Does this work for a gaming pc?

CPU - Intel i5-4570 quad core processor
MOBO - Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H Socket 1150 Intel H87 Chipset
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x4gb) DDR3 1600MHz
Storage - Seagate desktop HDD 1TB 3.5" SATA3 64MB
PSU - Cooler master i700-series 700W
GPU - ASUS GeForce GTX 650 TI BOOST 2GB GDDR5
Optical Drive - LiteOn IHAS124-04 Internal 24x
Tower - Cooler Master Elite 344 Black USB3.0 Micro ATX

I'd also appreciate any feedback so I could improve this if possible.

  1. maybe use a different psu, this is a better choice
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139050

    700 watts is way more then you need for this build and save you a few dollars.
    if you could try to get atleast a gtx 660. thats the lowest recommended card today for gaming and other then that you should be set
  2. Everything but the power supply. That's cheap and unreliable and bigger than you need anyways. Just buy a reliable 550w-600w power supply like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096.

    Also, do everything you can to fit a more powerful graphics card in there. I would rebuild the system to use an i5-3350p and h77 chipset motherboard to save money, drop the optical drive, and buy a cheaper, mid tower case.
  3. It works but you are spending to little on the GPU compared to CPU and board. Also cooler master PSUs are not the best and even if you get a better GPU (I recommend at least a GTX760) you only need a 500W power supply if its a good make.
  4. Budget ???location??
    There are errors in that built
    I ll get u the best built in ur budget

    Also, an AMD option would be something like a M5A97 R2.0 MB + FX 6350 for even less than a 3350p or 4570. You could even OC the 6350 if you're so inclined.
  7. Okay, so I understand I was missing a lot of information and I'll try to correct some of those now. If possible, i'd like to spend under $900 and would preferably use an intel CPU & Windows 7 Home premium(I think thats the cheapest one). I live in Toronto, Ontario. It's also my first time and I was just trying to piece together items I thought would be a good fit. I'd like to run games like Diablo3 and COD Ghost without lack of fps (i plan on playing mmorpgs in the future like Blade&Soul and Cabal 2 and was hoping I would have sufficient frames) and I think i'll go with a Seasonic SS-500ET 500W

    3350p + better GPU would be good for all of that. So would the AMD setup as well. You cannot go wrong with either one.
  9. Okay, how about this.
    Same CPU 199.99
    Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 Socket 1150 Intel B85 Chipset | Dual Channel DDR3 79.99
    RAM Patriot Viper 3 Mamba black 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHZ 74.99
    Same Storage 69.99
    PSU - Seasonic SS-500ET 500W 64.99
    GPU - ASUS GeForce GTX 660 2GB GDDR5 209.99
    Tower - Cooler Master Elite 344 Black 39.99
    Optical Drive - LiteOn Internal 24x 19.99
    Windows Home Premium 94.99

    Total is 852.93. Is this good or bad? What can I improve on? What can I substitute to save more? What should I upgrade for better performance? Please help ;s
