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.

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.

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.

Get the 2gb one if you are only playing at 1080p.

Well, you won't get more FPS with it. Sorry, that isn't really how it works.

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.

Looks fine. I would recommend a non-reference style GPU though for the 290.
