Hey guys, I want to get a new PC mostly for gaming and want it to last a few years. Is this build good enough? I will be using my PC mostly for Casual Gaming and just surfing the web... :3

Everything looks good to me except for the power supply. Don't go OCZ. I would recommend either SeaSonic, or Corsair. Now I don't know how much that equals out to in US dollars, but I think it's about $70. Look for a nice Corsair 600w http://www.amazon.co.uk/CORSAIR-Builder-Series-CX600-Po... such as that. No it is not modular but you have to pay extra for a QUALITY modular power supply.

Is 600W is enough for all my components? :)

Yes 600w should be plenty for the GTX 560Ti. It doesn't use much power at all.

Great, will it run games like GTA 5 in 1920x1080 mid settings above around 40fps? Or should I think about getting the GTX 570 instead? :wahoo:

It will run that game on ultra setting. :)

Wow really? Sweet! Around what fps do you think? :)

Well that all depends if GTA 5 is optimized even a little bit better than GTA 4, which basically had no optimization what soever, and even on some of the fastest GPUs would barely run above 40. But I think that the GTX 560Ti should be plenty enough for casual gaming, but if you are willing to spend the extra $$$ by all means go for a GTX 570. Great card, I'm getting one.

From what I hear, GTA V is not too intense of a game, so I'd say probably 40 FPS.
