Hi guys, I am planning to purchase a new rig. It is:

Intel i3 3220 3.3ghz Ivybridge
MSI H61M-P20 Motherboard
Corsair Value RAM 4GB DDR3 1333mhz
Tagan 500W StoneRock series PSU
Cooler Master Elite 311 Case
MSI NVIDIA GTX 460 OC CYLCONE 1GB

Tell me if I am good to go with the above rig.
Can it give more than 30 fps for the currently released and upcoming games at maximum setting at resolution 1600x900.
If not tell me which component I should change.
My PSU and GPU have already been bought so no change on that.
Tell me if my other parts can utilise my GPU to max without bottlenecking.
I don't intent to increase my budget a lot higher so no i7 or i5 please.

Thanks for looking :D

This appears to be a solid solid that I believe should be able to meet your expectations. The video card is a little old but should still perform well.

Don't get the 460. The 7770 is the same price, and outperforms it while using less power.

lol but not everyone needs an i7 or 7970 . you have a good build right there. you will easily be able to max out most games at 1600*900 at more than 30+fps avg.

Agreed! Haha! We were just messing around "pcham" You have a good rig there, but I would however, go for a HD 7770.

I agree with the HD7770. Mainly because we have had masny different MSI series GPUs at work and the MSI ones tend to go out more often than the other brands we have (Sapphire/EVGA).

Had one Twin Frozer GTX570 fan die 2 months after it sold.

Still a HD7770 like this:

Would be the best. Plus its a Vapor-X which runs even cooler.
