Hi! this is my first post and i am making to ask about my very first computer build. i know very little about computers and have been getting a lot of my information from newegg's video tutorials on how to make your own computer and several articles online.
Long story short, i have put together this build that i have thoroughly enjoyed selecting. I want to know what i can expect to get from this build in terms of say gaming at max settings and the framerates i would have. Games i would be interested in would be BF3 Crysis and basically the other high end games pushing gaming to their limits. thanks guys and if u have any suggestions i would love to hear them as this is my first build and i am humble enough to know i probably have done something wrong.
Case: corsair obsidian series 650D
Monitor: Asus Vs series vs228H-P black 21.5" 5ms HDMI LED backlight widescreen LCD
Storage:500gb sata 3 western digital internal hdd
Video card:sapphire 100355L Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit
Power supply: rose will capstone-650watt
Keyboard and mouse wireless combo with palm rest
Ram: 2 corsair vengeance 8gb for 16gb total (one of the 8gb comes free with motherboard) i think this is too much ram but it cost 50 bucks for both sticks with the combo.
Motherboard: ASRock z77 extreme 6
CPU: intel i5 3570k ivy bridge (3.4Ghz)
Add-ons: cooler master hyper 212 Evo heatsink fan.
Artic silver 5 thermal compound (for the heatsink to CPU connection)
Hdmi cable for the monitor.
Total price: 1,230.87
this is pretty much my budget ( approx. 1,200 dollars)
P.S. i dont know anything about overclocking but i am about to research it and probably attempt to do so. Any tips for that and will this rig be able to overclock effectively.
all products will be purchased from newegg. except for a gaming headset from turtlebeach
