is this build good enough for next-gen games

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2rqch
do you think that this build good enough for games that are released next year? (includes recording)


notes:

no heatsink due to the processor having it (i think)
no OS cause my friend has windows 7 ultimate/windows 8
My family uses wireless, hence I have to include an adapter.

  1. its good, but you need a psu like a corsair cx 500
  2. yeah i totally missed that out XD
  3. Does having a pcie wifi card really make a difference? Cause if not, you could jsut save some money and buy a usb adapter for a third of the price maybe. Other than that, a psu would be a good idea :)
  4. XFX Core Edition PRO450W is recommended, since the whole system will draw 304W of power, this PSU's wattage is 408W and it's 80+ Bronze, so 80% of this PSU's usage is recommended and 80% of 408W is exactly 326,4W so you will have even more wattage.
  5. I would stay away from the AMD FM2 socket. You have far more powerful CPU options on the AM3+ socket....

    - so, AMD 4130 for a few dollars more: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-fd4130frgubox
    - and, http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-ga970aud3p

    PSU: I prefer Corsair, Antec, or Seasonic... Get a 600watt supply, so, you'll be ready of OC'ing and GPU upgrades in the future....

  6. Oh, I'd second that on USB Wifi adapter. They are cheap, seem to provide better range, and don't take up a slot in your system....
  7. I had no idea the USB ones had better range. I'll edit my build.
