The GPU is rubbish. You won't playing anything on that even at 720p. Same with the dual core. You want at least a quad core. I'd change to a 960T and a 7870 with a 970 mobo at least.

OK..!!
But i must mention that I am on a tighter budget..

Sorry to say but I decided to spend more and buy a Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 Intel mobo..

I want to know that is it advisable to save some bucks from a mobo and spend that on a graphics card..??

Also, do the latest games need Quad qore...coz opting for them is greatly increasing the budget..???

You are on a tight budget and you spent more on Intel? Stick with AMD and get a 7870.

he spent more on intel so he could get proper power consumption and performance from a relevant company. For most any game besides a handful that are very CPU intensive, the processor is an afterthought anyways.

If you're really tight on budget, you can hit up fleabay and try to grab a 6870/6970 for cheap. The only difference between the 5000 and 6000 series is power consumption. 7000 series is a whole new ball game but still pricey.

Honestly, it's about expectations. I'm still using a 4870 2gb and it's fine for all but the most modern games at the highest settings. If you don't need much, you simply don't need much.

Relevant company? CPU afterthought? A 960tT is sufficient and a 7870 is a good match. A 4870 is obsolete and slow.
