PC build, Good or bad?

Processor:Intel Core i5-3570 = £129.60


RAM: kingston 8gb ram 2x4gb ddr3 blue : £62


Graphics card : EVGA GeForce GTX 660: £142


Windows 7 professional: Already have


HardDrive: Seagate ST1000DM003 3.5 inch **1TB** Barracuda Hard Drive: £44

Motherboard = Not decided

DiskDrive - Already have

Case: CiT Black widow

PSU:Corsair Gaming Series 2013 : £27

Is this a good pc build SO FAR?

I expect to play Bf4 (mostly) and maybe modded skyrim on about Medium or high settings at 50+ fps? My budget is £400- if this is not capable, please provide help for some more parts I could use?
Thank you ^.^

    You probably want to go with a cheaper CPU and a better GPU if you want to play those games at high settings. An fx-6300 and an am3+ motherboard will give you money to get a better GPU like a gtx760 or hd7950.

    Can you recommend any good cheaper CPUs?
  3. The fx6300 is what you want.
  4. agreed fx-6300 and a 7870 or 7950 card will do great

    Ah, thanks. if I get a better graphics card, w/ that processor will this be able to run BF4 med - high?
  6. Yes, with a proper gPU, the 6300 can easily run bf4 at high settings.
