LOGISYS Computer PS480D 480W ATX12V Power Supply

CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A1600C11

Foxconn G41MXE LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P

Will it run most steam games (not including FPS games like COD and Battelfield
Also, i can post the full build if anyone wants me to just ask for it

It might run those games, until the power supply blows up. Seriously, you need to get to at least around $30-35 for a decent power supply.

You have an incompatible motherboard for that cpu, you need an lga 1155 board.
Like this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

There's a good psu on newegg for a good price : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This one is of quality, made by seasonic.

A 500GB hdd might be suffice for the os and other stuff, it all depends on what data you'll put in.


Also if it's for gaming it's recommended going with a better card, like the 660 gtx.

You don't need a sound card.
In my opinion for gaming invest on a better card either a 650 ti or 660 gtx if possible.
The antec neo 620 is a good choice.

the jacks on the motherboard are the same thing that are on the sound blaster card except the quality isnt as good as the sound cards usually but not much of a difference.

Yeah that motherboard has a Realtek ALC887 codec, basically an integrated sound card. It's not quite as good as a dedicated sound card, but it's not far off. Plenty for regular usage.

What is your budget(US, Canadian)? Do you live near a microcenter? IF US, what state? I notice you are including mouse, keyboard, and speakers. Do you need a monitor as well? Minecraft isn't too hard on a GPU, but can use a lot of ram. Planetside 2 can be pretty hard on a graphics card. If we know a bit more, we can help you find parts that will be among the best bang for your buck in your budget. Also, newegg is great for product info and user reviews, but is not always the cheapest place to buy parts. There are a number of other decent sites out there. pcpartpicker.com is a useful tool for finding prices on parts and putting together a system. Lots of sorting options on the various part pages. You can compare prices on a part between different vendors and use the links they provide for more product information and user reviews(also to see if things are in stock and how much shipping is, if anything).

Edit: Also, pcpartpicker is pretty good at catching problems with things being incompatible in a build. If you create a theoretical build there, you can post it here either by copying and pasting the short code in the upper left of the page or clicking the bbc code button in the upper right and copying and pasting the info that shows up in the pop up box in a post in this thread. Hope this helps.
