Fast but cheap gaming PC?

I want a fast pc that can play recent games like BF3 and FC3 at high detail, but I can't afford much. Is this pc good and can you suggest any ways I can make it cheaper? Thanks

  1. I recommend switching that crappy psu for at least the xfx 450w :

    you have also chosen a laptop hdd, change for a proper hdd :
  2. Firstly, I don't feel you need the sound card. I feel you would need to spend a bit more to get a decent sound card like the Essence STX from ASUS for audiophiles so you can remove that. The power supply dj recommends looks good I'd want something a little larger in case you wanted to move up from the 7850 a lot of the modern cards have a minimum requirement of 500 watts and a decent requirement on the 12v rail so maybe a 550 or even the 650 watt version from xfx or corsair wouldn't be a bad idea. My biggest complaint is that you have a lot of no name brands associated with your build your memory for example is that the name of the ram vendor extra value really?
  3. The case he might get by, although it's a crappy case, and like bigshootr8 said you better switch the ram, i didn't see what it was, get proper ram at lowest price there :
