thanks for your help
Whether or not you could play it well depends on the resolution you play at...
How big can your monitor go?
I think the 5770 can probably handle newer games up to 1920x1200 just fine, and with lowered settings can probably handle most newer games at 2560x1600 fine as well.
At the highest graphics settings you can probably get 60+FPS at 1680x1050-1920x1200 on the games you mentioned.
You'd have to look at benchmarks as I'm not 100% sure on that.
I know you'd at least get playable frame rates. So 40~+ FPS at least with the highest graphics settings.
If you overclock your 5770 you can probably handle those games with ease tbqh.
Also if you're buying an OEM Phenom II X3 720, make sure you pick up a cooler for it.
I suggest either a Rifle Cooler for $20-30 or a Cooler Master Hyper 212 for $30-40
(Cooler Master would perform better than the Rifle Cooler, I'm not sure if it's worth the $10 extra or not though.)
