Opinions about my new PC Gaming for DotA2 and B3...

Hello guys. Long time Mac user/DotA Allstars player as well since AoS (if you guys know what I mean of course) right here. Anyhow let's cut the bullshit and go right to the business. I don't own a PC for more than 5/6 years so I decided to build one to go back to my favorite game which is DotA (is now being done by Valve and IceFrog himself and everyone should go try it if you can get a key, the true ARTS/DotA genre is DotA itself, not LoL). I would like to play the game at 1920x1080 on a 21,5" monitor with good FPS at max settings (60/70fps average would be awesome). So my budget is 1200€ with Monitor, Mouse and Keyboard... here's the PC I started doing:

- i5 2500k 3.3GHz
- ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN 3
- Corsair Vengeance XMP PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 8GB 2x4GB CL9
- Cooler Master V8
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 1TB SATA3
- Nzxt Phantom 410 White (Case)
- Corsair TX650 V2 650W
- Gigabyte Geforce GTX 560 Ti OC 1GB GDDR5
- Asus VE228H 21.5" LED DVI HDMI (Monitor)

- Steelseries Sensei
- Steelseries NP+
- Steelseries Siberia V2 Frost Blue
- Steelseries 7G

Everything should be around 1200€/1300€ which I can only afford (I recently bought a Cintiq 24HD). My questions are, with this PC could I get 60/70fps average in DotA2? How about B3? Would you change anything for better performance?
Cooler Master V8 or Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H40? Edit: It would be better the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC or the Asus GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP 1GB GDDR5?

I would appreciate your opinions guys since I'm not that good at building PC's and this is my first actually...
Thanks!

Here, give this a try...

This particular build is in US dollars. So you'll just have to convert it over to euros. Should still be in your 1200-1300€ budget. If you need to cut costs a bit more, go with either of these GPUs...

They're both fast, and will definitely achieve your target frame rates in those particular games you listed. However, the gtx 670 is a 'force to be reckoned with'. if you can, grab it. It's worth every penny.

Thanks for your reply mate. Unfortunately if I go with that build I would not be able to buy the gear (keyboard, headsets mice and mousepad). Although I would be able to consider adding the GTX 670 to my previously build... would you recommend it? Thanks anyways...

That depends on you previous build's specs. Can you list your previous build's specs?

Since the gtx 670 doesn't fit the budget, grab either the radeon hd 7950, 7870 or the 7850. All of those would be better than a 560ti.

Basically just remove the GTX 560 Ti and add the GTX 670. Would be something like this:

- i5 2500k 3.3GHz
- ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN 3
- Corsair Vengeance XMP PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 8GB 2x4GB CL9
- Cooler Master V8
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 1TB SATA3
- Nzxt Phantom 410 White (Case)
- Corsair TX650 V2 650W
- Gigabyte Geforce GTX 670 OC 2GB GDDR5
- Asus VE228H 21.5" LED DVI HDMI (Monitor)

Would it be a good build?

OOOH!, my bad. I didn't realize you meant THAT build. I thought you were talking about an older build you had. That would work just fine. If it fits the budget, I say go for it. Sorry for the confusion. :D

Hey no problem although I would like to hear more suggestions from people. Remember guys, 1200€ with gear and the gear is like 200€.
Thanks.

Unfortonately there's any good soul out there with good will to help out haha. Anyhow thanks DeusAres! I'll probably get the same build but buy the GTX 670 instead.
