Will my first ever build do good?

So I've been saving for a computer build for a while and decided to start buying parts recently. I just wanted to know, will I be able to run a lot of the high end games out there? Mainly Arma 2/Dayz, Hawken, Dcs-a10, simulators, ect.

That should do it, what are your thoughts? I'm kinda already stretched at my max seeing this was suppose to be under 700 and it's almost 1k. Any different parts? Feel free to let me know. Oh and What fps should I be seeing on average in most games on high-max?

  2. Will this run better then the above build?
  3. Alot Better in Most Games.
    And the GPU is a Good Overclocker too.

    FX series is not faster than i5.
  4. Siiicck Bro, you're savin my ass in cash, I'll do your build but I think I'm going for that 660 sc card because it has 3gb and the storm case. What do you think I'll be able to pull in fps with this setup? And if I could find cheaper stuff, would you recommend me getting a 660ti? Or something higher than the 660?
  5. For 1080p you don't need more than 2GB of VRAM. But as your Wish.

    And yes Ofcourse get a GTX 660Ti if you can, Power Edition.

    And you can get any Case you like, I just listed a simple one for you to Change it according to your Needs.
  6. Sorry man, didn't mean to sound like a D, only two gigs? Thanks for the info, I'll mainly be playing on my 32" vizio TVs via Hdmi if that matters. Umm two last things, What DVD drive thing do you recommended thats cheap, and a Wi-Fi card for inside the rig? Oh and is there any place to get windows 7 for less than $99.99?
  7. yes there is one here http://pcpartpicker.com/part/microsoft-os-gfc02050

    outlet pc 89.98
  8. Get any DVD Drive. That doesn't matters much.

    And I'm Noob at Wi-Fi.
    Maybe you'll have to check around before buying them.
