Will this system max out most games?

My father and I are going to build this setup, we haven't bought the parts yet, I'm wondering if you guys could tell me if this setup will. I am also not sure if a the power supply is sufficient enough for the parts.

Wifi card: Linksys WMP600N Wireless Adapter with Dual-Band IEEE 802.11a/b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft 2.0 PCI WEP, WPA & WPA2 Personal, WPA & WPA2 Enterprise

Graphics card: ASUS ENGTX560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (might buy 2 for SLi later on)

Ram: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K

CPU cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7

SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

case:COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced Blue Edition RC-932-KKN3-GP ATX Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0, Black Interior and Four Blue LED Fans-1x 230mm front 1x 230mm top 1x 230mm side and 1x 140mm rear

More about will system games
  1. No one can answer your question because we dont know the resolution of your monitor .

    If its 1080p the answer is it will run all games but not on highest quality settings . On a smaller , lower resolution screen it will be better

    It will run fine on a 450 watt psu
  2. Are you sure you want 560 ? and not 560 Ti
    I mean your pouring a lot of money into mobo and spending less for GPU
    and there are cheaper cases with same efficiency
    also swap PSu for something better
    and like Outlander said we can't tell unless u list ur resolution
    maybe better option is to fill out form at the top of the forum and list ur proposed build below
  3. Ok, this is my first time on the forums so I don't know where the forms are. What do you mean by a better PSu? Should I just use a 450 watt instead or something else? I changed the Graphics card to the Ti.
  4. no don't use 450W ..
    form is on top of the forum .. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice
  5. Go for the 560 Ti. Much better than the 560.

    If you're buying the Gen3 motherboard, then you'll have to wait for the Ivybridge processors to release because the Sandybridge processors dont support PCIe 3.0 on the Gen3 motherboards.

    And get atleast 600-650W of power. Corsair or Seasonic are some good ones.

    What games will you be playing ?
  6. If you are using the 560 ti then its recommended you use a minimum 500 watt power supply .
  7. Get the low profile version of that RAM .... that stuff will hit the 212.

    Speaking of the 212, another $20 will get ya the Hyper 612 PWM and another 5-7C of cooling.

    Ya want the Ti version, not the plain 560.....huge performance difference.

    Son No. 3 has two of em .... he's upstairs playing BF3 right now.

    I'd use an 850 watter for twin 560 Ti's and overclocking the CPU / GPU ..... and while CM makes great cases, the PSU's are not on may enthusiasts build list. I'd suggest as an alternative some of the following which will save ya some money to put on upgraded GFX cards and to my mind are better case/ PSU combos:

    $135 Antec DF-85


    $135 Antec 1200 V3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129100

    Both of these fit the CP-850 ($115) .... you are not going to find a better PSU (10.0 jonnyguru performance rating)



    It is completely unmatched by any ATX unit on the market I can think of. You'd have to spend twice as much as this thing costs to find the next best thing, performance wise.

    The pairing of the case / PSU results in extremely quiet and cool system.

    The [pairing with the compatible Antec cases] is an obviously unfair advantage for the CP-850... but what of it? Antec has used an integrated systems approach for its CP-850 and its best cases, and if that approach is an advantage over all other case/PSU combinations, then, all the more power to Antec!

    If ya don't like the Antec cases, another alternative is the Corsair 500R ($130)......with the 500R or the HAF's. I'd use the HX850 ($150) if ya want a 10.0 performance rating from jonnyguru .... the XFX Core Edition gets a 9.5 rating for $90.

    See if ya can fit a Chronos Deluxe into ya budget....it's Tier 3 unit (Vertex 3 is Tier 6)
  8. Thanks for the responses! I'll probably be playing Skyrim (hoperfully on max settings and SWTOR mainly for now.
  9. You will get around 30-35 fps in Skyrim. But that's in 1080 HD. What resolution will yuo be playing at ?
  10. most likely 1080 HD we're using a TV that i Believe is around 25in.
  11. You'll be able to max out most of today's games, but you wont get extremely high frame rates. But it'll do just fine with some of the settings toned down.

    But if you're a stickler for high fps you have an extra 80-100$ to throw, you can go for the GTX 570 instead. Killer performance. just a suggestion.

    More info :

  12. Wouldn't 6970 be better choice. It'll kill 570.

    Eghrm.. AGREE!
  14. No offense, but looking at the reviews & from my personal experience (however limited it may be), the 570 has a slight edge over the 6970.

    But then again doesnt it depend on which game you're playing ? Some games are better with AMD and others on nVidia. Cant really judge. Besides, whichever card is better, the difference in performance between the two isnt that noticeable or huge. May be a variation of 6-7 frames per sec.

    So, the 6970 may be better, but it sure as hell doesnt "kill" the 570. :)
  15. Sure it does
