    It looks reasonably well balanced and a fair deal for your budget.

    The one part I would change is the power supply.
    A PSU of uncertain quality is not the way to balance your budget, and Xilence does seem to be an iffy unit.

    You will pay a bit more for a quality brand, but you can then be certain of getting the full advertised power, and no damage to your pc from a failing or marginal psu.

    500w is the recommended size for a 6850.
    My short list of quality brands would include Seasonic, Antec, XFX, Corsair, and PC P&C.

    Thanks for the tip and one more question:
    Will the i5 2400 and 6850 bottleneck.
  3. There will always be a bottleneck, one will always be faster than the other, the only problem is if it is a large difference. In your case i'd say they were a nice balance.

    could you get a P motherboard or a Z motherboard as the H can't OC at all, your 2400 can OC a bit, and you are paying for the onboard GPU usage which you won't need.

    I don't much like te way we use the term "bottleneck" It implies that one slow component will reduce the performance of the other.
    What I see here is that an upgrade from the 2400 or 6850 will not bring a great deal of improvement unless they both are upgraded in concert.

    If you were to do that, your budget would be higher, hence the current reasonably balanced system

    If you were to play one game exclusively, then perhaps the balance of parts might be different.

    Well i meant to play CoD 4,MW2,MW3 and BF3 on Maximum Settings...
    And for the PSU,i picked a 500W Inter-Tech Coba NitroX Xchange 80+ Certified
