Read the reviews on any of those cards in the link to get a general idea.

Quote:
I am able to play Batman Arkham Asylum, DC Universe Online, and Borderlands on medium settings at 1280 x 800 without stuttering.


Quote:
I'm able to play Battlefield 3 on lowest settings at 1280x720. I get around 40-45 FPS, which I wasn't expecting since someone said you can't run modern games on this.


Quote:
I can get GTAIV running with low settings and 1280x720 with about 35-40fps.



It will probably hold you over for a while, just know if you plan on upgrading this will be the first thing you want to replace... the reviews are a little better than I expected i'll admit that... and the deal is definitely fair for the price.

I will say though, from personal experience. League of Legends is so beautiful on 1920x1080 or anything greater... the difference between 1080p+ and any other resolution is like night and day. Oh and fast terrain.... nobody wants to have to use that.

I recommend these changes

Processor/ CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103995

reason - The AMD FX series really isn't worth it unless you go FX-8150, and if you have that amount of money I would recommend going Intel I5 instead. This processor IS faster than the 4100. (if you want the facts about the 4100 read the 1 star reviews, all those other reviews just praise it without any technological backing)

Power Supply/ PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371031

reason - more reputable brand

Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131728

reason - more reputable brand
