Hello, well i am looking to get a budget PC until i can save up to get good upgrades for it e.g. amd 8350 4.6 ghz overclocked cpu 8 cores and a Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC, and i was just wondering if i could play high end games on normal or maybe even lower graphial settings, can you please tell me which of these games i would be able to run at 30-50 fps and on what settings,

These games are:

-BF3
-GTA 4
-Metro 2033
- crysis 2
- Payday: The Heist
- L4D2
- CoD Black Ops 2
-Arma 2
- Skyrim

These are the Specs of my budget PC:

AMD FX6100 Black Edition Bulldozer Six Core 3.3GHz AM3+ Processor
3.9GHZ WITH TURBO SPEED

BIOSTAR Socket AM3+ MOTHERBOARD

1TB SATA HARD DRIVE

TEAM ELITE 16GB DDR3 1333MHZ WITH HEATSINK

VTX3D Radeon HD6850 1GB DDR5 256Bit X Edition GRAPHICS CARD

SAMSUNG 22x DVDRW SATA DRIVE

EVO LABS 700W PSU

WINDOWS 7 ULTMATE 64BIT PRE-INSTALLED & ACTIVATED

whats ur budget and country of origin?

16gb ram is useless, 6850 is on par with 7770 which is alot cheaper. But in your budget range your gonna want something like a 7850, or gtx 660. 700 w is also overkill.

If you build it yourself you'll get a far better system out of it. There's no need to pay money for Windows 7 Ultimate - that money is better spent elsewhere.

well it depends if hes comfortable doing so.

Are you getting an aftermarket CPU cooler? I ask because Biostar tends to not leave much room between the cpu and first pci slot. A large air cooler may end up blocking that port.

I found out the hard way...

Interesting, I didn't know that about Biostar but that's good to know.

biostar motherboards id stay away from, i do not recommand them at all. asrock does just as good for the money and more quality.

You don't need hte extra thermal compound - that's a waste of money - and CIT cases and PSUs I'd advise against. You can definitely do better on that budget, I'd suggest:
