500 - 550 $ gaming PC

I was thinking something between these 2 systems :

1: HIS IceQ Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB - 240$
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB - 80$
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 - 35$
ASRock B75 PRO3-M - 70$
Intel Pentium G2120 Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz LGA 1155 - 95$
overall : 520$
(The Intel G2120 ill change in 1-2 years because i'm on a budged atm , maybe ill add one more HD 7870)

2: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition OC 1GB - 140$
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB - 80$
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 - 35$
ASRock B75 PRO3-M - 70$
Intel Core i5-3470 - 200$
overall : 525$
(In future thinking of adding one more HD 7770)

As for case and power supply i will be scraping some from old PC .

PS: If there is something i can change tell me .

  1. Depends on what you're using your system for. I would list favorite games, if gaming is a priority.
  2. I will use it mainly for gaming : skyrim , assassin's creed 3 , and some mmorpg .
