Advice please, any suggestions for gaming build?

Hey there,

I have spent forever picking this all out and finding the cheapest prices...
I have checked to the best of my ability but, will all of this work together?

Also, any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

I plan on gaming on this rig. Nothing too crazy though

Hey mate,

Not a bad build at all, however, I would go with the GTX560Ti for an extra $40. If you don't wanna go with that then check the for sale forum here.

Looks good for a low end gaming machine. Won't break any records but you should still be able to play most games at quite a decent setting.

Which case are you getting though? It's not in there. And I'm assuming you already have a keyboard, mice and monitor then.

One last thing. I would probably get a 1TB HDD. The cost isn't much more and you would be surprised at just how fast it seems to fill up once you have games installed, movies and music.

I think I'll stick with my current vid card, as long as it is compatible with my motherboard?

It's going to be compatible with any board that has any PCI-E x16 slot.
