Is this setup good enough for my needs?

Hi, I'm new to this stuff as it is my first gaming PC. I want to play modern games such as Battlefield 3. Batman: AC, and other high resolution games. Here are my specs (that's what you call them, right?), will they be good enough?

Intel Core i7 3770K 3.50 Ghz 8mb

Motherboard:[CrossFireX/SLI]ASUS P8Z77-V LK Intel Z77 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard

Power Supply: 1000 Watts -Standard Power Supply Crossfire/SLI Ready

8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory

Hard Drive: 2 Terabyte SATA-III

If there is anything that needs upgrading or downgrading or changed at all let me know. Any questions just ask, please help!!

    i7s dont have any advantage over a i5 in games.
  2. Thanks for the info!
  3. Is my motherboard better than the one you suggested, though? I can't really tell besides price. Will it make a difference?
  4. motherboards dont make a ton of a difference but you buy a motherboard for its features.

    i personally have the LK and its decent but the gigabyte had a couple more features like more usb3 connectivity. the LK has better software. pick one. both are great. also not that the ud3h has a beefier power design for slightly stabler overclocking
  5. would these motherboards have any effect on my gaming?
  6. nope. maybe 1fps at most?
  7. great, thanks for the info! i think ill get the setup you mentioned, thanks a lot thigbigtroll!
  8. no problem
