Hi Toms Hardware,

I am planning to buy a gaming and multitasking PC, and I would like to ask you, if this CPU configaration is enough to run this system?

Cabinet Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 Combat Mid Tower Cabinet

PSU: Corsair CMPSU-GS600W 600 Watts PSU

Motherboard: Asus Z87-A Motherboard

CPU: Intel 3.4 GHz LGA1150 4670K i5 4th Generation

RAM(OS): G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) 1866 MHz DDR3 DIMM or suggest any other? Which one is good, Single or Dual Stick?

HDD: WD Blue WD10EZEX 1 TB Internal Hard Driveda.

Another question, is all above parts compatible and is the motherboard good for this kind of build? My Budget is below $800

Thank you.

dual stick is better as you can go dual channel. your HDD is slow. you have no GPU.

you suggest and we'll say whether thats ok. what SR-71 has suggested is ok, but the HDD is one of the budget slower ones.

Hi Tom's Hardware,

As per my little research on sites, i had changed my configration slightly

Cabinet Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 Combat Mid Tower Cabinet

PSU: Corsair CMPSU-GS600W 600 Watts PSU

Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme6 Motherboard

CPU: Intel 3.4 GHz LGA1150 4670K i5 4th Generation

RAM(OS): Corsair Vengeance Pro Series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1866 MHZ (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory CMY8GX3M2A1866C9

HDD: WD Blue WD10EZEX 1 TB Internal Hard Driveda (or) WD 1 TB Black Desktop Internal Hard Drive (WD1002FAEX). Which one is good? because im not using SSD and Graphic Card Right now.

Please suggest all above parts compatible and is the motherboard good for this kind of build?
