Some New Hardware

Hello all,

I'm working on building a new rig. Or atleast upgrading some of my hardware. I'm trying to stay under $650. Don't need monitor, OS, PSU, case, K+M. I'm mostly going to use it for gaming, highest settings I can get with the hardware under the budget. Will it all work together? and with a 650 Power Supply? Opinions:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

Mobo: MSI P67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6GB/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard


GPU: XFX HD-687A-ZNFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 (

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0GB/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory (

Thanks in Advance,
