Posted a screenshot from Newegg I just want to know if this is a good gaming rig. I want a computer that can run Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, and other new games I would like to add on this computer.

I don't know if you would wanna switch CPU, my cousin has the 2120 and I have the 965, if you overclock the 965 it is better for gaming, but the stock cooler is really loud so you might want an aftermarket cooler.
