Please help me answer a few questions about a new build!

Ok, I love to play Counterstrike Global Offensive. So I had to buy some new parts and hopefully have an outcome of great fps. Please feel free to tell me opinions on what kind of fps and gameplay I should be getting from this system. Thanks in advance people!

CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

Motherboard - GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Memory - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7Q-16GBZM

Case - COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

GPU - EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti Free Performance Boost Video Card - 1GB, GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0 (x16), Dual DVI, HDMI, DirectX 11, SLI Ready

Headphones(if they matter) - Sennheiser HD280pro+

Water Cooler for CPU - Still debating(please give me advice on which water cooler I should buy for the 3570... im pretty newbie at this stuff and I want something to keep it nice and cool while in game even.)

PSU - Thermaltake toughpower W0105RU 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Monitor - BenQ XL2420T Black-Red 24" 5ms (2ms GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Height & Pivot Adjustable 120Hz 3D-Ready LCD Monitor 350 cd/m2 DC 12M:1 (1000:1)

I will also be running windows 7 ultimate, Kingston SH103S3/120G HyperX 120GB Solid State Drive - 120GB, SATA III, 2.5"(555MB/s Read / 510MB/s Write) and a regular 7200 rpm drive and maybe a raptor.

The Main thing I want to know is how many fps average do you guys think I should get? And will I be able to run at 120Hz consistently. Any other advice is always appreciated. Thanks guys.

  1. With such an excellent build, why would you want to limit it with a 560 Ti?

    I would suggest a 660Ti/7950 to game at 50 ~ 60 fps on all the latest games at Full HD.

    But as you are probably aware 120 Hz will help run at 120fps. Which is good. But your hardware needs to support it. And the 560 Ti definitely doesn't cut it. Hell, even the 7970 can't cut all games at 120fps.

    Your best bet would be CF/SLI two high end cards to get 120 fps (for newer games).

    For the game you mentioned, yes. The 560 Ti can do the job. But I sincerely wouldn't want you to buy that.

    Edit: Oh, and maybe you should go for 2 * 8 GB ram sticks instead of 4 * 4. I believe only LGA2011 supports quad - channel memory. Not sure though. Will try to find more info.
