Compatibility check

Processor :Intel processor core i3 2120
Motherboard : Gigabyte H61M-D2V
Memory :Corsair DDR3 4GB RAM PC1333
Video card :MSI GTX560 OC twin fans 1GB DDR5
Hard disc : SEAGATE SATA 3 750GB 7200 RPM
Casing : cooler master elite 343
Power supply : XIGMATEK BRONZE 500W
Optical drive : LG DVD-RW 22x SATA

Sorry I don't have much knowledge about computer. Do these parts work together ? I plan to play games like Battlefield3/Crysis2 at resolution 1900x1200. Is the PSU able to handle these parts ?
Thanks :)

  1. that should all work nicely.

    IF you can swing the extra $70ish, I'd suggest an i5-2400, as teh extra cores will be better for battlefield and many newer games.
  2. Definitely bump up to i5. You won't regret it.

    However that 560 might struggle at 1920x1200.

    This page shows a bunch of graphisc cards at 1920x1080:,2950.html

    It doesnt show the 560OC, however it does show its 560TI. At 1920x1200 expect a slightly higher performance hit on the GPU.

    Heres one for BF3:,2968.html

    This should give you an idea on how that card would perform with Crysis and BF3.

    Edit: You should be able to dial down the detail settings like turning off AA/AF with that GPU though (as the charts have some settings on that take massive performance hits depending on GPU), it might still work ok at that resolution. Just don't expect miracles.
