Looks ok but why would you buy a i5-2320 if your using a video card??

It doesn't make sense to pay more for better integrated graphics when you have no plans to use it.

No motherboard?

which processor are u telling me to go at this price point i5 2320 is the only processor in my budget other than i3..mobo is intel dh67vr(i saw many reviews that intel boards are most stable and reliable when they are not overclocked im not going to overclock surely so im going to intel board asus boards are very costly they have features which i dont want) ..i will not change is system atleast for 4 years can the gpu be able to play all games atleast at medium res after 3 years at 1600x900

You would want the i5-2300, not the 2320. The 2320 cost's more because it has better quality integrated graphics than 2300, but yout not going to use the integrated graphics so you don't need it.

I would highly recommend the 2400 though if you can afford it, it's much faster clock speed for a few more dollars.

Yes the system will do you good for a few years at that resolution.

i5 2300 is a 2.8ghz i want atleast 3ghz processor thats the reason i chose i5 2320 and what about intel board without overclocking are they stable..im currently using this hdd seagate barracuda 7200.12 500gb is this hdd performs better than a ssd ..is 7200 rpm better than 5400 rpm

Then you want the 3.1ghz i5-2400, it's the same price (here in USA) as i5-2320. Your paying more for the higher end graphics in the 2320 that your not going to use.

but in my area 2320 is 10$ cheaper than 2400..both 2300 and 2320 are intel hd 2000 i think...im currently using this hdd seagate barracuda 7200.12 500gb is this hdd performs better than a ssd ..is 7200 rpm better than 5400 rpm what about intel mobo's on ur view and finally is there any major difference between gtx 560 and 560ti..

get the 560ti they ARE the same chip but the 560 has 1 module disabled so has less cores, go for either a 560ti wait for the 660 to come out or go for a hd 6950, either of those will last a while

Ok your right about the cpu. It's the same graphics, I was confused.

Intel mobo's are kind of frowned upon for enthusiest, but your not overclocking or anything so go for it.

no mechanichal drive can beat an ssd and with the rpm bigger is better 7200 outdoes 5400 10000 beats 7200 etc.

i read some news that ivy bridge chipsets like h77 has native usb3 without 3rd party controller so at the price point of intel dh67vr can i get a asus or a gigabyte mobo with same features of intel board
