Hi everyone, new here, I'm buying a new PC to play primarily BF3 and SW:TOR so by the looks of things need a pretty decent system and would love to play both games at high settings.

Here is the one I found and its seems quite good and wanted your opinion on whether it could run both games and whether its worth the money?

Price: £485.00

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Operating System: Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Motherboard: NEW! Gigabyte 880GM-USB3 Memory: 8GB DDR3 1333mhz (2x 4GB) Hard Drives: 1TB S-ATAII 3.0Gb/s Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA Graphics card: NEW! NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio Case: Xigmatek Asgard PSU: 400W Xigmatek

Thanks to anyone who replies!

Everything looks good except that. I'd get at least a 560 or a 480 instead of that. And personally I'd go with a 965 or 970 for the processor, but the 955 is fine.

PSU is pushing it a bit. I would recommend at least a 450W.
