I was on youtube searching for a good budget gaming pc and i was wondering if this was a good budget build for games like gta 4,MOH,arma2,bfbc2,bf3,skyrim to run on on med-high

intel Core i3-2120 CPU:

Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 Motherboard:

Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 Graphics Card:

PNY Optima 4GB RAM:

Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB Hard Drive:

Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500W Power Supply:

Antec Three Hundred Case:

Sony DVD Burner:

Instead of having 4g could i upgrade it to 8gb would it fit in the MOBO? and also later on could i upgrade the graphics card to something a little bit better? And should i upgrade the CPU to i5-2310? this is all later on btw im trying to keep my budget under 600$ best as possible thanks!

Are you limited to just shopping at Amazon or will you use other e-tailers? If you'll shop around this is what you could get:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

That price is after a $10 rebate, but Newegg has a $10 off combo deal for the motherboard/memory.
