Hello! I'm buying a new PC in about a week or so.

So I thought of sharing my specs for you and listening to your opinions :) 

First of all, I'm using it for GAMING and GAMING only ^^ Not overclocking anything aswell


SPECS:

Intel® Core™ i5-3570 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz 6MB Cache Desktop Processor
MB GIGABYTE INTEL GA-H61M-S2P
G.Skill RipJaws 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 CL9 1.5v Desktop Memory
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 OC 2048MB GDDR5 Windforce 2X
Cooler Master GX650 650w Bronze Certified PSU
Thermaltake | Commander MS-I Mid Tower Desktop
Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB(OR 500GB Instead)

will I be able to run most of the games on ULTRA HIGH with no problems?
Will any of the parts bottleneck another?


Click spoiler for the links ^^

Any bottlenecks? No.

"Kickass" at gaming? Sure

I recommend getting 8Gb RAM instead of 4Gb.

Don't pay attention to Brett. Looking at his reply, I think he works for Powercolor.

VERY good machine, but defining kickass is a bit hard, my definition is running BF3 on 3 1080p monitors @ 60FPS maxed out. if thats your definition of kickass then no it wont do it. It will however run 1 1080p monitior maxed out with anything you can throw at it. Congrats. Oh and get 8GB of memory, RAM is dirt cheap now so theres no reason not to.

Sorry I meant 2x4 RAMs so it's 8GB

@Brett: That card is 6gb, overpowered card and beats my budget.... my budget? I don't really know how much xD oh and gtx 670 is pretty good imo.

@omnisome: Thanks (;

And you're better off with 2 sticks of ram rather than 1 .....recommend 2 4gb sticks...but if for some reason you want 4 gigs total then you're better off with 2 2gb sticks. Dual Channel will access the memory through both channels.
Two sticks will result in each having its own access channel and will perform better.
the rest looks good

also if you go with 64 bit os - (you should ) if you gigs 8 gigs of memory, since a 32 bit os will access only 4gb memory total --- if you need to stay at 32 bit os then only get 4gb ram ( 2x2gb) --- the only reason to stay at 32 bit os is if you dont want to spend the $ for new os or you have costly devices attached that dont have 64 bit drivers available....when i upgraded i went to 64 bit and had to get a new printer because the old one didnt have 64 bit drivers available. other than the printer all else works great under win 7 64 bit - you should have no problem. since its a new comp you should go with 64 bit os and 8 gigs ram - that combo will last you quite a while

instead of 670 get 7970...more horsepower for less dough.

already been suggested, no need for 7970, overexpensive when u can get 2x7950s for cheaper and perform on par and somethimes surpass 7970s.

the 7950 has wonderful power and overclocking abilities.

and 16gig versus 8gigs is alot more future proof for a bit more. totally worth it.

Thanks for all the suggestions! ^^
I know my pc is not the best in the world nor a kickass PC, but that's what upgrading is for. First it'll be the 670 then 680..690.. etc and also some new i7 CPU but my friend told me that's i7 is mostly used for editing. I'll just sticm with the current specs for now, and then when I get some money I'll upgrade again so it's much of a problem.

Oh and yes I'm gonna be using 64 bit ^^

Joseph - your choices are great and will run any game on ultra at 1080p. Others are suggesting spending a lot more but I would just leave it for now. By the time a game comes out that you are struggling to run on ultra the next Nvidia/AMD cards will be out and you could just upgrade the GPU (which may not seem as expensive as it sounds as the 670 will still have value on eBay). This will be much cheaper than buying a 7990, and easier that running a sli/crossfire rig.

The only thing I would add is an SSD if you can afford it. It won't affect the fps in games but will make a big difference in load times. The 120gb Samsung 840 that iceclock has suggested would be a good choice. The 240gb version would be even better.

like i said joseph, the system i built is is better and has better videocard.

a 7950 overclocks to 7970 levels and thats equal to the 680 and somethimes faster.

also the rest of the components are top notch.

unless ur budget is lower? since u havent told me ur max budget.

Well I don't really have a steady budget but sure as hell not for the specs you posted.. the system you built costs in my country like 9-11k which is pretty expensive, the one I'm planning for is like 5-6k that's why I'm starting off with a decent system and then upgrade to a better one.
Oh btw I'd like to stick with GeForce, I feel uncomfortable with AMD. Ah, I forgot to mention I'm from Egypt.

Thanks!
