For that money you would be better off saving up a bit more because you will just end up with components that won't be upgradable and lesser quality than you want. If you do decide to go for it then an APU build would be about the only option for maybe being able to play those games.

no problem. To clear up any confusion, This build uses an APU. this is a mid range processor with a good quality built-it graphics chip. This loe won't game very well but you can "crossfire" it with a lower end GPU (the 6670) and get about the same performance of a modern low to mid range card and actually get some gaming capabilities.

yeah i understand what you mean .. aslong as this can run WoW,LoL on ok graphics am happy ... say i got this build .. after a while could i replace parts to make it better ??

The processor is kind of stuck but you can always get a new GPU at which point you will need a more powerful PSU as well.

Stuck ? does that mean if i wanted a need processor i would have to buy new parts for everything ?
