Is This Computer Build any good?

I was poking around for a build sitte and i came across this. I hear building pc's is cheaper and better quality. I wanted to know if this is any good for games like black ops 2, minecraft, ghosts, mw3, and (if possible battlefield 4)

Link to my build.

:) tell me if anything can be improved.

  1. A few things to note.


    The GPU is a bit weak for an i5 like that.

    You would be better off getting an i5 4430, B85 motherboard and a better GPU. THis is GREATLY improve gaming performance.

    Also, get 2x4gb RAM not a single stick.
  2. The exchange rate is different. Prices really aren't any different.

    The 750TI is WORSE than the 7870 OP is looking at. Not recommended.

    That motherboard you linked is a good option for less than OP's original option.

    Still, he should be getting a locked i5 and a non-overclocking board and a better GPU.
  3. the gpu is temporary :D
    i cant live with a radeon card, im getting a GTX 770 4gb SC ACX after a few weeks.
  4. Get the 2gb one if you are only playing at 1080p.
  5. i want the 4gb one so i can get more fps
  6. Well, you won't get more FPS with it. Sorry, that isn't really how it works.
  7. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  8. i feel stoopid xD
  9. soo then how bout this new build. I am going to overclock.

  10. Get a Z97 motherboard.

    Get 1.5v RAM

    Get a better PSU. 550w XFX is what I would recommend.

    This build costs the same amount and will game SIGNIFICANTLY better. The GPU is MUCH stronger than a 770. This build has proper voltage RAM.
  12. Just a few edits. How does this look? I'm trying to get as much parts from 1 place as I can.

  14. so like one that doesnt look look like the original design released by amd?
