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?

Corsair CMX4GX3M1A1333C9 XMS3 4GB DDR3 RAM Product Details
Voltage 1.5V

dude get it together . .



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

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.
