    Change the psu to a better brand... seasonic, antec, silverstone, xfx, corsair, pc power & cooling, ...one of those brands and make sure your RAM is 1.5v. Everything else looks fine.
  2. No, that rig wont fulfil your wish.

    Get an i5 2500k CPU or the i5 3570k.

    Upgrade the GPU to at least a 7850.

    Get 1600Mhz RAM

    I don't even recognize that motherboard. Looked it up and the specifications on it don't look all that great. Get an AsRock Z77 Extreme4 motherboard.

    Dont know about the case, but I doubt a $55 case will hold a rig of the calibre you want. I suggest a HAF 912 as its cheap and very good.
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cooler-Master-HAF-912-Plus/dp/B003XEDTLM/ref=pd_cp_ce_0

    Up the PSU to 600-700W, 500W leaves no room for upgradability or overclocking.

    For any fast machine you'l want an SSD, if only to speed up boot times.

    Assuming if you want maximum performance, youl want to overclock. Need an aftermarket CPU cooler for that. The CM Hyper 212 EVO is a good start.
    www.amazon.co.uk/COOLER-MASTER-RR-212E-16PK-R1-Cooler-Version/dp/B0068OI7T8/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1337157393&sr=1-1

    If your budget only extends to what you'v got written down, your wish may be impossible. Hell, even the stuff I suggested wont max out a game like Crysis 2 or Metro 2033 on a proper 1920x1080 monitor.

  5. If you want to get a decent rig, fill in this form and start a new thread. Definitely state your budget, as it seems to be pretty low for your expectations of the rig.

    No doubt someone will be able to make a decent machine on your budget, but we need the info.
