Hi everyone. I was wondering if this computer is well balanced and all that other stuff. Could you please recommend something if it looks wrong.

Specs: Intel Core i5 2320
ASRock B75M Motherboard
Galaxy GeForce GTX 560 1GB Slim
G.Skill Sniper F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
Sharkoon T9 Value Red Case USB 3.0
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular
Windows 7 64 bit

My budget is around $900 (AUD). Keyboard, mouse and monitor i already have.

This PC will be used for everything. Although it is leaning more towards the gaming side. Thank you very much.

for HDD's i reccomend you stick to Western Digital or Seagate (prefferably Seagate Barracuda).

As for the processor (using UK pricing on getting the NEW i5 2550K ivy bridge CPU is only about £30 more expensive, and from what i hear, totally worth it.

With regards to the GTX 560, i would stick the extra money into a GTX 560 Ti as the 560ti does give better frame rates.

Also, if you plan to overclock your CPU, more cooling would be an idea.

The i5-2550k is a Sandy bridge CPU, not an IB. It is not worth it.
