    You won't be playing with shadows on (and maybe not ultra everywhere else depending on your resolution). Your motherboard won't let you drop in a nicer CPU in the future and overclock. Another $100-200 would go a long way towards a CPU/mobo that would last longer and a more powerful GPU.

    yeah wish i had the extra money but honestly Not sure imma care much about playing stuff on ultra I currently play on a laptop with everything on low Basically just wanna be able to run smooth FPS with decent graphics. And my monitor for this is a 17 inch so probably 1280 by 720 resolution for most gaming. (im blind in 1 eye and anything bigger than 17" monitor usually give me a headache) I basically was just looking for a warning don't buy this part cause its terrible or something. Thx for the advice though I honestly had about another 150 higher system built in my head before I came down to earth and realized by budget . I might try to swap out the mobo for something slightly better if i can though.
