More about good gaming
  1. Yes it is a good upper mid range build. Not sure what CM PSU you are talking about, they differ much in quality.
  2. Yes. It's the cheapest build for around $500.

    Hi. What do you mean by heavy gaming? What resoliution?
    With this GPU you can max I think everything what was released till now on 1080p. I'm a little bit worried about next gen games. But with mid settings you should be ok too.

    By heavy gaming i mean gaming a lot and playing heavy games on high settings. Games like crysis 3, battlefield 3 and 4. That kind of games. Not sure about the resolution yet.
  5. What is your budget?

    1.what kind of games you want to play.
    2.what will be your resolution and how many monitors your going to use and is it normal naked eye gaming or 3D glasses gaming.
    3.how much your going to pay for this rig.
    4.DO NOT BUY!!!!! a cooler master PSU at all.
    5.Buy PSU of Corsair.
    6.This will not consume more then 400 watts so buy 500-600 watt 80 plus Corsair PSU (Power supply Unit) instead of a Cooler master PSU.no duobte Cooler master is making very fine casings and cooling solution but in field of PSUs NO....they are not even good.
  7. When you look at the build a few points to look for:

    1. Does the mobo support 6gb SATA
    2. Does the board have all the features I need for my CPU (usb 3.0)
    3. Does it support the memory speed and voltage I chose
    4. Look for memory timings on RAM and buy in dual channel
    6. Look for good deals and rebates on products with decent reviews and lots of reviews (a few good reviews means nothing)

    Here is what I thought of with your build and a little more to it:

    CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($117.97 @ SuperBiiz)
    Motherboard: MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($57.99 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($62.99 @ NCIX US)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.98 @ Outlet PC)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card ($149.99 @ Newegg)
    Case: Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($44.99 @ Newegg)
    Power Supply: Corsair Builder 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($31.00 @ Newegg)
    Total: $508.91

    Also, I don't know about the case you chose, but the one on here has a combo deal, and I personally own one. It's very clean looking and works great.

    So 1171 USD

    You can do so much better than the parts you posted lol.

    Since parts are more expensive in Europe, I'd estimate its about $1000 USD

    Gaming alot is not heavy gaming mate ...heavy means core hungry gaming. heavy game is a game which is using your GPU,CPU and RAM at heights.
    games like BF-3,4 of high settings ....!!! 3 will be but not 4 crisis 3 normal settings if your resolution is not more then 1366x766 at 60Hz. you can play Call of duty games at high settings on this but Call of duty ghost is not tested yet of GTX 660 2 GB.

    Agreed but mate parts are way more costly in Europe then USA coz VAT(Value added Tex) is killing gamers in Europe.
    consider it 900 USD. not more then that

    Woho.....you can do much much better in this 850 thing then that your buying for gaming.
  14. Redid it because you are working with Euro:

    CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor (£84.65 @ Amazon UK)
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler (£23.98 @ Scan.co.uk)
    Motherboard: MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard (£41.71 @ Scan.co.uk)
    Memory: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£39.15 @ Amazon UK)
    Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (£73.99 @ Amazon UK)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£41.99 @ Aria PC)
    Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card (£198.74 @ Ebuyer)

    Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply (£55.68 @ Dabs)
    Total: £604.91

    Added SSD for OS and multiplayer games for fast loads.

    Unless you want like a really hardcore set up, this will play most games on high 1080p with room to overclock. I don't see a real need to blow a full 1000 USD or 850 Euro on a PC that has parts that will be worth 1/2 that in a year or two.

    If we cut the price of PSU and buy a 600watts one and improve CPU to i5 4670K and removing SSD and improving from ASrock to ASUS and from GT 780 to Radeon 7950 3 GB ...will it be better or not? advise.
    coz system is using 400Watts top. and radeon is from Gigabyte instead of EVGA.

    How about a case for 1/2 price? Who spends $100 on a Mid Tower Case?

    CPU as per: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106-4.html

    GPU as per: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-4.html


    I'd sacrifice ssd over a GPU. No sense having a beast CPU with a mid range GPU.

    If we cut the price of PSU and buy a 600watts one and improve CPU to i5 4670K and removing SSD and improving from ASrock to ASUS and from GT 780 to Radeon 7950 3 GB ...will it be better or not? advise.
    coz system is using 400Watts top. and radeon is from Gigabyte instead of EVGA.

    How about a case for 1/2 price? Who spends $100 on a Mid Tower Case?

    Totally agreed ...and what is point of an SSD here...SSD gives data transfer equals to 10000 rpm and what is reason of 3000 rmp more.when your data provider is fast but your data handlers are not capable to handle it well?????????????? and Storm scout has better spacing even its a mid tower and very will ventilated that's why i suggested that.:D
