You'd most likely be better off buying a pre built PC. There's virtually no way that I or anyone else can give you a rig that can run those games well. Up your budget a bit and then ask again

With extensive rebate abuse, assuming you only need the box (no OS, monitor, or peripherals), I can just barely get something which you could call a gaming build if you squinted.

Seriously: there are budget-oriented graphics cards which cost $200. You aren't going to get much on that budget.

EDIT: And I should emphasize: to get something acceptable for gaming, you really want to be looking at a larger budget... and that's assuming you don't need to buy Windows. If you do... honestly a prebuilt may be the better option, since big manufacturers almost certainly get discounts on bulk Windows OEM licenses.

Rebates are worthless. You are $50 over his budget

It's not good and it's not really gaming but...whatever

I wouldn't wish that PSU on my worst enemy. The only positive thing I can say about the N1 is that it isn't an outright fire hazard.

I never said it was a good PSU.

In fact the whole build is crap...I know.

I would much rather go with the CX430 but I wanted to hit right on the dot for his budget.
