So I'm looking to build a desktop computer that I'll use for gaming. I mainly want to be able to run flash games on all high (and get no lag after round 50 in bloons tower defense 5). My current computer is sooooo slow and lags all the time. Ill also be doing some moderate gaming in half life 2 and other source games (And half life 3 when it comes out! lol!). Is this build good enough to be somewhat future proof against the newest flash and source games? Thanks!
