First of all many thanks for maintaining this useful site!
I am about to buy different parts to build my gaming PC and wanted to ask all of you who are interested to advise me differently should you think so. I want to play most new day games without struggling in terms of frames per second etc. The PC specs suit my budget needs, but should there be plausible backing argument, I am more than willing to go for AMD rather than Intel.
The specs are:
Motherboard: GA-H61M-S2V-B3 GIGABYTE H61M-S2V H61 Express Chipset Motherboard Socket LGA1155
CPU: Intel Core i3 2100 - 3.10GHz Dual Core, Socket 1155, 6MB L3, DMI Bus, 32nm, x64, Intel HT, Intel VT, Intel HD Graphics @ 850MHz
Graphics: Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD6850- 1GB GDDR5, 256-Bit Memory Bus
Memory: 2 x 2GB Kingston DDR3 1333MHZ
PSU: Item_6: GZ-ODIN-370-C2 : GZ-ODIN-370-C2 GIGABYTE® ODIN 370W 24-Pin Power Supply, 2 Molex & 3 SATA Power Connectors, Intel LGA775 Ready & Approved
Screen: SAMSUNG 2333TN SAMSUNG 2333TN LCD - 23 Wide, 16:9 HD Format, 1920x1080, 5ms Response, 50000:1 Contrast Ratio, 300cd/m² Brightness -
CPU Cooler: CC-CV211P Coolermaster Vortex 211P, RR-V211-22FK-R1, low-profile design, aluminium base+fin with 2x HDT copper heat pipes (Heat pipe Direct Touch), rifle bearing 94mm fan, 2200rpm
HDD: Western Digital 800GB, CAVIAR GREEN, RPM 7200, 64MB CACHE SATA11 3Gbs - INTERNAL 3.5 , DESKTOP
Wherever you see fit, please comment, suggest on changes.
A few starting points:
1) is the 5 ms response time for the screen proper for gaming?
2) Is the PSU compatible with the mainboard/socket?
3) Is the graphics card the best in the price class to go for?
4) should I rather go for an AMD than Intel given my gaming motive?
5) Is the 7200 RPM HDD fast enough?
6) Is the CPU fan adequate?
7) is the CPU adequate for my purposes?
Thank you kindly for ANY comments whatsoever.
