Default gaming pc

I have around $1500 to spend on a gaming pc. I want to play battlefield 3, medal of honor warfighter, borderlands 2, etc on ultra settings with at least 50 frames. Can anyone reccomend me a pc that can do that? It has to be a pre built pc becuase I am not the best with computers.

Welcome to the forum.

If you don't want to build, look at iBUYPOWER Gaming PC: Custom Gaming Computers and Laptops or

For $1500 I'd get the Palidan E810 from below
iBUYPOWER Computer - 3rd Generation Intel Core Processor (formerly code named Ivy Bridge)

BUT I'D not get the 3770k i7, but the 3570k i5 and use the $150 savings for a 120 Gig SSD.

Thats $1509.

But look at the 2 sites, for gaming you omnly need an i5, the i7 is wasted money.
