I want to buy my own gaming pc and I'd like to know if this pc would work. If you can make any improvements just say it.
I am not planing to overclock anything in the near future, but maybe later.

Case: Cooler Master Elite 430

Motherboard: ASUS P8H77-M LE

Processor: Intel Core i5 3570K / 3.4 GHz

Graphic card: Sapphire HD7970 OC Dual Fan

SSD: Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC064B

HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM005

Memory: Corsair Vengeance

Cooler: Cooler Master GX RS-650-ACAA-D3

Power Supply: Cooler Master GX RS-650-ACAA-D3 (650 Watt)

DVD: Samsung SH-D163C


I have a 1100 euro budget (i have 1250 but I want a monitor with it so i have 1100 euros.)

Thank you

I personally wouldn't go that cheap on the case, and the 3570K will be useless with an H77 as you won't be able to use the multiplier. Cooler Master is also horrendously unreliable in the power supply department. I'd personally suggest trashing that whole build.

Try something like this:

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus - € 71,47
PSU: Corsair TX750 V2 - € 112,80
Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 - € 136,48
CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K - € 221,73
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - € 29,10
RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 1.5V - € 49,17
SSD: 128GB Crucial M4 - € 104,85
HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM - € 77,23
Optical: Sony Optiarc 22X DVD Burner - € 17,35
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 - € 319,22

Total: €1.139,40

A little bit more but you don't have to cut corners on the case or power supply and it's a far more balanced system.

Then drop the SSD and CPU cooler and put the money on the GPU.


Overall, I'd hold off for a few weeks and see what the gtx 660ti does to the market. It looks positive for consumers.

What do you mean with multiplier? English isn't my first language... And on another site they say it'll work just fine.

G-unit listed a good balanced build. It had a good cpu/gpu and some extra stuff that is not needed like a cpu cooler and ssd.

The extra stuff can be added later, meaning you dont have to buy them now. If you dont buy them now then you have more money to spend on the GPU. Once your system is up and running and you want to add a CPU cooler to overclock the chip, do so. You do not need to OC your chip and may not need to for at least a year. The i5 comes with its own cooler that works ok and will do. The SSD is nice to boot from, meaning you install and run Windows 7 from it. But you have a hard drive that can do the same job, just slower. Again, you can add it later.

In the end, you could then push somewhere around 150 to the GPU. That should be a meaningful outcome once you start playing.

PS dont go too cheap on your power supply.

Yeah you won't lose much by dropping to the 7950 - maybe a couple of FPS, if it's that big of a deal get the 7970. Otherwise the 7950 will save you about € 100.
