I've been looking to build a Computer for a little time now just mainly to play games like Black Ops, Black Ops II, Arkham City, maybe a little Crysis, and League of Legends. I was just wondering would all these components work good together and get around 50-60 frames on most games (considering anti-analising is unchecked)? Thanks, appreciate any and all help. :bounce: 

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz LGA 1155 Quad-Core Processor
GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H-MVP LGA 1155 Z77 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 2GB 192-bit SLI Video Card
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
Seagate Barracude ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0GB/s 3.5"
COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus v2.3 Active PFC Power Supply 700W
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1

if you want your pc for gaming i would recommend to buy a better GPU.
an AMD 7850 would do.

For a gaming PC you are spending to much on the CPU compared to the GPU. As stated above a 7850 is very good value at the moment and if you need to cut the budget an i3 will go well with it. Cooler master make very good coolers but not the best PSUs a 500W by Antec or Corsair would be better.

I've heard a few sketchy things about AMD Drivers, mostley overtime issues, and I have some expierence with NVIDIA's, not much though. So I think im gonna stick to NVIDIA for the time, I also have the i3 in my Store-Bought computer. So I want to move up, and not stay the same. So is there anything like a GeForce GTX 550 2GB Ti, or something better that would be more beneficial to my build? Also, thanks for the import on the Power Supply I really appreciate it.

Right now nvidia really doesn't have anything worthwhile below the $300 price point. The 550Ti is a rather poor gaming GPU. If you must stick with nvidia, and you have to buy right now, try getting a GTX 560 or 560Ti. The 560Ti costs the same as the 7850 though and is slower than the 7850, so it really doesn't make sense to get one unless you really hate AMD, or you really want or need an nvidia exclusive feature like PhysX or CUDA acceleration.

Rumour has it that nvidia will have some midrange cards coming out next week, namely the GTX 650 and 660. Depending on how they are priced at launch they may make nvidia competitive within your budget. You may want to wait until September 12th, or 13th, and see if nvidia does launch new cards. If they do you might be able to get a better deal if you are dead set on nvidia.

Yeah, I dont want to spend over $250-$300 on a Graphics Card, so if NIVIDA has anything good in the next week I'll step on it, if not I'll just get a 550Ti or a 560Ti I guess.

Don't get the 550Ti it really is not a good card for the money, the 560Ti is much better but as stated not as good as a 7850 and has a similar price.

Alright, I think im starting to understand this all. So what card (Preferably NVIDIA) would be better than the 550 Ti for less that $250-$300?

Right now the only decent cards from nvidia for under $250 are the GTX 560Ti and the GTX 560, with maybe one or two GTX 570 models hovering a bit below $250. These are cards from the last generation that mostly have not been discounted, so they aren't the greatest deal. Between $250 and $300 there is the 560Ti 448, which performs somewhat similarly to the Radeon HD 7850 that is available for about $50 cheaper. It looks like the GTX 570 is being discounted a bit in reaction to the release of the 660Ti, those seem to be ranging between $240 and $260, with some of the higher end models still up at $300.

In order from fastest to slowest, the cards I listed go GTX 570 > GTX 560Ti 448 > GTX 560Ti > GTX 560, I know, confusing, Nvidia just loves the number 560 for some reason.

Ok, its all coming to me now. Now one of my friends recommended getting a PCI Card Graphics Card Cooler. Would this have any real impact? Also, as of now Im most likely going to go wth the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB 256-bit Sli Ready Card. So should I get a Graphics Card Cooler or not (I plan on having a total of 6 120mm fans in the case as it is plus the additional one on my graphics card, and another one on my CPU Heatsink.

You don't need a PCI slot cooler. The video cards cooler, combined with your case fans should be sufficient to cool the card. PCI slot coolers are meant more for enhancing cooling on passively cooled low end video cards (the ones with no fans at all). Really, you would get more cooling performance by increasing the fan speed on the graphics card than you would with a PCI Graphics Card Cooler. I'd say, just build the system, test it out, and only worry about temps on the graphics card if they get really high, say 85+ degrees celsius.

All right, sounds good. I just want to thank you alot sir. If it wasnt for you I would still be stuck in the dust! So definitely alot of thanks towards that. :wahoo: 

But besides the Graphics Card, now how do all my other components look together?

I would recommend a different power supply than what you have there. The CoolerMaster Extreme Power Plus series isn't of very good quality. If you don't intend to grab a second 560Ti for SLI later on, your system will run fine on a good quality 550 Watt Power supply. Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, and XFX are among the better brands for power supplies. Go for a 750 Watt unit if you do want to get a second 560Ti later on for SLI.

Aside from the power supply, everything else looks good.

I was gonna get the one CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V Power Supply. Would that work good?

That's fine for a single 560Ti. As long as you don't intend to get a second 560Ti later for SLI, that PSU will be okay for your system.
