I have recently got some parts and was wondering if this setup will be good for gaming :) 


Intel core Xeon X3350 @ 3.67 Ghz (QUAD)
8GB Corsair Dominator ram
ASUS DIRECT CUII GTX 580 1.5GB Graphics card.
CPU Wattercooled
Windows 7
Asus Formula ROG Rampage Mobo

Any opinions appreciated

Xeon, arn't they for servers? You'll be better off with a i7 2600k

While you could game on that system and the processor is old (think of it as an old Intel® Core™ 2 Quad, same technology behind it) maybe a slow point for this processor. You can see the stats on this processor at

When I say title of thread I knew it would be one of two types

1. Someone trying to put a rig together on a tight budget and listing marginal spec items... In which I would help as best I could.

2. Some troll tart would trot out a list of high spec components and fish for compliments...

Guess which one I got??? :fou:

Just exactly how stupid do you think we are? Your friends just "give" you a £400/$550 graphics card.... neither they nor you appreciate it or its capabilities.... you frequent Toms Hardware... you bandy around terms like "Mobo" and make sure to tell us that its a "CPU Wattercooled" (Sic) system.... yet you have to ask??

Jezz.. :sarcastic:
