More about this good gaming build
  1. Forgot to add it has a 120mm case fan with a 550 liquid coolent system
  2. -Switch out the i5 655K with the i5 750, it adds another 2 physical cores, much better gaming performance, and you don't need the unlocked multiplier to get it to 4GHz easily.

    -What's the PSU? it'd be good to know, seeing as it's the thing that will run your computer, and you need the best one you can get for the price.

    -I'd go with this set of memory modules, or this one if you like blue. They have an extra boost in MHz and will give some added performance for a small price bump.

    Other than that, it looks good, you don't really need anything better than the 5770 unless your resolution is 1080p or greater.
  3. The PSU is 600 watt
  4. all this totals around $900
  5. $898AR
  6. What's your budget, that would be good to know so we don't go suggesting GTX 480's or 5970's and stuff.
  7. I just want this computer to equal $900 I don't want no $1,000+ computer

    I just want a hardy computer to play future games but i don't plan on playing them on the highest settings. I'll mainly use it to watch videos and play world of warcraft.
  9. Then you'd probably be good sticking with the 5770. But like I said earlier, go with the i5 750, it will smash the i5 655K and it's cheaper. Put the difference towards a good HSF so you can overclock it.
