Should run most things on mid-high settings.

Tweaked that build to get you a case that is compatible with the front USB 3.0 port hookups and some faster, low profile RAM. Comes out to an even $500.

Is that system better graphics than an X1? Asking because I want to know if x1/pc releases will be better for me on that PC.

They're about even. Which means the X1 will come out a little ahead, all said and done

I'm all for options that give around the same performance, but the 7870 and the 650Ti Boost really aren't equal. There is no reason to go with the 650 unless you hate ATI.
