Budget Gaming Rig looking for expert advice (Please Help).

I am looking for:

  • Something that can run BF3, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Planetside 2, AC3, Black Ops II and Watchdogs at their full glory.

  • I'll be using a 18.5" 1360x768 max resolution monitor. So, I will not be running anything at 1920x1080. So please suggest a GPU that can run all the above games at full graphics at 1360x768.

I was able to build this. Are all the parts balanced? At the resolution I am running at will the GPU process things very quickly and the processor will find it difficult to cope up with the GPU? Or is this build fine?

Thanks in advance!

Personally, I think you should be fine. My son plays BF3, Planetside and Skyrim on high settings at that sort of resolution. He has a GTX560SE, which I think is about comparable with the graphics card you have. The SSD may be overkill for a gaming rig. My only query would be whether dual core is enough to get the data to the GPU fast enough. My son upgraded from a 3-core AMD to a 4-core AMD FX at the same he upgraded the graphics card. He's seeing really good performance which he attributes in significant part to the higher bandwidth of the processor. That said, the i3 is a good part. You'll need to add W7 to that config, of course.
