Hi,

I am going to buy a new pc (I choose all of these and I am 13 year old :p  ) and i want it for gaming. I want to play all new games at the maximum possible.

Are these good for gaming rig?

Case: Coolermaster Silencio RC-550
Mobo: MSI socket 1155 P67A-GD55
PSU: Corsair GS700
GPU: RADEON HD6870 (maybe crossfire)
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500
Memory: Kingston VALUE 4GB DDR3 Non ECC CL9 1333MHz

I have a screen 1680x1050.

Are these good? :D

Yes 6870 will run 1650x1080 smoothly at high settings by itself. You should invest into a better monitor before* adding on another 6870 for crossfire.

Thanks for answering. I am planning to crossfire, maybe next year, not now. But, if I have enough money, i will buy a better monitor. Maybe a 1920x1200

or a 1920x1080. which is better? does 145€ more euros worth?
1920x1080=120€
1920x1200=about 265€

I personally would not bother with crossfiring untill you have a 1920x1200 that is full HD and has a response rate equal to or lower than 5ms (personal preference). Of course if you are planning on crossfiring in the future remember that your PSU possibly may not be powerfull enough to handle x2 Radeon HD6870's. Other than that you're all good :)

If you're going for 24" or more I would go for the 1920x1200 otherwise the 1920x1080 will work just fine. There will be black bars on the top/bottom when you play movies or do other productivity applications for the 1920x1200.

I am planning to crossfire in the future. I dont know when. Actually i changed it a bit. I will go for a GS800 800w to be sure. I will see in the future if I go with a higher resolution. I like my current.

Then I will go for a 1920x1080 if i change monitor. i am not sure if I want to. My current resolution is good, I think.
