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.

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.

Best solution

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