    It'll be a tough push with those needs. You can play high, but 25m will be tough. I dont think 40m are a problem simply because... you can't really get 40 people together any more for super old content. This is slightly over your budget, but I think it's as good as you can get for that price. If you can't swing the extra $50, then drop the video card down to an MSI 7770.

    If you look at chazus the only thing you can really change is the CPU and go to a I3-2100 or go the amd route and get a amd cpu and mobo.which will bring you down to your price range.
