Good Gaming Spec's?

hello, I'm building my first system soon and this is a list of what i currently have in my watchlist:

i5 2500k
Nvidia gtx 660 oc
8 gb ram
1tb 7200rpm
Z77 motherboard

I plan on playing the following games like: far cry 3, battlefield 3 and metro 2033 what kind of FPS do you think i can expect with a 24 inch 1080P monitor and all at max to mid settings? also with all this work with a 500W PSU?
thank you for your time.

  1. What's your budget?

    Don't know if you are using a reference card or not but they should be more or less of the review above.

    Your power supply should work fine but more specific details about your hardware would be helpful. :) personally I would go 600w or 750w if your going to SLI later.
  3. no budget
  4. Is there anything that you already have?
  5. Get a i5 3570k instead of that sandy bridge!
  6. Ok I have suggestions for the parts.
    CPU - i5 3570K
    GPU - Radeon hd 7870
    Mobo - Any z77 motherboard is good
    Ram is fine.
    1Tb hdd is fine. But also get a 60-120 gb SSD
    PSU - Getting a modular PSU is better but it is not necessary. Also any PSU 500 watts and higher is good for your situation.
    Hope this helped!
