And do you need a blu-ray drive? ultimatednc November 29, 2012 10:50:05 PM I'm willing spend maybe ~$200 for the GPU, but really all I need is something that can run the above games at a medium/high settings and good FPS. The Blu-ray drive included in my build has blu-ray playback capabilities, just need 3rd party software. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
