Will this build work fine? Opinions and Suggestions are all welcome!

This is my first time building a Gaming PC, I have a rather tight budget and my specs are written below:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 Haswell 3.2GHz LGA 1150 $199.99
Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance LGA 1150 Intel H87 $104.99
GPU: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 XT w/Boost $259.99
RAM: Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) $76.99
HDD: Western Digital WD Black 1TB 7200 RPM $89.99
PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 500W $59.99
Casing: COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer $89.99

Total is $882

I would most probably not do any overclocking, crossfire or SLI, just basically using the whole thing as it is.
I would like to ask if all of these fits nicely as in my psu is enough to power up the whole system?
Would this build be able to play most games at high settings? games like bf3, crisis 3, far cry 3, skyrim etc at 1080p?
Any other opinions/ suggestions are all welcome~ thank you so much guys!

  1. Best answer
    yes everything will work and what you have stated that it should be fine. I would switch the 7870 to a 760, it has better specs will get you more fps in the game you listed.
  2. That and the 760 is 10$ cheaper and has PhysX, which is always nice. Also, get cheaper RAM. Like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/kingston-memory-khx16c9b1rk28x

    Thanks for this suggestion, take for example MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 760 2GB is at $259.99 the same like the 7870 i posted, but in my country the price of GTX760 is overpriced, im doing calculations in $USD to make things simple, anyway i'll look into it.. thx!

    if the price will be to unreasonable then just stick with the gpu you selected, its not that it wont be bad but it will be able to still play games on ultra. be sure to select best answer to anyone who helped! Have fun and good luck.
  5. OK i will.... just waiting for other opinions and suggestions... thx guys!
