Default Another hapless soul

Would this be a decent build for a gaming PC? Thanks in advance.

- Windows 7 Home 64 bit
- GIGABYTE GA-770TA-UD3 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
- AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz, no OC.
- 4GB DDR2 memory, dual channel.
- EVGA 01G-P3-N958-LR NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT, 1GB, PCI-E.
- Realtek ALC888 On-board sound.
- Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD5000BEVT 500GB SATA.
- Rosewill LIB-800 800W 50C power supply.

I plan to run games such as the Left 4 Dead series, the Assassin's Creed series, the Call of Duty series, and the Battlefield: Bad Company series. I'm already used to super low graphics, so even if the games don't run on full, I'm prepared.

The build I use right now is a Sempron 3000 with the GeForce 9500GT. At least it runs MW2 at lowest settings and everything at "No" ...

Other than the low end video card, it looks great.

You should at least get a better performing card such as a HIS Radeon HD 5770 1GB. That 9500GT is severely going to hold you back.

Thank you sir, for the quick reply.
Anyways, I'm not sure if the 5770 would really fit in my budget, I'd like to keep this all under $800 if possible...
