Ok so I posted a few days ago and got some good advice. Since then I've purchased some new hardware and would like to know if/when I get it installed will have a a decent gaming computer.

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
CPU INTEL|CORE I7 3770K 3.5G 8M R (New)
MB ASROCK|Z77 EXTREME4 Z77 1155 R (New
12g of DDR3 Hyper X T1 Ram and
8gb Crucial Ballistix Sport 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (This cae with the mother board from Newegg.) (New)
Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (New)
SLI GTX 560 TI cards I believe they are 2g
Thermaltake: TR2 RX-850W Power Supply

I've marked the new items I purchased. Will this be a good gaming system ?

sorry... really looks a little messed up...

you got 12gb of hyper x ram and 8gb of crucial ballistix? at same time? why? and why 20gb?

you got a 3770k CPU and a 560ti sli??? why not downgrade the cpu to 3570k and upgrade the gpu to 7870 xfire for a much better gaming rig.


gonna ask... what is your budget. where are you from. and which parts do you ALREADY have or which parts are ON THEIR WAY

First off you can't use 5 RAM dimms effectively. You'll have to use only 4.
The cards you bough aren't really new or high end but they will deliver excellent FPS since you are two.
Otherwise great build.

Personally I'd have gone for 8gb or 16gb of kingston or corsair 1600mhz CL9 ram.
Assuming you can spend a little more, I'd completely change the gpus to something more modern that would be individually better than a 560 ti. As mentioned before, at least 7870 (although you could pick up a 7970ghz for not too much nowadays). This will make sure that it lasts longer too.

If you can't spend more then go for the 3570k .


Currently (assuming you dont use that crucial ram) i'd say that it's a pretty good gaming pc, but there's definitely room for improvement.

Downgrade the CPU and go for an SSD rather than a 7200RPM HDD.

Sorry I didn't supply enough information.

I have had this computer for approximately 8 months:

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
i7 920 2.267 GHZ
12g of DDR3 Hyper X T1 Ram
SLI GTX 560 TI cards I believe they are 2g
Thermaltake: TR2 RX-850W Power Supply

I wanted to upgrade it so I asked in another post, what would be good to purchase.

I already had the 12 gb of ram. The 8gb of crucial ballistix, came with the MB I believe for free from new egg.

So essentially I just purchased a new CPU, HD, and MB. I am plaining on just keeping the same ram that I have always used and cards because I can't buy better ones ATM.
I am very new to picking and choosing what I should buy and not buy for a gaming computer, and I know my CPU was slow and over clocking it didn't help at all. My next purchase I have in mind is a new video card but that's a little down the road.

Also I have no idea what the crucial ballistix ram is lol, I just assumed I could use it as well. Sorry for the confusion.

So if these are the specs of my computer will it be at least a decent gaming computer.

Hopefully the 12gb ram is 1600mhz speed.

But yes that should be able to do everything quite nicely.
