Hello! I am building my first gaming pc and I was wondering if these specs are good or if I need to change anything.

Zotac Z68ITX-A-E LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Motherboard
Intel Core i5-3550
Corsair Enthusiast Series 650-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop Hard Drive Bulk/OEM
MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC Graphics Card
Corsair Hydro Series H80 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
CoolerMaster HAF 922 case

:hello: 

[EDIT] So after just browsing the forum I've noticed that AMD processors are absolutely terrible compared to Intel processors for gaming.

More about : good build

So I should just go with the i5 instead?

Yep. Intel has a distinct advantage for gaming that NO AMD CPU can match.

Alrighty then! :bounce: 

My last concern at the moment is if you know anything about the case that I'm using as I'm unsure if I can fit a 570 in it.

It can fit the 570 even with the hard drive cage in.
