Hello, I'm customizing a gaming PC from an Australian website, techbuy.com.au. Here are the specs.

Antec Three Hundred Two Midi-Tower Case

OCZ 650W ZT Series powersupply

ASUS P8Z77-V LK Motherboard

Core i5 3570K Quad Core cpu

8GB RAM

EVGA GeForce GTX660 - 2GB GDDR5 superclocked edition. Graphics Card

Windows 7 64-bit Home Preimum.

Is the PC any good? Would i be able to play games such as Borderlands 2, Battlefield 3 and Far Cry 3 on very high setting? Any recommendations, Alternatives, suggestions.
Thank you.

motherboard/case/processor are quality items .

Hard to say if the RAM is any good without knowing what it is , but the amount is right for a gamer

The GTX660 is a decent graphics card and will play those games well , but if you spend more money you will get better performance

This configuration will satisfy the typical gamer who runs a 1080p monitor. Currently there's no game that needs a better video card unless you're running 2650x1600 or multi-monitor.

^^he meant the brand of the ram, any decent brand will do, like corsair, ocz, among others.

those are good specs, just double check if they are giving you decent prices

Techbuy are expensive, but have really good customer service, and know what they're talking about. I bought a couple of things, listed in stock, but really weren't. Simple phone call to cancel order and had my money back in less than an hour. But they are expensive.

also the ZT series from OCZ are terrible, there are alot of fan complaints because it sounds like a jet engine as soon as any proper load is put on it.

I would also get a CPU cooler like a 212 evo. And yes, you would run those games quite well.

I liked PCCaseGear until they removed being able to pay by paypal. Paypal is so much easier to use.
