New Gaming Rig for $500

Hi

I'm building my second rig and need to know if these parts are all compatible with each other, and if this computer can play upcoming games on high settings! I''m trying to buy these parts asap because some of these promotions are ending soon. I will not be overclocking. Thank you in advance! :sol:

    It is all compatible but the PSU is not the best (basic CM's are not very good).
    Have you tried building around LGA 1155 I3 2100? More performance!

    No I haven't should I get another power supply, or will this still work, you see the only reason I choose this was because of this price.
  3. Just an Idea comes with a better PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.660856 add GPU and wifi.
    Here is a better PSU for little more after MIR http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371031
  4. That's a nice deal; add a GPU and you have a decent gamer.

    Anyway yeah that CM PSU is junk. A quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch) and some level of 80+ certification for efficiency.

    I appreciate your advice! I will get the antec PSU.
  6. i personally would go with the cheapest intel 2100 system i could find, like this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.719539
    then throw on the best video card i could with the remaining money. you could get this system and a radeon 6870 or a gtx 560 and still be under $500 but if you can spare $30 more the 6950 or the 560 ti would be worth it in my opinion.
    my only concern with this system is that the broadway com corp power supply has questionable reviews. but i have a system with one in it i gave to my brother a year ago and it still works.

  8. Would this be a big upgrade over a Q6600 (got it Jan 08) but here its still viable? Been out of the component game for some time..
