First Intel Gaming Computer Build  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The school year is finally over for me! This means it's time to make my computer I have been looking forward to all year. I am only 15 and am on a tight low budget. My other computer died after 5 years. It was really slow and not game worthy anyways. I don't plan on intense Max detail gaming, I am just looking for a system that can play every modern game at Med-High settings. I might overclock the GPU a little to grab a little extra performance. Well, I have been planing this thing for months and have been doing some research. With my 600$ budget, I believe the i3-2120 would be the best choice for me. Here are the specs of my entire build plan.

Cooler Master Elite 430 Case
Cooler Master GX 450w power supply
Intel i3-2120 Processor
Kingston Blu HyperX 8gb RAM
ASUS P8H61-M LX Motherboard
EVGA GTX 550 ti
Western Digital 500gb HDD
ASUS CD/DVD Burner
Windows 7 64bit

After MIR's I is exactly 600$! Perfect isn't it! I think this is maximum gaming performance per dollar. What do you think? Is there anyway I could possibly improve it without going over my budget. I don't want to go over that budget because I am not sure how much I will really game on it. I will probably play older games anyway like LOTR Battle for middle earth and games like that and maybe some minecraft. Thanks!
