Hello, I would build this computer myself but right now I don't have the time nor the desire to so .I'm going to buy 1 and I was wondering if you think this build has the power to play modern and games will come out years to come so I don't have to upgrade immediately.
iBUYPOWER POWER TG930SLC Gaming PC - 3rd Gen. Intel Core i5-3350P 3.1GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660, Liquid Cooling, Windows 8 64-bit

Thanks for the help!

not at 1080p maybe 1600x900 but that's still a stretch

The time nor the desire?

It takes about 3 hours if you're brand new; less than one hour if you've got experience. You'll get a WAY better computer for WAY less money. (And if you don't want to because you think it's hard, it isn't - it's LEGOs for adults, with plenty of youtube videos to watch and pause to do each step.)

I agree with darksable. I didn't think about the fact that it involves less than a night of your time.

Yes it would! You may not get 60 FPS all the time, but without mods you'd get a pretty damn near close. I have the 660ti and the i7-3770k and with a TON of mods I'm getting between 40 and 60 FPS smooth.

Well, we can't really say that it is overpriced until he tells us the price. I do agree on the second part though.

It costs $889 for it. And yea the liquid cooling sounds like overkill. Well if you guys dont think itll be able to run these games on ultra ill build one my own then. Thanks for the help!

Well before finding this "deal" I researched and put together this list of components and I was wondering what you guys thought. Heres what I got , ecs- p67h2 as my mb, an intel i5 core, and a radeon hd 7870 ghz edition 2gb. Will this be a good build?
Sorry for all the questions...

Check out my build. It's similar...but not...and I can run both those games on Ultra at 1080p.
