Hello,

I am looking into build a gaming machine. I'm willing to spend but am totally lost when it comes to finding parts that are both good and compatible with each other. Can anybody suggest me a good configuration?

Any suggestions will be appreciated !!

This build is fine but there is no PSU.... i would recommend a 700w psu at least 80plus silver rated. Also if you are having trouble with compatibility: http://pcpartpicker.com is a great website for finding compatible parts (and also the cheapest)

A 550W would be fine.

GTX670 more cost effective.

dish_moose is right, but I think jay_nar2012's recommendation was a 'money no object' type recommendation, based on the OP's 'willing to spend' comment. Similarly no need for that CPU if not overclocking - 3450 would do the job nicely. But if money isn't an issue, then why not :-)

This is very true but get the i5 3570 its 20$ cheaper and if you dont oc you will get great performance. That is definitely a build that could rock any of today's games @ 1920x1080 resolutions. If you provide a budget I could get something that better suits your budget together.
