    EDIT : TO THOSE IDIOTS THAT THINK WHAT I SAID WAS INCORRECT, THE GTX 650 TI HAS INDEED ALMOST THE SAME PERFORMANCE AS THAT OF THE GTX 560 NON TI, HERE IS A BENCHMARK TO PROVE THAT:

    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/543?vs=680

    I AM CURRENTLY USING A GTX 560 (PAIRED WITH AN I5-3470/ASROCK H77M MOBO) AND MY RESOLUTION IS 1600 X 900(20" SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER) AND I COULD PRACTICALLY UP UNTIL NOW CAN PLAY ALL GAMES ON MAX SETTINGS, EXCEPT FOR CRYSIS3 WHICH IS VERY GPU INTENSIVE.

    THUS THE GTX 650 TI LIKE THE GTX 560 CAN ALSO PLAY ALMOST ALL GAMES ON MAX SETTINGS ON A 1600 X 900 RESOLUTION.

    THE GAMES I AM CURRENTLY PLAYING ON MAX SETTINGS:

    DEAD ISLAND RIPTIDE

    DEAD SPACE 3

    FARCRY BLOOD DRAGON

    RESDIENT EVIL 6

    Yup, the GTX 650 ti can pretty much handle the games you mentioned BUT it should only be at a 1600 x 900 resolution monitor (20" monitor) since the card you indicated has only 1 gb VRAM and it would definitely prove to be inefficient when playing on 1080p and above resolution.

    BTW, the GTX 650 ti especially the boost edition has almost the same performance as that of the GTX 560 non ti, thus it can play all games on max settings on a 1600 x 900 resolution monitor.

    yes it handles all those games fine. arkham city may not run on high settings but the other 2 will and it will run all recent games but like you say on medium settings, some on high settings.

    thats a solid build. you'll be fine on games.

    only 2 things i would do:

    ask your self if you really need ultimate rather then pro or just HP

    look into the CM 912.

    high settings ? not really - that is almost a decent computer with almost decent parts. spend a little more on the card and you might be OK

    Ultimate ?? really ??

    THE ONLY BENEFIT is switching languages on the fly.... THATS IT. < pointless 99.99% of the time.

    800$ is a bit cheap. If you want a computer that can handle such games go for the Alienware M14x
