Is everything compatible ?

this is the PC for myself that i have chosen. is everything compatible, and is this a good budget build?

Intel Core i3 2100 Dual Core 3.1 Ghz

KINGSTON DDR3 2GB-1333

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450

ASUS P8H67-M LE

SEAGATE 500GB 3.5" HDD 16MB Cache

Liteon DVD burner

Antec BP430 430Watts CONTINUOUS POWER PSU

Case doesn't matter

p.s. i have streched th budget to its limit and can't spend a penny more. and don't suggest me any AMD builds coz they r not available here.

and also is this pc good enough to run all the latest games on max settings with 1440 * 900 resolution? btw i have a samsung series 4 32" lcd tv 1366 x 768 which i plan to use as a monitor . would this make a difference?

how long can this pc support games and when would i need to upgrade it and any future suggestions for upgrade?

  1. A few mistakes, instead of that motherboard get a cheaper H61 motherboard for 65-80 dollars.

    Don't cheap out with 2GB of RAM, get a 4GB kit for 40 dollars.

    Instead of the GTS 450 get an HD 6850, it will be MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCH faster than the GTS 450 and only costs $165.

    Instead of that had drive, get a 250GB or 320GB SATA hard drive to save money.

    Get an Antec Earth watts PC cuz its cheaper.

    DO you have an OS- windows??
  2. about OS : i can chose any! what do u recomend?
    btw i cut 2 gb of RAM from my original idea of four just to get h67 chipset mobo. coz ofcourse i can upgrade a couple gb more RAM just the nxt month whereas the performance boost (is there any?) frm h67 might still be there

    plus i have th gpu on hold now . i might had to go with dual core processor if i buy a gpu now. so i decided to buy a sandy bridge and and settle for a gpu 4-5 months frm now when i'll have the money
  3. Windows 7 64bit Pro or Home Ultimate edition is just a waste of $.
  4. any OS will be free for me :D

    Windows 7 Home premium- it costs $150!

    there is no h67 perf boost, and you can get up to 8gb on h61 with two gb sticks and 16gb in the future when they release 8gb sticks.

    don't download illegally!
  7. don't u worry about that :P my dad has a site license for his company so he'll buy me one at his own cost
    btw since gts 45 supports direct x11 so should i get vista or windows 7 and also 32 or 64 bit?
  8. need a little advice on psu for this system.
    is the current one ok or should have it changed?
  9. No, on TIGER DIRECT home 64bit is a cheap 100$
  10. I'm with MN96, get a antec earthwatts, like this 430: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371034&Tpk=430%20earthwatts
    It's 80+ and cheap and will have plenty of power for your rig.

    Now you're just trollin. The earthwatts is 80+, the corsair is not.

    And for graphics cards, could you show me a benchmark where a 9600GSO beats a 5670? I'm rather interested, as the 9600 is a very old card, and i'm not sure how you came to the conclusion it was better.
