[£460] First ever Gaming Rig [Budget]

So, Ill be getting my first ever gaming, Il be getting it this month or next, how is this for Mid-End gaming?

AMD Athlon X4 640 AM3

4GB DDR3 1333mhz (2x 2GB)

500GB S-ATAII 3.0Gb/s

22x DVD±RW DL S-ATA Lightscribe

Nvidia GeForce GTx 550 ti 1GB (Or ATI Radeon HD 5830 for £1.10 more, but I heard its worse).

Onboard 7.1 Audio

Xigmatek Asgard [Case]

500W Xigmatek [NPR-VC503]

Windows 7 Home Premium [OS]


I'll be getting Crysis : Maximus Edition as my first game, I may look into STALKER : Call of Priypit as my next, is it decent enough?

Would I be able to OC to 3.2Ghz, or would my PSU fail me.

  1. Unsure about that PSU. I know it's really boring to spend your money on but I'd go with something like this instead:

  2. The Xigmatek PSU is a good brand, Ive been told by an IT.....person.
  3. My mistake! I've based that on a review that I saw for the wrong model of Xigmatek ( http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story4&reid=128 )

    Can't seem to find a Xigmatek PSU with the model name you've listed though?
  4. Whoops, my bad too, its the NPR- VC503, not NPR-CV503.
