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!

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

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
Video Card: XFX Double Dissipation Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition - € 217,90

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.
