  1. Looks good to me. Never heard of that case, so I don't know what temps will be like, but in terms of specs, that's a fine machine.
  2. i have a very similar build and i can max bf3 with 50-80 fps, although i would get the ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II.
  3. As above - seems like a decent system to me.
  4. That's a lovely little system, in fact I'd be looking at getting a bigger monitor for it. That rig is more than capable of running all your games at 1920x1080, if not higher.
  5. What FPS would I get on games like Skyrim,BF3,MW3,Black Ops and Portal 2?
  6. See following GTX 670 review for benchmarks which uses an Intel Core i7-3770K @ 4.7 GHz in the test rig. Portal 2 uses the Source Engine which is not very demanding so frame rates should be extremely high.
  7. Simply A DECENT GAMING PC ............ !! Be Happy and Rock it !!
  8. thats simiar to mine, and its a great machine i have the same mobo and cpu
  9. That sounds good! Just make sure the case if full tower so your video card won't overheat.
  10. cool build..thumbs up!
