I am going to build a gaming system for a 1024x768 resolution.
I have came up with the following:

Intel Core i3-2120 3.30GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor
EVGA GeForce GTX 460 Superclocked FTW 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache
Corsair Builder Series CX 600W V2 '80 Plus' Power Supply
Zalman Z9 Plus Tower Case with Fan Controller
Gigabyte H61MA-D3V Intel H61 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard
Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit
Samsung SH-S222BB/BEBE 22x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter

Is there anything i should change for a better build? :bounce:

budget is less than £500.
Not going to overclock i think.
I want to run games on max settings.
I don't want sli/crossfire

you should for an i5-2300. It's better for gaming than the 2120

So go for the i5-2300 and for the hd 6870 (is similar and is cheaper)
