The mobo and cpu are great for budget gaming.

I would suggest a different video card and power supply. A good 380-400w psu would be more than enough even with a higher end video card, you don't need 700w. Get a good 80+ bronze unit like Antec or Corsair.

Fill out the form so we know what your budget is, resolution, etc.
