  1. You need to Upgrade your gpu if you want to play on max settings. That is definitely a gpu bottleneck. I would go atleast 7850/660. But If you have the budget might as well go with 7950/670.
  2. Should run games just fine, but seems a little pricey.

    The components you list only come to $556:

  3. well $606 canadian and i forgot to mention this is a prebuilt pc
  4. also if a desktop comes with intel hd 4000 could i put my own 6870
  5. Even at $606 that still leaves $374 for the case, motherboard, optical drive and operating system. I suppose, $60 for the case, $120 for the motherboard, $20 for the optical drive and $100 for the OS, that leaves around $75 as a builder's fee... Not that unreasonable,

    If it's prebuilt from a big name like Dell, ASUS, IBuyPower, etc... then I still think it's over-priced, but if a friend is building it for you, it's not unreasonable. If this is something you've found on the equivalent of E-Bay or Craigslist, run away!

    Edit: Yes, if your system comes with integrated Intel (or NVidia or AMD) graphics, you can still add a discrete graphics card.
