Hi everyone,
In the next following days I will buy this rig, It would be like this : Intel core i3 3320, Sapphire HD 6950, 8GB Ram corsair vengeance, 500GB seagate. I was wondering, can I run modern games at the resolution of 1280x720 with high settings?
Thanks

You could run modern games at 1920x1080 with high settings...

Yes you can but if you are gaming at a low resolution an i5 with a slightly weaker graphics card would be better.
So try if the i5-3350p fits in your budget.

Get i5 3470 + hd 7850 or gtx 650ti.both will maxout any games at 720p.

Not really. An I3 won't particularly bottleneck a HD 6950.

And you could play most modern games at sorta high/ultra settings in 1080p with that setup.
