Looks decent to me. What are you expecting it to be capable of, if you mind me asking?

Looks alright.
How much did you pay for this though?

What brand is the PSU? This is the most important thing people look over.

The liquid cooler is kind of pointless.That motherboard uses a 5 year old chipset and has poor power phases so you won't want to do any overclocking.

I am looking for 1080p high settings 60fps gaming, I don't necessarily need ultra.

It doesn't say what kind of power supply it is, it just says standard 600 watt. I was wondering if that was not enough because it did say the GPU needed a minimum of 600 watts. But as for cooling, assuming I don't do overclocking, I don't need a liquid cooler?

No you have no need for anything more than the stock cooler. Do not get an aftermarket cooler if you are not going to overclock.

600w is more than enough, but the Brand is what matters. It should be half decent. Wish there was a way to find out. The PSU is the most important part of a PC.

I reckon this should be able to play on high. I dunno @ 60fps, but all you really need is 30fps+. Agree with Tiny voices on the PSU issue tho.

There is a BIG difference between 30 and 60fps.

Anyone will tell you that ultra at 30fps is WAY less enjoyable that high at 60fps.

But with a 760, this will play most all games comfortably at high at 1080p 60fps. No worries.

I don't disagree with you, just don't have any personal experience with the 760, and added my oppinion on 30fps vs 60fps. I run all games on High @ 60fps, but i'm also playing @ 5040x1050 too, 760 prolly wouldn't get me high @ 60.

No at that resolution a 760 will not get anywhere close to that but at 1080p, it is perfect for high settings at 60fps.
