I want you to rate my new gamer that I built.

Nvidia GeForce SC 560 TI 1GB

AMD Athlon II X3 450

Biostar A870 AM3

8GB G.Skill 1333 ram

Viotech V2 700W

Lightscribe CD drive

HEC 63RABB mid tower

4 rosewill 120mm fans push/pull

6 fan controller

Extra USB port card PCI

Seagate barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM

Windows XP 64 bit

Artic silver 5

Will have stats soon, plays games like minecraft and world of tanks really fast. I haven't had the change to play anything else. Don't be too harsh, first custom build.

gfx card - very good. a bit overkill for minecraft though. :) 
cpu - decent. overclocking might be needed for more demanding games.
os - why xp 64? imo windows 7 home premium oem 64 bit would be better.
psu - haven't read good things about viotek/viotech.
cpu cooler advised, in case you overclock. make sure it fits your case and the rest of specs.

1,150 what?

Also, you may wish to read this regarding Viotech. It is not about your specific model, but still applies. http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5601

Some more interesting reading. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-ste...

And finally this regarding AMD CPU's. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o...

Overall, if the power supply does not blow up or fail and ruin your other components, you will have a decent mid level rig. Also good luck with the Biostar motherboard. Also no very good I'm afraid. And unfortunately, the low end AMD CPU will drag down the performance of the 560 Ti card slightly. The ram is very good though.

Wish I had better news, but I think honesty is a better policy.

Thanks guys, I will eventually get some better parts. Like an FX8150 or whichever the best one is. I may go intel, but well see.
