    Runs BF4 on medium and Skyrim on medium to high. 550 TI is the weak spot.

    I may be mistaken but $1300 seems like a lot to pay for that. If you're adding a separate video card upgrade, that's a ~$1500 build.

    I would personally go with AMD. You can build a better machine for around $1000. Meaning even if you can't put it together yourself you'll have enough extra money to hire a professional.

    Here's an example.

    Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/34wKe/by_merchant/
    Benchmarks: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/34wKe/benchmarks/

    CPU: AMD FX-9370 4.4GHz 8-Core Processor ($229.99 @ TigerDirect)
    CPU Cooler: Thermaltake Water 3.0 Pro 99.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($69.99 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($119.99 @ NCIX US)

    AMD on a 1000USD+ build seems kind of a waste in my opinion.... Usually I mean.

    But I like AMD.

    Regardless, the prebuilt he listed is wasting a few hundred dollars. lol

    The reason why you'd not want AMD on a high-end / costly build is because AMD is not good with single-thread games (TERA, etc.)

    Only plays Burst Magic DPS Classes and Healers.
