Will this build work? and is it good enough to play new games at high or max settings? I'm building this computer to play sc2 and modern warfare2 and other new games..
I might upgrade cpu to i5-760 but I don't know if the difference is noticeable..

What do you think?

    that worked, but really get the HDD that i posted, don't get something that isnt good just because its in a combo

    (i know that was an example)

    but with your power supply, i would change that to a corsair/coolermaster/antec
  4. k for this system, how much watts do I need? will 600w or 650w be sufficient?
  5. OCZ power supplies are decent quality, I say keep it, just stay away from their RAM.
    600 is enough for what you want, but you should get a 700 for future upgrades.
    And definitely change to the HDD Pizza pointed out. It's the newer version. It's faster and more reliable.
  6. I would go with a HX650
  7. qmg760 said:

    thats good, just not modular.. i would get the HX650 if you could.
  8. yeah since they're about the same (disregarding the rebate) i guess i could.
    do i need to get thermal paste or something? will the fan that comes with cpu be good enough?

    if you aren't overclocking stock fan is fine
    the stock fan comes with thermal paste
  10. For half that he could stick with an OCZ 650 and spend the money elsewhere in his build. Don't get me wrong corsair is a great brand but I don't see any reason to spend it on that in a budget build.
  11. thanks guys! i'm going to order them A.S.A.P
