will this setup be good for gaming? I'm not really sure about the graphics card. Should I get lesser card and go with an upgrade later, or is this a good card? Is 16gb memory overkill? And is a 32gb ssd large enough? input, thnx

16GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz

3570k
Z77 chipset mb
2 x4 gig of RAM


and a graphics card suitable for your screen resolution , so probably not a 7770 if you plan on hardcore gaming

The 3570k processor is a better choice for gaming . Cheaper and the same performance

you need 2 x 4 gig of RAM for a gamer . More wont help

a graphics card needs to be matched to the resolution of the screen you use . More pixels = more calculations. The 7770 is lower end of the mid range and not a great gamer at 1080p resolution

Go with the i5 3570, 8 gb of ram. The 7770 is a little on the low end but good for its price. With the savings from the processor and memory you could go with a 660ti and be much happier.

dell 30" @ 2660x 1600, but I can adjust it. far cry 3, assassins creed 1 and 2,all 3 hit man series. I was thinking a GeForce GTX 670 2 GB GDDR5, but it requires 500w, and this system only has 460w. is 40w shy going to fry my system?

Always run the screen at its native resolution

I would think a GTX 670 is going to perform well at that resolution , but you will be turning some image details down in some games

I would not use any card less powerful .
And if it means a psu upgrade , then get one
