About the best you are going to do. Will get good FPS on medium-high settings with little anti-aliasing.

Wow thats an amazing build for such a small budget

The Radeon 7770 graphics card is MUCH more powerful than the integrated graphics and will game much better than a console

If the Corsair CX 430 power supply is still discounted its only $24 on Newegg and its a better unit than the Basiq .
That would give a little more to spend on the case, or to add a DVD drive

Can i be able to use Used PC parts As a last
option
January 23, 2013 11:21:12 PM

What is the reason to only use TigerDirect?

January 23, 2013 11:32:16 PM

I don't think a sub $500 build is going to be possible with TigerDirect. What parts do you have as spare?
January 23, 2013 11:34:47 PM

Go ahead and reuse your Hard Drive for now. All items are in amazon. I was about to suggest a HD 7850 1GB edition, but that will result in $530. This build here should able to play BF3 on medium settings at least...

Where will you go to buy components then? I don't quite understand. It was TigerDirect, now Amazon. Are you going to a local retailer? That HDD might not be SATA, I would check on that too.

Unfortunately thats not as good a build as using the phenom

I think the OP just needs to use a credit card and order stuff online .

+1 to that statement. You can't get half of the components at Tigerdirect for under $500.
