What do you think of this build?

I found this combo build on newegg and I was wondering how good it would be for gaming. I need a new gaming computer for Guild Wars 2 later this year so I need one that will be able to run brand new games. I also would probably add a Hyper 212+ CPU Cooler.


Note: I don't plan to overclock.

More about what build
  1. Given what you are looking for and what is included I would hesitate from buying. It would do alright but you could do much better building yourself. Some of the potential problems I see:

    1) Unlocked card that you won't used (could save $ here)
    2) The 6850 is a decent GPU but you could do much better IMHO
    3) While the SSD is large its only SATA I. I personally would want SATA II or SATA III but that would increase your cost significantly so it depends on what you want to spend.

    Some of the good things:
    1) CM HAF cases are good
    2) Even if you don't OC the 2500K is great
    3) Seasonic PSUs are also fantastic however if you are considering SLI you might want a bit more power (depends on your GPU selection though)

    Again, for a quick no thought build it would work but with a little time invested in picking out parts I think you could do much better.
