budget build for gaming pc

Is this build ok. I want the build to have some longevity... it should be viable to play some new games at least 2-3 years in the future even in low - med setting. And I'm not really planning to overclock .... so how is it guys?


Intel Core 3570 i5- (Ivy Bridge) 3.4Ghz
Gigabyte Z77-MX D3H
Sapphire HD7850 GDDR5
Gskill Ripjaws X 4GB (2GBx2) 1600Mhz CL9
WD Caviar Blue 500 HDD
NZXT Source 210 Elite

  1. Looks fine.

    Unless you are gaming on multiple monitors, it should meet your goals. (Low medium settings)
  2. those are decent specs my friend except id chose something else as a ps, whats ur budget for powersupply?
  3. powersupply.... I really don't have a clue.... about 50-80 bucks I suppose. I just chose the closest powersupply that I need to run the rig. :(
