Hey,

• AMD FX-4100 Processor
• 8GB Vengeance 1866MHz RAM
• AMD HD 7770 1GB Video
• ASUS USB3 & SATA3 MB
• 1TB SATA3 7200 RPM HD
• 24X DVD -R/ -RW Drive
• Raidmax Viper Gaming Case

do you think this could run cod:bl2, borderlands 2 and battlefield on mid to high settings at 50 fps

No this is the correct forum if you are buying a prebuilt system. The cpu isn't that good on the system. Can you give a link to it and can you give your budget?

1. there is no OS. So I hope you have one.

2. Do you have "extra" money for a item with a rebate? if not the build will not work but the ssd is free if you can afford it.

assuming 1 & 2 Now let me make some changes to it. Also its a few $ cheaper after rebates

So I would go with the generic cooler with the cpu, upgrade the case, get extra fans, (that was the $20 from the cooler).

I downgraded the data hard drive to 500GB and upped the psu to 500W corsair.

Benchmarks on the 7770.

EDIT also how comfortable are you with installing your own graphics card? if you are comfortable It could open some options.

I built my own using the bargain or budget build information I garnered from this sight for $500 bucks, and it works like a dream and would play all of the titles you mention.

My build has an I-3 2100, AMD Sapphire 6870, Antec 400 W PSU, and 500 GB hard drive. I know I am probably leaving a few of the particulars out, but all info is right here on Tom's hardware, and many of those components would probably be cheaper now.

I know I could probably improve a component here and there, but I built this a ways back and it still performs amazingly, particularly when I think about the price. It was my first build and I will never do anything but build in the future because the value proposition simply cannot be matched, in my opinion....

Deaths reply is correct you could save money or get a better pc building it yourself.

I assumed that you were not looking for that. ooc can you afford the ssd if you were to get the rebate? or would you be willing to add a card to a system(as it opens up other options)?

The graphics card is worse, and the 7770 might not give you the performance you would want(it will be close). But it has windows.

All these come with a keyboard and mouse except #2 all these will be around $700 after shipping and possibly rebates

1. If you need a copy of windows and are willing to do a little work then This

&

2. If you are ok without a warranty and an open box item then this

3. If you have some extra money but cant budget it on a computer forever then this
http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/saved/1EKY3M
This needs a copy of windows if you can find a copy for $85 this would be $700 after both rebates 1 is $95 one is $10.

4. If you are willing to get a computer that needs a bigger psu but is under warranty (you may have to ship this thing back once or twice)

ha, i was just thinking about that, does that mean i could be damaged/tampered with? or is it just like a second hand desktop or the packaging got damaged in stores?

EDIT: it says that there might not be all/any accessories in it, even if it is required to use all of the items functions. what would be classified as an accessories with a computer?

a power chord, keyboard, mouse, speakers.

The case could have wear, on it. But it wouldn't be tampered with. The warranty would be void except in certain states.
