  1. lol i meant doubt it but i got a smilie face
  2. My recommendation... with OS and monitor included no you cant get a quad core processor...perhaps u should increase your budget again to play all the games you mentioned smoothly at 1080p...

    Don't get your expectations too high. This setup can play most games medium-high at 1080p but upcoming games will be more demanding.
