Hello, i was wondering whether this is a good PC for gaming for intense games such as BF3 and Skyrim on the highest settings (not intending to over clock) i have a budget of about £1000 give or take:
Computer Case: Sharkoon T9 Gaming Case (Red)
CPU: Intel i5 3570 - (4 x 3.4 GHZ) - Ivy Bridge
CPU Heatsink: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 - Low Noise
Memory: Corsair 8GB XMS3 PC3-12800 1600MHz (2x4GB) (DDR3)
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 - 2 GB
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H (Intel Z77)
Power Supply: Corsair 800W Gaming PSU - Low Noise
Hard Drive: 2 TB Seagate (2000 GB) SATA-III HDD 7200 RPM 64MB
Optical Drive: Samsung 24x DVD/CD Re-Writer/Reader - Black - (SATA)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 BIT
i went for an i5 processor because i heard i7 do not change the performance in terms of gaming much, especially for the extra money needed. not looking for an SSD either. too expensive for 30secs of load time which im not really bothered about anyway.
it would be great if you could tell me what i should change, if any, or if any parts that are not compatible with each other. thank you for any replies.
Thank you for the replies! been helpful. i didnt want to over clock because i really have no idea how to do it and i heard you can damage you pc if not done right, not if its as easy as you say i might buy the i5 3570k.
