Processor Intel Core i5 - 2400 em = GOOD
Cooling system 2440Cooler Master = DONT KNOW WHAT THIS IS BUT YOU WANT A COOLER MASTER 212 EVO
Motherboard ASUS P8H67M LE (B3) = OK, Z68 board would be better
Memory 8GB DDR3 1333MHz Corsair = GOOD
Hard Disk 1Tb SATA-III Seagate Barracuda = GOOD
video card GeForce GTX560 Zotac PCI-E 1024Mb = GOOD
Power supply unit 550W AeroSool the VP-550 = NOT GOOD BUY A 500 to 600w UNIT FROM CORSAIR or XFX

I said it was GOOD.

ok.. you mean i need to change the brand for power supply? 550 watts is quit enough right?
February 15, 2012 8:30:25 PM

yes 550w is enough but you need a better brand like corsair or xfx.

That card is decent, few more bucks you can get a 6870 which would probably out perform that version of the 560.

That's harsh language. How about the Ti version is much better if you want to game. vrumor, from your sig, I can see that you have a 7970 and that's amazing but hasnol is trying to put together a mid range budget gamer. Let's remember to help those that can't plunk down oodles of $$$ for 7970's.

If he can push to a 560ti then do it but the 560 is not garbage for a mid range gaming pc.

how about hd 6870? is it better than gtx 560?
February 16, 2012 11:17:22 AM

hasnol: Toms has a great chart area that compares video cards. Here's the link for the comparison of a 6870 to a 560gtx. They appear to be pretty close.

BTW, the 560gtx is the first card eventhough it lists something about Walmart. How much $$ do you have to put toward the video card?

Sorry just trying to inject some honesty. Let me re-phrase, in the same price range of that 560 you can get a better card.
