Apr 2, 2011, 11:02 PM
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.

My mistake! I've based that on a review that I saw for the wrong model of Xigmatek (
Can't seem to find a Xigmatek PSU with the model name you've listed though?
