Is This Build Any Good? (Budget Gaming)

Hi all,

Trying to build a budget gaming PC which will cope with new games like BF3 etc,

What do you reckon to the following, its all built but just need some advice before I go and buy a 560Ti?

- MSI G41M-P28 Motherboard
- E6600 Wolfdale 3.06Ghz (Overclocked @ 3.81Ghz)
- 8GB DDR3
- nVidia GTX 560Ti

    Why an E6600? That is a pretty slow processor.
    There also isn't an upgrade path going with the E6600.

    How about a lower end LGA 1155 Socket processor?
  3. if u have already brought ur cpu and just looking for gpu gtx 560ti will be a safe bet but what about ur psu ..tell which psu u are using ,its the most important one before choosing ur gpu..core2duo is still a capable gaming processor u can stay with that..if ur res is 1600x900p go for gtx 560 if ur res is 1080p go for gtx 560ti..
