Ok so I've been running a 2009 computer with a decent processor (not compared to both of the mentioned ones below though) and a crappy graphics card compared to the ones that are coming out. I want a new gaminc pc that play most of the 2012 games, and can be upgraded. These are 2 I saw on newegg and have gotten positive feedback from:
AMD FX-Series FX-4100(3.6GHz)
8GB DDR3 500GB HDD Capacity
AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883229285

AMD FX-Series FX-8100(2.8GHz)
6GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity
AMD Radeon HD 7350 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883103411

Which build would be better to play games such as:
LoL High Graphics, no lag high fps.
Tera High - Medium, no lag decent fps.
Guild wars 2 - Whichever would be better.

Ty gaming community in advance!

#1 (rather) would be more suitable for you, although I wouldn't say it's "good."

A "good" computer would run about $600-650 with quality components. I threw this together in a few minutes. It has a decent value to performance ratio without skimping on anything: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rjiR

If you wanted to know exactly what corners were cut for that CyberPower PC, you can check this review: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1762/1/

The setup they op linked is fine, a little gimp on the gpu though. You can get a gtx 650ti on that psu. But if you ever wanna oc that cpu to show it's real potential you'll ned a stronger psu.

Here's a review for the "450W" version of the CyberPower PSU:

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/artic...ly-Review/1212

If you check LegitReviews, the actual hardware in the CyberPower PC is listed:

- AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz Processor
- Gigabyte M68MT-S2 Motherboard
- 2 x 4GB ADATA DDR3 1333MHz Memory
- AMD Radeon HD 6670 Video Card
- Azza Orion 202
- Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB
- Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
- LITE-ON 24X DVD Writer HS124
- Turbolink 500W ATX Power Supply
- Xtreme Gear USB Keyboard
- Xtreme Gear USB Mouse

The computer was okay in 2011 (aside from the bad PSU) and is completely awful in 2012.
