For gaming pc is bad,you picked bad gpu.For gaming gpu is main thing.You can buy I3 with r9 280x it will be100 times better than this for gaming,also 8gb is enough.Remember main component for gaming is gpu,I7 would give you 2 fps over I3

Imbalanced build. Everything about it would fit the gaming shoe except the most important component for gaming, the graphics, card.

k thanks.In truth i actually already built it and have it,just wanted to know other peoples opinions.A friend of mine helped me buy the parts from a shop owner telling him that this graphics card was for gaming.After testing it out,i could only play games like cod ghosts on low!Any tips on how to improve performance?

Also,if i were to upgrade mid next year,what bang for the buck GPU should i get for 1920x1080 resolution?Price range is about 200 to 350 maybe,as cheap as possible.Thanks.
