Hi!

I have been searching for a new gaming computer for some time now. As mentioned in the thread title the purpose for the new computer is to stream games, preferably in 720p quality. I would also use it for frapsing and just generally playing some demanding games.

Here is the specs so if you could let me know if they are good enough I would be grateful! Bear in mind that this is a pre built system!

Specifications:

• Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz 8MB Cache (3.80GHz Max. Turbo Frequency) Quad-Core w/ HT Processor
• Official Intel Cooler
• NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 1280MB GDDR5 DirectX 11 Graphics
• 8GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte (2x4GB) 1600 (PC3-12800) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM CAS 9-9-9-24 1.5V
• 64GB Crucial m4 2.5" SATA-III Solid State Hard Drive
• 500GB 3.5" SATA III Hard Drive
• MSI Z77A-G43 Intel Z77 Socket 1155 DDR3 PCI-Express Motherboard
• 550W OCZ ZS Series 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply
• Corsair Carbide 500R White Midi Tower Chassis w/ USB3.0
• 22x DVD±RW SATA Optical ReWriter Drive

Thanks!

nice enough build but you could save a serious wad if you got all the parts and built it yourself.. sometimes you can save as much as a quater of the money and on that bild is probably enough to get you an even better gfx card (gtx 680) or even a second 570.

Z77 motherboard? You can't run the 2600k on that!

yes you cn the z77's are backward compatible, however why not use a 3770k when they come out.

Agree with13th. Ivy is ~24 days away. Slight performance increase at the same price point (from what has been revealed so far) plus improved integrated GPU if you ever need it.
