Gaming PC Build

The last few months I have gone from playing on console to PC. I have also gotten into recording games and uploading onto YouTube, which I find fun. My computer can play simple games at the moment, but I would like to be able to play games like Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3. I have a little bit of an idea of what I would like to get for my PC build so I made a list.

CPU: i5-2500K Unlocked


RAM:Corsair CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10 Vengenace 16GB 1600MHz

HARD DRIVE: Seagate ST1000DM003 3.5 inch 1TB

MOTHER BOARD: MSI 760GM Motherboard

CASE:Zalman Z11

So I just want to know would this be good for gaming recording?

First, you picked an incorrect motherboard. That motherboard is for AMD. You want an intel motherboard.

If you do not plan to overclock, go for the i5-34xx and a H77 motherboard. The ASRock H77 should work great.

What power supply are you using?

Do you have a budget?

Or you could get a cheaper vishera cpu like the new 6 core or an 8300.

I was going to use a AMD CPU and chose to go with the i5 2500k. Which must be why I had chosen a AMD Motherboard.

I don't really have a budget, but I would like to keep it around £500.

I do plan to overclock the CPU for better performance.

I would think that an amd cpu would be better with your budget. I know that is about $1000 usd but, it translates to more like 800, and I feel like if you got a cheaper cpu you could go for a better gpu.
