Time Crisis 3 is more fitting for 500 dollars.

Seems I got lucky when I asked my question, and might as well be the white knight before you turn on the PC gaming life. To answer yours, no $500 will not be near if you want a PC to surpass say and Xbox ONE or PS4 with the added PC stuff. If you want a great PC with spectacular specs, you'll want to spend around 800-900 bucks. IMHO save up till you get that amount, you'll be better off trust me.

Depends on what "max" means. 4K triple monitor 144hz highest settings? Probably not.

You can wish for it though. I hear that always works.

$570 after rebates ($630 before) and includes Windows 7...obviously knock off $100 without the OS. Will run any game at 1080p quite well. The EVGA Superclocked 750 is on par with a 750ti reference card, and it's a great deal atm for budget gaming system.

You will get minimums in the 30 FPS on High with low AA/AF, not playable at Very High as that review shows.
