I'm about to build a new rig and I wanted people's opinions on my build. Also if you had any suggestions for me or anything you think i should change, that would be great. I am using my computer to play the latest games on max settings like Civ 5, Crysis 1-3, Total War, Battlefield 3, Call of Duty, etc. Can my build handle these games and will my build work? In other words, will my system work using the parts i am going to buy. And am I missing anything from my Build. Thanks for all your help!
My parts list is below:
-COOLER MASTER HAF XM RC-922XM-KKN1 Black Mesh, Plastic, Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
-BIOSTAR TZ77XE4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
-HIS IceQ Turbo H785QT2G2M Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
-COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M2 RS720-SPM2D3-US 720W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
-Intel Core i5-3450 Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.5GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637I53450
-Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD1 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
-Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit - OEM
P.S. I have a spare optical drive and HDD. Also the BIOSTAR motherboard comes with 8 GB of RAM.
why can't I overclock my i5 with the mobo i have now, it seems like it could handle it. Also the GPU has a clock rate of I believe 1000 Mhz cuz its factory overclocked. Does that mean it still can't handle games on max settings?
