Hi, i'm trying to put together a gaming pc that has good browsing capabilities as well, and I wont be overclocking, but i have no idea as to what works together and what does not. I would be very thankful if you could tell me if this rig would work and if there's any mandatory improvements or any un-needed parts as I am working off a budget and would like the price to be as low as possible,

Gaming Case: NZXT Phantom 410 Gaming Case
Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Processor
Processor cooling: COOLER MASTER DP6-9EDSA-0L-GP CPU Cooler
Memory: 8 GB [4 GB X2] DDR3-1600 Memory Module G.Skill Ripjaws X
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 - 2GB
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Pro4 -- 1x PCI-E 3.0 x16
Power Supply: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Primary Hard Drive: 1 TB HARD DRIVE -- 32M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s single drive
Optical Drive: 24X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive
Sound Card: 3D Premium Surround Sound Onboard
Network Card: Onboard LAN Network (Gb or 10/100)
Windows 7

Once again, any help would be greatly appreciated and if you want to scrap the rig above completely and make a new one I would not mind but keep it below $950.

Looks pretty good. My only suggestion is if you want it to be a "gaming pc" I would put a little more money into your GPU, and if that puts you over your budget maybe spend a little less on the CPU since even an i3 (or pentium for that matter) is good enough for browsing.

how about a 7850? or 7870 from sapphire should be a nice buy ^_^ but if you can somehow by using any other means grab a sapphire 7950 (the one with dual x fan) would be awesome. not sure where you live but in my place a 660ti is more expensive than a 7950 XD so I would opt for the 7950 from sapphire
