What do you think of this gaming pc (6 core - 2.8, 4gb, 500gb, gtx 470)?

Of a website where you chose pc and you customize it to meet your needs:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T (2.8ghz) - 9mb cache/ with 6 cores

Motherboard: Asus M4A87TD USB3

Memory: 2x2GB Corsair DDR3 1600mhz (4gb total)

Hard Drives: 500GB S-ATAII 3.0Gb/s

Optical Drive: 22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA

Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 1,280MB -(heard some good reviews about)

Sound card: Onboard 7.1 Audio

Case: Xigmatek Asgard

PSU: 500W Xigmatek

Warranty: 3 Year Warranty

OS: Customized to not have one as i have a spare disk at home.

Price = £584
so what do you think of the pc?
and WILL all of the parts work together?? - seeing as i changed some parts around such as the power Supply.

Also will it be good for games and around about what fps would i get on the highest graphics options for crisis (a high demanding game)with the pc and on (1600x1050)??


Many Thanks, Bill!


And i'm not changing my processor (as i say why here if you want to read):

(I don't want to a intel build due to it being expensiver + not much better for less cores + i just generaly prefer amd!)

(I'm also not gettig a cpu with less than 6 cores due to it being around the same price + it would give me an advantage in the future (eg if i decide to make movies and games :) )

More about what gaming core 500gb
  1. GTX 470 at suggested resolution should be able to play all games in high settings smoothly. here are benchmarks for GTX 470 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/160

    You should get an Antec 550w PSU or any other 550w in Corsair, OCZ, Seasonic etc. 550w is recommended for a GTX 470.
  2. Hmm in Europe/UK i would rather hit reasonably priced BeQuiet PSUs 80+ models rather than stuff from Xigmatek (PSU)
