gaming pc recommendation

need help in defining a build for a mostly gaming PC (some VMware might occur sometimes). i'm not looking for an high-end solution but yet something that will be enjoyable for a few years.

I need the build to fit my existing equipment:
Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB WD20EARX
Geforce 8800 GTS 320MB

My budget is around the below build but i can go up a bit.
intel H77EB motherboard
CPU intel i5-3470
Kingston 8GB

( Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB WD20EARX
Geforce 8800 GTS 320MB )


Thanks!

  1. Exactly what parts do you need and what do you have now? Do you need Windows? Power supply, case, etc?

    if you keep the 8800 GTS, you might as well just not upgrade for gaming. That's still going to be the bottleneck and kill game performance.
  2. sorry should have been more precise,
    i have a PSU, case, hard drive, discrete graphic card, dvd burned and all software, so all i need for this upgrade is a mobo, CPU, and memory (unless i'm forgetting something)
    i will also upgrade the geforce 8800 but it doe not have to happen immediately.


    Thanks!
  3. anyone?
  4. What's your budget again? I didn't see it in your first post.
  5. around 400$ for the cpu, mobo and memory
