Do you think this build is good for running all modern games right now

My build is:


8GB RAM
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1024vRAM
AMD FX-4170 @ 4.2 GHz
OCZ Fatal1ty 550W Modular Gaming Power Supply
1920x1080 res.
BIOSTAR TA970XE Motherboard
500 GB Hard Drive


Would this be good for running games like BF3 at ultra or high settings or PlanetSide2 at high?

Maybe Smite as well? :>

Thanks!

  1. That mobo doesn't support that cpu. Have you bought any of this?
  2. How does it not support that CPU? The mobo is AM3+ and so is the CPU.

    Thats funny. That was my old mobo.
  5. Oh sh*t I wrote down my old mobo. HAHA let me change that.
  6. Do you already have any of these components?
  7. No. Not yet. Why?
  8. I'd get a hd 7770 over a gtx 550 ti.

    Go with a seasonic, corsair, xfx, or antec power supply.... Ocz is generally not good.


    For around the price of a 550 ti, you can get a evga 650 ti 1gb with assasins creed 3 for free. $139.99 at newegg.

    Or a xfx double D 7770 ghz edition with far cry 3. For $109.99 after $30 rebate same place.
  10. Nah. I'm gonna try out an GTX 550 Ti for now. I will probably switch to that at some time in the future. Thanks.
  11. With the 550 ti you'll be playing most modern games at low-med settings.
