First time Pc builder, looking for opinions on this build ive assembled. Ive been editing it and switching out parts now for a couple months. If you have something to add or just want to say something don't hesitate in answering, I need other opinions because I'm so inexperienced at this.
What level of games do you play? Are we talking StarCraft II and Minecraft, or are you talking BF3 / MW3?
What's your monitor resolution and what detail level do you want to hit?
A 7770 is a nice entry level card. You'll get decent frames at medium detail settings, but not a lot more. If that's all you want, then you're good to go ( just add in a CPU, as mentioned. ) If you want better game performance, you'll need to spend upwards of $200 or more for a graphics card, like a 7850 minimum.
Without a cpu, it will not work.
I know, snide remark. No offense intended.
But, in general, a Intel cpu will give you equal or superior gaming performance than a amd cpu at any price point.
That gap is narrowing at the low end.
As a basic principle, budget twice your cpu cost for a graphics card to get good gaming balance.
Study this $500 tom's gaming build to see where you should best allocate your budget.
Prices and parts will have changed. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-pc-overclock...
I don't think games will take advantage of 6 cores for some time yet. I would say go with the AMD FX-4170 it has a 4.3 Ghz with turbo, it should give you better performance for about the same price. If you can I'd try to upgrade the VGA card too, other then than that it seems workable to me.
