Building a new gaming pc

Alright so I would love some input on my list right now, here we go:

Video Card: SAPPHIRE 100315L Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Processor: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K

Tower: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan

Power Supply: Antec EarthWatts EA-650 GREEN 650W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-4GBXM

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Motherboard: MSI P67A-C43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Basically I found this combo on newegg, I'm wondering if everything looks good and if the video card is compatible.

All of this comes up to a total of $684.49.

  1. ^ That is a good combo, but would have been better if it had a x8x8 Crossfire motherboard though,...
  2. Looks good...what's your resolution, and do you plan on o/c ?
  3. On the one hand, you'll race through any productivity apps, and run older games maxed. OTOH, depending on your resolution, the newest, most demanding games may require lowered settings. Unfortunately, you don't have the option of adding a second card later for Crossfire. Depending on the games you [want to] play, this means you may want to get a better card, like a HD6950, or get a board that supports x8,x8 Crossfire; although I realize that hoses the combo. You may be able to find other good deals.

    I have two monitors one at 1680x1050 and the other at 1600x900, I use the 1680 for games though. I am not planing on o/c
  5. Well, a HD6850 would do well for 1680x1050.
