Is this a good gaming rig?

I just want to play games like DayZ, Skyrim and Garry's Mod without severe lag. I'd go with a better GPU, but I also wanted to save money with this build too.

Feel free to leave any suggested parts, and thanks for reading!


EDIT: Keep in mind that I already have a hard drive I was planning on using already

The power supply is overkill - you will not need no more than a decent 500w. So instead of the 750w, get a 500w and a better graphic card, a 760 or a 660ti, whatever is cheaper.

You did a great job picking out parts. The only things is that I'm personally not a fan of Raidmax cases. Also if you have any spare money I suggest putting it towards getting a better/bigger monitor.

Your CPU is way too good for your GPU. Upgrade your GPU to something better. I would suggest getting a 660 Ti instead. Also your PSU is overkill. This build only needs 400-450W to put it lightly.

Nice rig, could save a little by dropping the PSU as mentioned, might look for a deal on a 7850 GPU, prob the next step up
