  1. Not really. You can do much better if your main purpose is gaming.
  2. What country are you located in?
  3. Gaming isn't the main purpose but its certainly the most intensive thing I will do on it.

    What do you suggest I change?

    Netherlands
  5. I would go for an i5/i3 and 7850 setup. You also don't need 630 watts. A good quality 500w PSU will run this system without trouble. Use brands like Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.
  6. What i3/i5 do you suggest? the i5-2500 is 50 euros more expensive and looking at this chart (not sure if reliable) the fx-8120 is better.

    Also the 7850 is a good 90 euros more expensive then the 7770. Is it really worth it if my most intensive game is witcher 2 (And id be satisfied if I can run it smoothly on medium settings)

    The PSU is just as expensive as most 500w PSU's (52 euros) and a friend said this one is extremely quiet.

  7. an i5 will blow away that AMD chip in most tasks. I would suggest getting a current generation one though. A 3470.

    I would take an i5 and 7770 over the 8120 and 7770 any day.
  8. And what mobo should I get with that?

    A Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V???
  9. Any board with the features you want will work fine. Don't pay more than like $90 for it.
