Okay what's your budget, because in this case, you will get better performance if you go for an AMD processor. Here's something I made for the same price, with a better graphics card, a better CPU, a better mobo, better memory, much more hard drive space, a better PSU, and a cooler looking case for a lower price. And you can play all those games on high-ultra!

Alright, First of all, a 7770 isn't better than a 650ti. It's worse. Secondly, at 1080p a 7770 will only get you medium settings in these games. For high settings you would need a 7850/gtx660 or better. A 7870/660ti would be able to max things.

There ya go. The 7850 2gb factory oc'ed twin frozr is MUCH MUCH better than a 650 ti LOL. I also have you 8gb ram for a few $ more, a better quality and cheaper psu, and theres no need in paying $12 for 100mhz on the g870 unless you really want to lol.

i would look at this. if you can get enough money for a 2GB version that would be a nice upgrade.

Except the case - cases that cheap ARE NOT WORTH IT. They cut corners on construction and have generally poor build quality. You don't want to get a crappy case whether it's a $500 build or a $5000 build. Get an NZXT Source 210 instead - $15 more and it's a far better case that will last a lot longer than Apex garbage will.

You're right. Crappy cases suck. They have an MSI case on sale for $22 on PcPartPicker. And Tiny Voices, I was wrong, I admit.....

while i agree when your on a tight budget you have to sacrifice something. it doesnt look like that msi case has any cable management either but its hard to tell from any pictures.
