I am thinking of buying the NewEgg.com DIY Custom Build Core i7-2600K/Z68/8GB/1TB/THOR V2 SuperCombo. I was wondering if the price is good on this thing, and if it can handle games like Minecraft, TF2, Portal, and if it could also handle a Capture Software like Bandicam...
Most of the things are ok... you aren't really saving much though because the motherboard is priced relatively high.
Also, there's no dedicated GPU. You might be able to play TF2, but probably not maxed with wonderful framerates.
If you get it, buy a cheap gpu like a GTX 460 off of ebay and you have your gaming machine.
Btw, the processor is great for stuff like bandicam
The Intel® Core™ i7-2600K is an outstanding processor but the thing that really sets a gaming computer apart from a normal computer is the video card. While the Intel HD 3000 Graphics on that chip were our best IGP graphics up to that point they are still not the best answer in a gaming system for graphics.
