    Red face First Gaming Build

    Can you guys tell me if these are good specs for a gaming PC. Looking to run Battlefield on Ultra at around 60 FPS and DayZ on very high with at least 50 FPS. Tell me if it is possible with these parts or if i should upgrade downgrade some parts to make my wishes come true.

    CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-3570K 3.40 GHz 6MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1155
    HDD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD
    MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory
    MOTHERBOARD: * [CrossFireX] ASUS P8Z77-V LX Intel Z77 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard
    VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card
    CASE:Azza Fusion 3000 Full-Tower Gaming Case w/ 1x 140mm & 2x 120mm fans & 360MM liquid cooling ready
    COOLING FAN:Xtreme Hydro Liquid Cooling Kit 240MM w/ XSPC Rasa 750 RS240, Dual Fan(CPU & GPU Liquid Cool Capable
    PSU:850 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply

    I would only like to spend about 1200 not including a monitor, preferably 1920x1080p(about 21-24 inch)

    Look's pretty good. I probably would change the PSU to something cheaper.

    That's a mighty fine first build. I'd suggest changing over for a 750W PSU instead. Liquid cooling is also not necessary.

    ditch the watercooling and get a better gpu, get a better, lower wattage power supply, gold/platinum rated, and a better case. you have to look at your case every day, get something that looks good.

    because you'd get more benefits from a better gpu, a better power supply, and a better case than you will from a watercooling loop.

    If you want Battlefield 3 on ultra at 60fps you'll need at least a GTX 670.
    Click the 'Thanks' button at the bottom right if I helped you in some way or if you're a good person looking to thank me for no reason
