Does this computer sound good for gaming? Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: September 27, 2012 5:11 AM in Systems Share tacosauzee September 27, 2012 5:03:58 AM Hello, I'm building a custom rig, and was wondering if this will be good to run games, such as Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead. (DayZ to be specific) Here's the specs: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card GIGABYTE GA-Z77MX-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL Intel Core i5-2310 Sandy Bridge 2.9GHz (3.2GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52310 Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM Cost plus shipping is $800. (I have a keyboard, thermal paste, power supply, and case added in which adds about $150, making it about $950 total) Any improvements that will keep me around the same price would be greatly appreciated.

Get a full ATX board as opposed to mATX. I wouldn't bother with Z77 if you're not going to overclock, and I included a better GPU for $10 more. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
