New System: Good enough for high-end gaming? - Page 2

Hey everyone,


I recently purchased a new PC, and just wanted your thoughts about how it shapes up in terms of gaming. I'm not an ultra-hardcore gamer (no multiple monitors or anything like that), but I want to be able to play current games at high/ultra settings and games in the next few years at least on medium/maybe high level. Just to add: I'm looking for a 23 or 24 inch monitor, resolution no more than 1920x1080 or 1200, so I don't have anything more demanding than that planned at the moment.

OK, so the specs:


CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (overclocked to i7 Quad core 4.5GHz)
CPU cooler: Corsair CWCH60 Hydro Series H60 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 PRO R3 Motherboard
Memory: Kingston 16GB(4x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL9
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 64MB 3.5" SATA 6GB/S 7200RPM Dual Processor
Graphics Card: nVidia Geforce GTX580,1536MB-DDR5,384 BIT, DUAL DVI-I, HDMI,PCIE 2.0, ASUS
Power Supply: 850W Corsair TX Series Power Supply
Case: Cooler Master HAF932 Full Tower Case
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64


What do you think? Will this hold up well for now and for several more years? If not, is there any component that would act as a bottleneck? I'm mostly worried about the motherboard, as I don't really know a lot mobos.

I'd appreciate any thoughts and opinions. Thanks in advance!
You knew the answer to this before you bought the rig. Just don't expect anyone to ooooh and ahhh, this is OCN.

I have to agree. This rig is phenomenal, and is largely made up of the highest recommended parts. You know that, we know that, so no need to waste time.

Congrats on an awesome rig though.
