Taking it from the top. i3 2120 is not worth the money over a 2100. Z68 board is useless with an un-overclockable i3. That PSU cant run that GPU (not for long, anyway). 32bit OS wont work with 4GB of RAM. Check my sig for a better idea of what to get. | Report abuse IH8U August 22, 2011 9:32:16 AM +1 to Zero. How much are you looking to spend on the build anyway? What parts do you already have? What resolution are you going to play at? (more than 1024/768? if so a cheaper alternative may be AMD). | Report abuse geekapproved Gaming Expert August 22, 2011 2:18:39 PM Great choices. IMO the i3-2120 is certainly worth the money over the 2100 if your running more than 1 high end video card, but your not. Z68 gives you Ivy Bridge upgrade ability, future overclocking ability, and future sli/xfire ability, so might as well stick with the 2100. The psu is cheap, but it'll work. Looks like a good build. | Report abuse 008Rohit August 22, 2011 2:50:36 PM IMO, Buying a Z68 isn't a waste of money, as he can upgrade to a i5/i7 or even a Ivy Bridge processor in the future. Get the Corsair CX430 or 500. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Low budget rig for gaming> Related ressources: ForumVery Low Budget Gaming Rig Suggestions?
