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:

  1. whats ur budget and country of origin?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. well it depends if hes comfortable doing so.
  5. 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.
  7. biostar motherboards id stay away from, i do not recommand them at all. asrock does just as good for the money and more quality.
  8. I am in the Uk and that rig is pre-made and only £420 so i ws gonna buy it so i have a pc now and then upgrade it around christmas time but i jst wanted to make sure that it can run these games even at low settings, so which of these could it run? and thank you for the comments but can i run any of these games and i cannot customise the rig yet so can i not have any other reccomendations yet please :)
  9. And i am only planning on upgrading the motherboard, CPU and GPU btw but if anything else is terrible or gonna bttleneck please tell me :)
  10. can u build it urself?
  11. Actually sorry guys i realised that this is very bad so i am going to build this new one myself and can i run those games on it because that is my original question :)

    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:
