You might be able to get medium settings in those games. The 6670 (not a powerful card at all) is only the ddr3 version, so I would be more comfortable saying you will end up with playable FPS on low settings in those games.

Do you know of any computers around this price that could possibly run games at a decent/comfortable frame rate on medium settings.

Thank you so much for the effort you put in to help me, top notch! This is the greatest forum!

btw, the build i posted is a build it yourself, but I'm a teen and frankly it's like putting legos together.
December 31, 2012 2:01:01 PM

Yh man, im happy to put it all together, haha, im pretty good with electronics. Thanks again.

I was just wondering if the parts you stated are all compatible, like i said, im new and was just wondering, i dont want to buy parts that wont coincide with each other.

would the Intel i5 Core-3450 Quad 3.1GHz work with the build posted above?
January 2, 2013 11:32:17 PM

yes it would the G860 is more to keep the price down. if you have more cash to burn go with this one
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Generation-i5-3570K-3-40G...

the K there means that it is unlocked it can be overclocked if you want to, this is a very good cpu. in my opinion it is better to wait a bit get more money and get a better case and a better mother board. because the micro atx doesn't leave much for upgrades in the future.

in all honesty i might just wack an i3 in the build above and keep it how it is, thanks for your help, anybody have a link to a compatible i3?
January 3, 2013 12:48:55 AM

any sandy bridge or ivy bridge i3 would work as long as it has a 1155 socket , and stay away from any kind of ram over 1.5 volts you should be fine.
January 3, 2013 12:58:40 AM

1.5v RAM is standard RAM and is what is intended for intel sandy bridge & ivy bridge. 1.65V RAM is non-standard RAM that is too many volts for Sandy Bridge. There is also 1.35V RAM including a very nice set sold by samsung that overclock incredibly well on intel when overvolted to 1.5V. So 1.5V DDR-1600 RAM is what you want, yes.
January 3, 2013 12:59:00 AM

yes that is what most ram are rated over 1.5 would void your warranty.
