    Nice build?

    So, I was watching E3, and while I was watching all the games and their graphics, my Intel graphics card had a heart attack, so I decided that I should buy a new build
    I am planning to build this one, this is basically the maximum budget I got, is it good? will it be able to run GTA 5 and AC Unity?
    Here it is
    Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz 6MB Cache Desktop Processor

    Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H Socket 1155 Motherboard

    G.skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 CL9 1.50v Dual Channel Memory Kit

    Western Digital (WD) Caviar BLUE WD10EZEX 1TB SATA 6Gb/s 7200 RPM 64MB Cache HDD

    SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 OC with Boost + Bioshock Infinite + Crysis 3 + FC3 + SD + Hitman

    Cooler Master K380 Mid Tower Desktop Case

    SeaSonic S12II Bronze 520W 80 PLUS Certified PSU

    Yes a 7950 will run them just fine, however try getting a 280x instead since it's on par with a 7970(I believe) and it's cheaper. Also get at least a 600w PSU.

    The 280x IS a 7970. Exact same gpu inside.

    Alright guys, forget the main post, This is the real deal
    I found one that exactly maximizes my budget, so basically, I will have no cash left after building this
    Intel Core i5 4670K
    GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H / LGA 1155 / Intel B75
    Kingston 8GB / DDR3 / 1600MHz / Desktop
    Western Digital / 1TB / Blue
    SAPPHIRE HD7950 / 3GB / OC / DDR5
    Cooler Master K-380 Black
    Corsair VS Series VS650 / 650W

    Is it good? will it run AC Unity and GTA 5 on high? Also, THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION
    Am I missing something? is there anything at all I forgot for the build?
    And will the parts fit in the motherboard?
    Thanks a lot guys @Aborted @Color @Doc

    All should run well on high(iffy on crysis 3) and if you have a long case (left to right side panel) then yes the card will fit.

    Well since you saved a good amount of money try getting a water cooler for your CPU, I recommend: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181032 .

    Oh sorry I didn't even see you posted your case @HeroicXPharaoh the card's dimensions are: 10.6" x 5.04" x 1.34" . And your case is 8.2 x 17.5 x 18.8 inch so yes it will fit very well.

    Wow that's pretty overkill. And that would barely fit in the K380. Trust me, I've tried, the case is so bad for cable management that you have to run the 4/8-pin CPU cable either through the GPU on the left hand side or go around the back and exit the far right hole and over to the left, making a radiator an extremely tight fit.
