Windows 7: buying a barebones kit off tigerdirect?

buying a barebones kit off tigerdirect?

I was looking for parts for a second rig and then I found these things called barebones kits that come with everything a DIY rig would need and this one looks pretty interesting and well worth the price so can y'all tell me if you think that these specs can play crysis 2 on high-very high?

MSI P67A-C43 B3 Core i5 Barebones Kit - MSI P67A-C43 B3 Mobo, Intel Core i5-2500K, Corsair 4GB DDR3 RAM, GeForce GTS 250 512MB, Seagate 1TB HDD, Thermaltake V3 Tower, 600W PSU, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

the reason I'm using crysis 2 is because that's basically become the benchmark for all rigs graphically. Anyways help appreciated

Your graphics card is your weakest link, by far. It will play Crysis 2, but not likely at high-very high.

Probably in and around medium. (A lot will depend upon the resolution you want to run). A GTS250 is practically equivalent to my Nvidia 9800GTX+ card.

Here is a thread on this very topic
Crysis 2 on GTS250??? - Games-General-Discussions - General

Seems some report about 30fps at 1280x720 at high with a GTS250.

Unfortunatly not alot, however if you have a spare £40 you can spend on top, you could upgrade to about a gefroce 430, which would be better for modern games, however the 500+ range would be best for you by the sounds of what you want, but they carry a hefty price.

that's a bummer but I did find another kit with a Radeon HD 6570 1GB and I know that can play games at high resolution overclocked for sure. And the kit's cheaper but it doesn't come with an OS but I have that handled here's the specs.

MSI A75MA-G55 AMD Dual Graphics Barebones Kit - MSI A75MA-G55 Mobo, AMD Quad-Core A8-3850 APU, Radeon HD 6570 1GB, Corsair 8GB (2x 4GB), Seagate 1TB HDD, 24x DVDRW, Thermaltake V2 Mid-Tower, 450W PSU

I think after a while I'll upgrade the PSU and then move on towards the CPU maybe a black edition well either way tell me what y'all think
