Hey guys, I'm looking for a decent low budget gaming PC. The kind of games I would like to play are Skyrim, Diablo 3, Team Fortress etc...

The build I am looking at is:

AMD BULLDOZER FX-6200
ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3
8GB SAMSUNG 1333MHz
RADEON™ HD7770
1TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s

Would this be good enough to run smoothly on medium settings?

Probably, but it's not a great build. AMD Bulldozer is pretty bad at, well, everything, and HD7770 is sort of on the low side of mid-range.

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

he after budget gaming pc, and i think this is exactly what it is.

ive got an old dual core with an old gpu and i can play all these games with no problems

i5 2310/H61 mobo would be better. the specs you posted would handle TF2 maxed and skyrim on medium. of course that depends on resolution..

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

An i3 2100 would really be good enough, and allow for more money to be dedicated to the GPU.

that's much better, but not nearly the same price range. what's the budget for this?
