Back To PC Gaming...

Specs: Windows 8 64 Bit

Hi there,

New to this but here goes. Was into PC gaming a few years back but gave it up due to having a PS3 and just found it easier. However, recently wanted to get back into gaming and have ordered this hardware... Please can you tell me honestly what this will be capable of playing these days?

Thanks

If it's already been ordered, what's the point? I notice there's no power supply on your list. That component will be the key to your success or failure.

Because I can still add or remove parts until it's being built. Yes it's a 900watt

"Yes it's a 900watt"

Stating the wattage doesn't tell us much. Is it a top quality brand name unit? Single +12v rail with high amperage? Active PFC? 80 Plus certified or better? Japanese caps? 3-5 yr warranty?

It's not rubbish. I'm trying to get to the info you didn't include in your post. And from experience, the PSU is probably THE most misunderstood hardware item in a computer build. A lot of people have no problem sinking a ton of money into the motherboard, CPU, RAM, video card, etc & usually spend some time researching the choices. But when it comes to the PSU, they cut corners - either because they want to save money or aren't familar enough with PSU specs. A PSU choice should never be based solely on wattage. I don't know who G7 is (never heard of them) but I find it suspicious that none of the sites I found that sell that particular PSU list the important specs that I listed in my other response. For example:

No mention of +12v rail design, no mention of efficiency, no mention of PFC, no stated warranty, etc. To me, that throws up a red flag. Now look at this description:

Thanks for your reply! yes when I purchased i was tempted to get a GTX 680 but apparently not that much better than 670's. I've had my system around a week or so now, two GTX 670's running in SLI. Sadly though I have an MSI 670 and a Palit 670. Don't know if their the best but their doing fine at the moment. Had to adjust my fan controls for extreme games, GPU fan goes to about 80% and never goes over 65 degrees on card one and never over 60 on card too. Is this good?
