    Well, for a budget build, I could say that your parts are pretty decent enough and can let you play all games on high settings PROVIDED that you settle on playing on a lower but decent 1360 x 768 resolution monitor (or up to 1440 x 900 resolution).

    The HD7750 is currently considered as an entry level gaming GPU that would do well on lower resolutions, thus is the card to get if you're on a strict budget.

    But if you could get the HD7770 instead then that would definitely be better, can play almost all games on high settings on 1080p.

    This is not good for gaming. I don't know what your budget is, or what games you like to play, but you will want an intel i5 series for a good combination of price and performance, then you will need at least 2 times the hard drive space because game files can be massive and you want to have a motherboard that can support up to 32 gb of RAM to run the games without lag. I would recommend starting with 2 x 16 then getting more later. And for graphics I would recommend nvidia gtx series ( any one), but you might want an i7 with this because the games with the graphics this series can handle are big files. I'm sorry to change your whole build, but I have bad expirences with AMD processors for gaming. This build would be good for almost everything but gaming. If you look at the right places for the right parts this can still be a $600-1,000 build.

    that is definently a good PC build!

    how much is all this costing, and if you want to run any better, you can update the ram to 16 for only about 60-80 more dollars(:
