Just wanted to make sure everything is going to work together since it my first build.

I whent with a 500w PSU I hope that its enough. Also this will be able to run average games right? on at least High settings. I play at 1280 X 720 resolution.

Games I plan to play on this PC.

Call of duty, minecraft, Team Fortress 2, Etc games of that caliber I dont plant to play games like Battlefield 3 and Skyrim

Specs:

Amd phenom II X4 965 BE
Radeon 6850 1GB
gigabyte ga-78lmt-s2p amd 760g am3
Kingston 8 gb Ddr3 1333mhz
Corsair builder series cx v2 500w
Western Digital 500gb 7200rpm
Coolmaster elite 430 mid tower case.


Any responce is apreciated.

I'm not a fan of amd processors. I have a x4 b95 at work in the computer and I can barely use the pc it is so slow. Of course they use Windows xp and maybe that is why.

I reccomend intel processors for more speed and better performance. Depending on what games you play you may want the 6870 or higher. But that card is fine. Make sure you get a mobo that is upgradeable. I know some amd boards are not backward compatible with other processors.

Should be fine for those games, to me it looks good if you aren't worried about having a future gung-ho machine at the time.
