Will this be good enough for gaming?

I’m hoping to build a PC.I have selected components ,but could you check it over?

1.CPU - Intel Core i3 3220 3.3 GHz (3rd Generation)

2.Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H (USB 3.0 + PCI-E 3.0 + 4 x DDR 3 1600)

3.Graphic Card - 1GB AMD Radeon HD 6850

4.Memory - Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) XMS3 1600 Mhz CL9 DDR3 kit

5.Hard Disk Drive – WD Caviar Blue 500GB 7200RPM SATA 6GBPS

6.Power Supply - Corsair CX500 v2 500W 80+

*I will be mostly using this system for gaming @ 1366x768 resolution.Will this system be enough for games like Need For Speed Most Wanted (2012),Assassin’s Creed 3,GTA V,Splinter Cell:Blacklist and more future games at reasonable settings (Medium-High)?

  1. That looks OK to me. I would try to stretch to the 7850 as it is more recent, but the 6850 should do a fine job of the games you listed.
  2. Thanks for the reply,
    But unfortunately i won't be able to go for the hd 7850.Are you sure that hd 6850 would be good enough to play especially GTA V on medium-high settings?
  3. I could play borderlands 2 on full spec with my old core 2 8400 4gb ram and my 6850...
    i could run dirt 2 on almost full setting 1080p you should be fine.

    Get some more ram, its cheap!

    The OP should be on a 32 bit OS, thus the 4GB ram only, tough it might be enough.

    The HD 6850 will let you to play those games at high settings, as it has good 1920x1200 performance in many games.

  5. 4GB is plenty for the vast majority of people out there. Very few programs will use anywhere near that amount and games definitely won't.

    For pure gaming, I'd drop to a Pentium G600 or G800 series to free up a little more money for the graphics card. I'd much, much rather have a G640 with a 7850 vs a i3-3220 and 6850.

    If you are in the US, newegg has an XFX 7850 1GB for $141 after rebate through the weekend.

  7. Thanks for the replies.I've decided to go for the hd 6850 since i will be using a 19" monitor that goes only upto 1366x768 resolution.If hd 6850 is capable of handling a high resolution like 1920x1200 ,it probably would be good enough for me to play games at high settings.
