My idea was to spend more money in CPU, motherboard and power supply and less on video card. My plan is to cloack CPU and buy video card after 3 year.
I didn't buy this yet, so critics and advices are more than welcome.

Should I be able to play new video games on high quality on this configuration, let say next 2 years?


INTEL CPU Desktop Core i5-3330 (3.00GHz,6MB,S1155) Box
MSI B75MA-E33
HDD Desktop HGST Deskstar 7K1000.C (3.5",500GB,16MB,SATA II-300)
DVD RW -RW RAM LG DualLay SATA
Kingmax 1x8GB DDR3 1600 FLGG
OCZ PSU Silencer Mk III Series™ 500W High Performance Modular Power Supply-EU
Zalman mid tower case black
MSI Video Card Radeon HD 7770 GDDR5 1GB/128bit

You need a K after the CPU number to OC it. Also what games are you going to play and how much is your budget?

This is your build:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3330 3.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($188.65 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: MSI B75MA-E33 Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($54.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: Kingston Blu Red Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($29.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Hitachi Deskstar 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($75.29 @ Mwave)
Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card ($114.99 @ Microcenter)
Case: Zalman Z9 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($63.98 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS90 DVD/CD Writer ($17.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $595.87


This is what I would do with $550:

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($109.99 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: ASRock B75 PRO3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($82.55 @ Newegg)
Memory: GeIL Black Dragon 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($32.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB Video Card ($146.65 @ NCIX US)
Case: Athena Power CA-GSB01DA (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($27.98 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Raidmax 530W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($39.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($17.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $528.13

My build is cheaper and in my opinion is a better computer.

EDIT:

You just recently stated that your budget is $700, so here is what I would do with that extra money:

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($114.99 @ Newegg)
Add another video card for 2-Way SLI with the GTX 550 Ti's ( 146.65 @ NCIX US )
Total: $707.22

Oh sorry about that, I didn't see it there. I fixed it (:, with 2-Way SLI 550 Ti's you could play the next 2 years with high settings for most games ( Never know what will come out in two years. )

Generally it should handle all you throw at it, as long as you do not handicap it's VRAM by using some huge 30"in monitor running at 2560x1600 resolution, or triple monitor setup, because in SLI or Xfire adding more video cards does not increase your total VRAM, your VRAM will stay the same of one of the cards.
