Building a PC, need help

Okay so Christmas is coming, and that means upgrade time for me.

I'm currently running a decent but rather aged computer and I'm in the market for a new one.

I spend most of my gaming time in Modern Warfare 2, Left 4 Dead 2, World of Warcraft, etc.

I'm far too tired to post links to all the parts right now, will do so in the morning, but I'm getting as follows:

650 Watt PSU

4GB Ram

nVidia GTX 275

Intel Core i5

Case, fans, cooling, etc.

What I'm posting for is to ask if anyone knows these parts well enough to tell me what kind of performance I can expect?

I'd like to run the games I play on maxed settings, save for AA/AF, not a big deal, and get at least 60 FPS or something around there.

Thanks in advance!

  1. With the HD5K series out anything GTS 250 and above isn't a good buy IMO for green camp for the GPU dept.
  2. Tell brand of PSU?
    Resolution at which you'll play?
    Your Budget?
  3. If you are certain that you will never put in a second video card, a good 550 watt PSU such as this one:
    Corsair 550VX
    will do nicely for the PSU.
  4. I'd be playing with a 1920x1200 resolution

    I'm not too keen on building PC's as it's been years since I've done it..

    If someone could maybe build up a Intel/nVidia gaming rig with a 850-900$ budget or something, that would be incredible :O

    Just post links to the parts obviously :P Dont need ya to actually build it. xD
