My pc (need help)

Hey,

Can you please tell me if this pc setup is a good one and if all the components will work together?
CASE: MS-Tech CA-0130
MOBO: ASrock H61M-GS
CPU: i5 3570
GPU: GTX 660
RAM: Kingston 4GB 1600MHz DDR3
HDD: WB Blue 500Gb
PSU: Cooler Master GX lite 700W (modular?)

Keep in mind that I want to be able to play bf3 on medium settings while recording. Thanks for inspiring me to pc gaming with your video about making your one setup! I live in the netherlands so my currency is euros. I was hoping to build my pc with 600-800 euros!

Thanks!

  1. I don't think I would purchase that case, PSU, or motherboard - H61 is very limiting in terms of what hardware you can use and you can't pair it with Ivy Bridge without a BIOS update.

    Here is what I would suggest on your budget:

    Case: Corsair Carbide 200R - € 59,90
    PSU: Corsair CX600 V2 - € 64,90
    Motherboard: Asrock H77 Pro 4/MVP - € 77,90
    CPU: 3.2GHz Intel Core i5-3470 - € 179,90
    RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz 1.5V - €47,49
    HD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue - € 67,90
    Optical: LG GH24NS70 12X DVD Burner - € 16,99
    Video Card: XFX Double Dissipation Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition - € 217,90

    Total: € 742,83
  2. Thanks for your quick reply!!
    I think I've decided to use your setup besides that I'm going for a 500 gb hard drive and also go for my old cpu because it's a little better and only like 3 euros more expensive! Thanks for your advice. My final question is this:
    Is this the perfect setup?
    Case: Corsair Carbide 200R - € 59,90
    PSU: Corsair CX600 V2 - € 64,90
    Motherboard: Asrock H77 Pro 4/MVP - € 77,90
    CPU: i5 3570 - € 183,00
    RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz 1.5V - €47,49
    HD: WB Blue 500Gb €54
    Optical: LG GH24NS70 12X DVD Burner - € 16,99

    Make sure the Vengeance RAM is low profile and get the hard drive I suggested - it's € 10 more and you get twice the space, no need to sacrifice here. Otherwise everything looks good.
  4. Thanks. This setup had been working flawlessly for me! I'm so happy with you guys who helped me out
