Hi, I just oredered a new gaming rig and was looking for some feedback on my choices of hardware.
Key components are:

Case: Cooler Master Elite 430

PSU: 650 W (don't remember make and model think it was Corsair)

Mobo: MSI P67A-GD65 B3

CPU: i5-2500K

Ram: Corsair Vengeance™ DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9


HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB 7200RPM

Monitor: BenQ 24" LCD G2420HD

I'm not building it myself, the site I ordered it from will build it for me.

Comparing prices would not make any sense since I live in Norway and prices here are really, REALLY high, but I think I got a decent deal.

I will be gaming on 1920x1080 and would like to run Crysis and Crysis Warhead at Very high/Enthusiast with at least 4xAA, will this be possible, and what do you think of the build generally as a gaming rig?

Any feedback is much appreciated.

Well, you won't be running Crysis at 60fps maxed, but maybe high/very high with some modifications. And you did very well! A little light on the GPU, but a balanced build overall.

Thank you for your feedback, I am now a happy camper:) 

As for the GPU it was the best card out of the few I could choose from, and I was already stepping over my budget :(  Would have liked to get a 570 but sadly it was not possible.
