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.

Cheers

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

As for the processor (using UK pricing on www.scan.co.uk) 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.
