I am building a new pc here is what i decided to go with

OS: Windows 7 Proffesional 64bit -Already have
MOBO: ASUS P8H61-MX UBS 3.0 - Buying
CPU: i3 3220 -Buying
GPU: AMD HD 7950 XFX - Buying
HDD: 320GB - already have
PSU: Cit 550W
RAM: 8GB DDR3
CASE: Cit 2016

My question is : Is the i3 3220 enough for current gen mmo's like WoW, Guild Wars 2 and Upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online, and can i max them games out with the 7950?

i have an i3-3220 with an HD7850 i mostly play MMO's and some FPS's, always high settings (1920*1080) never go under 60 frames, unless im a town with 200 ppl on the screen..
The 7950 would be better, but the i3 can take it.

While the i3 3220 is good enough your powersupply is not. Get a quality power supply from a brand like Seasonic, XFX, PC Power and cooling, Corsair, or Antec.

For MMO's a quad core would probably be a good choice. Grab the i5 3470, H77 mobo, and HD 7850 or HD 7870.
