Please tell me your opinion on my new PC

I had a budged around 400€ and I use the PC for average tasking, internet, non-heavy multimedia and gaming. The gaming is mainly Source engine, and games before 2010. This is what I bought:

Motherboard: ASRock 960GM-GS3 FX

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Quad-Core Black Edition
GPU: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6570 Ultimate 1GB GDDR3
SPU: Asus Xonar DG 5.1 PCI
Memory: Kingston ValueRAM 4GB DDR3 1333 PC3-10600 CL9

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA3
DVD: Liteon IHAS120
Network: TP-Link TL-WN851ND 300Mbps 11n Wireless PCI

Plus a miniatx case with power supply, VAT, building & testing...

Will I be able to play Source engine games at 1080 resolution at high settings (antialias disabled, anisotropic disabled)?

Thanks.

  1. You didn't need the sound card.

    GPU is a bit underpowered, but for Source games it should be fine.

    Good choice on the CPU.

    It should be absolutely fine for Source games :)

    Thanks I use the sound car because I want a high quality sound, with positioning effects and also to liberate some cpu load. The onboard sound is terrible.

    Ahh, fair enough. Most modern motherboards have decent audio, so that's unfortunate :(
