    My toaster can run Dark Souls. I bought my pc 4 and a half years ago for 320$ and i can still run every game that comes out. Granted i am really starting to get bad framerate in the newer ones.

    Before you go dumping money into a pc, make sure you shop around a little first. My pc is 7 yrs old and I got it for $200. Reason it was so cheap is because it's a refurbished pc. Same pc at regular price was about $700.
    Also, since you don't seem to be computer literate, (as in not knowing what you really need), try to take someone with you who knows computers well so you don't get ripped off or end up buying something you don't really want.

    hello

    this depends mainly on your budget

    But normally you can go for an

    Processor
    i5 - 3rd generation
    i7 -3820

    GPU
    GTX 560 ti

    Mother board
    ASROCK Z77 Pro4
    ASROCK Z77 extreme4
    RAM
    8 GB corsair vengence or g skill

    I also suggest you buy a Desktop than a Laptop as desktop components are cheaper and more powerful

    Also never go for alienware or apple

    You can go for asus and dell

    Hope this helps (you can run crysis 3 at normal with this)

    OP sent me a link for a machine. It is a desktop, close to your specs at a pretty good price.
    dooshka if you can afford it and get it now, go ahead mate.
