    by the way your selection is good but that psu sucks.
  2. The speed and detail settings you achieve will depend on the resolution of your monitor

    But there are a few things wrong with your build
    You need to use a 2 x2 gig kit of RAM . That will work in dual channel . It also should be 1.5 volt or less which the XMS is not

    The thermaltake psu is junk . Anything with a small red voltage switch on the back is not worth considering . Buy 80+ bronze or better rated unit .


    what exactly is your budget? Do you have a copy of windows?

    You are correct , it is rated for 1.5 volt . I assumed it was the 1600 MHz variety so obviously I didnt read the serial number closely enough .
    So the OP needs to know to buy 2 x2 gig of 1600 MHz RAM rated for 1.5 volt operation
  5. I'd consider a 6870 video card instead of the 560 TI, the 6870 is substantially cheaper and very close to the performance of the 560 TI. If you want to spend the money for the 560 TI, I'd go with a Radeon 7850.
  6. Intel Core i5-2300
    Asus P8H77-M LE
    Thermaltake LitePower (600w) - will be replaced by iMaster PRO 80+ 600w
    Corsair XMS3 4gb (CMX4GX3M1A1333C9) 1x4 - will be replaced Kingston Hyper X 4gb Genesis (1800C9D3K2/4G) 2x2
    AeroCool StrikeX
    Asus 24x 24B3ST
    1.0TB WD Blue
    EVGA GTX560 Ti FPB 1gb ddr5 hdmi - will be replaced Asus 6870 1gb ddr5 256bit

    tnx guys for all the suggestions.
