Will my PC specs bottleneck/work well?

I am planning to build a gaming PC but I am worried about how will it work.

I planned to buy this given specs and I considered it to my budget.

CPU: Intel Core i5 3330 Quad 3.0ghz
GPU: Radeon HD7770 Asus Ghz Edition
MOBO: ASUS P8Z77-V LK Intel Z77
RAM: Kingston HYPER-X 4GB DDR3 1600
HDD: Seagate 1TB 3.5 SATA
CD/DVD: ASUS DRW-24B5ST 24x SATA
UPS/AVR: Huntkey 600W PSU

with spec given does my PC work well, will bottleneck. imbalanced or whatever?

Another question will these hardwares fit with aerocool Strike-X One Casing?

Thanks in Advance.

  1. Don't expect much out of that gpu though, its pretty low end. What resolution? An R7 265, 270 or 270X would be much better for gaming at 1080p.

    But it can still work on any game like for ex. GTA 5, Skyrim, saints row 4 etc.?
  3. what resolution? It will work but for 30 fps you're looking at most likely low/medium settings at best.

    They are fine, don't worry, your cpu can handle even stronger GPU. No bottlenecks there. So your specs are perfect and good choice, enjoy building and have fun :) And it will fit your Strike X one as I have it and it super cool (Aerocool) :)

    Can i ask one more question? What cooling sytem do you have? is it an air cooling? how many fans installed in your PC? thanks

    Anyway, thank you for your answer i'll forward to buy a high end GPU when i have the coins ;)

    I use Xigmatek dark knight nighthawk Black air cpu cooler (very awesome, keeps system at 24c idle, 46c max at load- when playing games) and I have 4 - 120 mm red fans, but I would say 2 would be enough as it just makes a bit more noise but no changes temp wise, at least for my system and environment. For your specs I would stay with those 2 factory fans and that would be enough (as your cpu is not overclockable - your mobo supports overclock, but need k series cpu) you don't need massive air flow in your case temp wise again. Have fun
