More about : good build tiny voices a b B Homebuilt system February 18, 2013 11:05:04 PM If its for gaming, No. Way too much CPY/ motherboard/ PSU and no where near enough GPU Get an fx-6300 and a $70 motherboard. Get a 500w PSU. Used saved money for a better GPU (7870/gtx660). It will be much better for gaming. The 7770 will only game at medium settings.
