original plan was this but some things went out of stock...


I an coming from an xbox 360 so any improvement is good.


Not an extreme settings/performance guy just wanna relax and play a fun game after I get off of school.


I plan on biuldng this when the next gen consoles come out.


I'm making minimum wage so I dont have any wiggle room.


Need any other info just ask and if if I say sompthing illinformed just let me know.

do you live by a microcenter? because that can save you a lot of money if you dont mind driving there

Added a beast quad core and a Radeon 7770, this GPU is nothing short of amazing and will run BF3 at medium settings on 1080p with 30+FPS no problem. You will be able to max out CoD at 1080p with this card too. Also as you might know, you should stay away from builds centered around an APU since this build with a dedicated GPU will blow it out of the water. And one more thing, you may encounter some problems with dx11 applications since Windows XP uses dx9.

No We don't even have a functioning mall... But if I ever see one I'll probobly chech it out.

Saw your comment from earlier, Direct X is  collection of Application Programming Interfaces for handling tasks related to multimedia, specifically gaming and other video related tasks. Newer versions are made compatable for newer games since newer games are more advanced and require stronger GPUs and such.
