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. mercer95 July 15, 2012 10:35:15 PM 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.

That rig is more than capable of running all your games at 1920x1080, if not higher. jussman66 July 16, 2012 2:31:08 AM What FPS would I get on games like Skyrim,BF3,MW3,Black Ops and Portal 2? jaguarskx July 16, 2012 4:21:57 AM 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. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_6... arslan94 July 16, 2012 6:25:48 AM Simply A DECENT GAMING PC ............ !!
