I was originally going to build my own but my budget got cut down and i found this, So how will this run in the following games on Ultra settings with 1366x768 resolution Day-z,Crysis2,BF3,Guild wars 2, Wow MOP.
Another question is what is the AMD equivalent of that processor ? Last question is Will it be easy to upgrade on that machine or will it be hard considering its a small case?
Thanks in advance :)

This computer couldn't run BF3 or Crysis 2 or any of those high end games on ultra. Most of all, the graphics card and cpu isn't the best. You can run those games on medium with good fps but if you run it on high, your fps is probably going to be like 10.

Ah i see, Yeh medium is fine but do you know about Dayz ? its one of the main reasons im after a computer, and if you could link me any computers for around £345 i'd be thankful :)  (or anyone else reading this for that matter)

If you go with that pc you will need to upgrade the graphic card to something like the Radeon 6870 if you want it for gaming. I think the 6870 is the cheapest card you can go with in my opinion anything less and you will need to play the more demanding games on lower settings. I have the Asus 6870 factory overclocked card and its pretty good plus it looks great.

I forgot another thing the fx chips suck for gaming I had one and no good I ended up going with the i3 and it was much better plus I have the option to upgrade to the i5 or i7. If you are going for a gaming pc go for the phenom ii black I think this is a better choice either that or go with Intel. If you do decide to go with the FX chip make sure it is the black edition.

Add a graphics,card which should be at least the 550 Ti or the 7750. Those cards should be able to handle DayZ at medium quality. Plus, the computer contains an i3.


i sure wouldnt buy a pc from someone calculating the cpu core clock together

That's exactly the game I'm streaming in my games. I'm a streamer on Twitch and yes. Your computer can run Dayz just fine. You wont max everything out because of how bad the optimization was on that game but you can run medium with 40+ fps.

I hope you didn't buy yet. This graphics card can run those games better than your previous build but it's a bigger improvement. Your drawback is just your graphics card. Everything else is perfect.
