Are These Specs Good for a Gaming PC? (First Build Ever)

Q: Are These Specs Good for a Gaming PC? (First Build Ever)

Hello pc builders, I'd like to ask for some advice on building a gaming pc. I've picked out some parts that I think are good, but I do not know that much about custom building computers and what parts are most suitable for gaming.
I'm trying to keep the price limit at $1000 USD. Here are the parts that I've picked out.
CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard: MSI Z97-GAMING 7 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
HDD: Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Video Card
Power Supply: Corsair CX 500W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Case (probs doesn't matter) Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 Advanced ATX Mid Tower Case

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'd recommend a better graphics card.

If you are on a budget, you probably wouldn't need 16GB memory for gaming just yet. A $60 savings on 2x4GB modules, would go along way in getting a better graphics card. I'd recommend at least Radeon HD 7790 or the newer release Radeon R7 260X.

A:Are My Gaming PC's Specs good

What CPU are you going to use? You listed the CPU cooler, but not the CPU itself. I would suggest an Intel i5 4690K, especially considering that you are getting a motherboard that is meant for overclocking and you are getting a liquid cpu cooler.

A:Good specs for gaming PC? First time

Did you already purchase the items above or is that what you have in mind for purchasing? What is your overall budget for your Gaming PC? What types of games are you going to be playing on this PC? The AMD FX-8350 is a good CPU, but if you want any kind of future proofing, I would suggest getting an Intel. If you let us know how much you can spend, we can help you build one that will be better for future games.
Also, no you do not need a SSD (Solid State Drive), but it will make boot times and load times faster. My suggestion with that, is purchase a smaller SSD (120GB maybe) for your operating system and also purchase a larger (1TB+) Hard Drive for everything else (applications, storage, etc).

A:Good specs for a new gaming computer

Well, those games will not require anything hard core in terms of specs. But, to answer your question, it all depends on the particular games you play and, at what resolution you like to play at. So, no-one will be able to give you a one size fits all gaming spec. But, here is what I'd look for:
Quad Core CPU, 4GB RAM,Dedicated GPU and 7200rpm HDD.

You will need to provide us with the following if you want us to recommend specific parts.

Hello, I currently play a PC game called World of Tanks, aswell as many other little games such as TF2, Minecraft, etc.

I'm not able to run WoT smoothly, and I have most of the graphics settings down. I'd like to play on high-max settings on most games.

Here are my specs: (I don't know much about computers so I'm posting everything)
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
- Lenovo Ideacentree K330A
- Intel(R) Core(TM) is-2100 CPU @ 3.10 GHz (4 CPU's)
- 8192 MB RAM
- Direct X11
- ATI Radeon HD 5450 Graphics card

Which should I upgrade first to get better FPS in games? Thank you, and if you need additional information, please ask.

A:Are my PC specs good for gaming? What to improve?

The CPU and memory are fine. The only thing to upgrade would be your GPU. You might also have to get yourself a decent power supply to be able to run the GPU. What's the power rating of your current PSU?

Hello everyone I am graduating with my B S this Friday and my parents asked me what I wanted for a graduation present and jokingly I said a new computer and they went for it So now I m in a pickle of sorts cause I do want one The one I am using now is about years old it is running ok but obviously is becoming quite inferior This computer was custom built with my friend s help so was pretty good at the time it was made Now I am about to engage heavily into computer gaming with SW The Old Republic coming out and will probably also play Diablo when that is released so I am hoping to get a computer which can handle these games on the highest settings That being said however my dad is pretty firm about getting a computer from Best Buy or some type of retail seller IIRC this is frowned upon by most computer experts or at least for those who build their own Can I get your advice as to good models for the kind of gaming I will be doing Or at least the minimum specs I should be looking at or things brands to avoid when picking one out I was really hoping Specs retail computer? gaming for good a to get something relatively top-of-the-line but I don t think the budget could exceed K nbsp

A:Specs for a good gaming retail computer?

Best Buy do sell computer components so you're not limited to buying a prebuilt (ugh).

No Best Buy in my country, but a quick look at the site shows you can build a pretty good system for that budget. Bear in mind you could save around $500-600 by going with a more basic setup:
Intel 2500K CPU+ Gigabyte Z68 motherboard + 8GB RAM $649
Power supply: Corsair TX650M $100
Windows 7 x64 Home Premium (OEM) $110
Chassis : Corsair Carbide 500R $122. You can save ~$40-60 by going with a more basic case.
Hard drive: WD Cav Black 1TB $150 (Prices are obscenely high at the moment)
HP DVD rewriter $30
Basic component cost (so far) : $1141
Graphics card. If you aren't planning on upgrading again in the short/medium term, then I'd suggest spending enough to see you through the current and upcoming game releases.
XFX HD 6950 1GB $243.

Monitor...Your choices are a cheaper TN+film panel, or a more expensive IPS panel which offers better color range (gamut) but may have higher latency (detectable ghosting with fast motion).
HP's 2511x (25", 1980x1080) is a very nice TN based LED panel ($230) or
HP's ZR24W (24", 1980x1200) is a very nice IPS based panel ($405)

Total: $1634 or $1809

Peripherals, if you don't already have them:
Mouse : Razer DeathAdder 3500 ($60) -Highly recommended. I use one myself- very nice ergonomics and fully featured.
Keyboard: Razer Arctosa ($50)
Mouse pad : Razer gaming pad ($15)
CPU cooler...
If you are planning on NOT overclocking then the boxed Intel heatsink will work fine...However, if you are planning an overclocking adventure (the 2500K is usually good for 4.7+ GHz in daily operation) then I'd suggest an aftermarket cooler:
A mild or medium overclock - mid-priced air cooler such as the Corsair A70 ($38), a medium-high (say 4-4.3GHz) oc needs a good air cooler such as the CoolerMaster V6GT ($51), while a 4.6 or more I'd recommend either a very good air cooler (none on the Best Buy site that I could find), or the Corsair H100 all-in-one water cooler ($110).

You'll need to make some compromises along the way- especially if you are paying for someone (Geek Squad) to put the system together - wasted money IMO. There's enough online help and guides to allow you to put the system together easily- although your father might have other ideas on the subject. Decide what you need, and what you don't, and whether you would be happy with a gaming orientated TN monitor, or would prefer the better colour reproduction that the IPS provides. Your best bet here would be to see both types in the flesh- so a reconaissance to your local computer shop could well be in order.
Juggling the options around should keep you within budget. If you need/want a speaker sytem, gaming headset, webcam etc. you will need to make further compromises...or add some funds towards your folks nice offer.

Good luck.

I'm swapping my xbox for gaming PC and was wondering if these specs where decent enough to run games like arma 3 and battlefield or like dayz ?

And if it's worth swapping xbox one for it

A:Are these pc specs good enough for a starter pc and to swap an xbox one for this gaming pc

No, it is an LGA775 platform. It is old and outdated. For Intel look for a LGA1155 platform or better yet the latest LGA1150 platform. I wouldn't even look at LGA1156, which is the platform between LGA775 and LGA1155. Save yourself a headache and only look at the last two CPU socket platforms.

If you already have the platform, there is still life in it. However I wouldn't advise buying into the platform at any price, especially for a gaming rig.

A:New to PC gaming, is this a good build?

Those specs are solid for a Gaming PC. However, I'm positive you will save money if you just built it yourself. Also, that list doesn't include a PSU. So, you will need to pick a PSU for your build. The PSU is one of the most important parts. Thus, you always want to pick something with good build quality.

Is your budget $1275ish?

If you're open to building the machine yourself. I am sure myself or someone here could help you build a machine best for your budget.

A:Is this a good gaming pc build?

Lets start with: What is your overall budget for this build? We might be able to build something better depending on how much you have.
Going with what you currently have listed I would suggest only minor changes to include:
The motherboard is a Dual Channel RAM setup - So you need to find RAM that comes as a pair (2x4GB instead of 1x8GB) for better efficiency.
I would also suggest getting a PSU (power supply) that is from a better known manufacture. Yes the one you selected will work, but the lesser brand ones have the tendency to fail more often (and the one you selected does not have too many good reviews).

Since you already ordered the parts, it does little good now to ask if they are going to work well together.

Your parts selection is low to mid range at best. The mb is not a performance board. Gigabyte makes
fine boards however this is one of their mid-level ie NOT performance boards.
Hard drive. Again WD makes fine drives however NOT the blue series. Only the black series [or preferably a ssd] for a gaming system.
Pw supply. Again corsair makes some fine pw supplies however the one you selected is NOT one of them. For a gaming system only the HX, TX, or AX line.
In short the parts you have selected are fine for an office system ie running office, email, etc. They are NOT fine for a gaming machine and you most likely will be disappointed in their performance or longevity.

And is it hard to actually build a computer.
I've had no experience building a computer before but I'm not bad with computers in general, I just really need to know what I need, where I put them and how do I get it working.
I've got a bit of a budget roughly £600-£750
someone help?

A:What parts would I need to build a good gaming computer?

What are you using the computer for? e.g. gaming (if so which games), video encoding or just general usage?
Does the budget include the monitor and peripherals and do you have any parts you're going to reuse (e.g. DVD drive, hard drive, case, etc.)?

Ok, I am a novice when it comes to hardware. I am looking for a something to Boost my gaming to the point where The Elder scrolls: Oblivion would run fine on my system. Right now everything is factory. So I am wondering what I need to increase my capabilities to that point, Which I stated earlier. I am willing to spend 150$ right now for upgrades, and need to know what I would need for the job. I wrote down my specs when I joined. I dont know if you can see them,but if you need them I will be happy to post them. I am thinking I need a very nice video card and more ram. But how much ram and what video card? And maybe a price on how much I would have to spend. I am taking all recommendations. In advance I appreciate the help and advice.


A:Gaming Specs

I cannot find any information or pics of your system at the instance, so I cannot say anything definite.
These two should be good for you: +
The 4670 will in a few weeks be replaced by 5650, which will perform the same or better, cost a little less and produce less heat, consume less power and have DirectX11 capability (which you don't need/can't even use for Oblivion, but it'll be good to have).
More RAM would help, too, but I really can't know what kind as I can't find any info on things. Please post back in this thread soon so that I get an subscription update and won't forget to get further into this when I have a bit more time.

Yes, insofar as motherboards aren't dependant upon which DirectX API the card is capable of utilising. Graphics card compatibility is dependant upon the slot interface the motherboard uses.
Your MSI board uses PCI-E graphics slot
GTX 260 uses PCI-E graphics slot

The GTX 260 isn't DirectX 11 capable, so why DX11 is an issue is a moot point.

A:New gaming pc specs

Looks like a nice system! Two things came to mind as I had a once over.

1. I'd do some research on that PSU. I haven't heard of that maker (which doesn't say much, there are a LOT of makers I have never heard of). No-name PSUs are a headache. See what some others say about it. It is possible that the one you have chosen is a big name maker, I honestly don't know.

2. Why get a ATI video card? I actually prefer ATI over Geforce myself (the Canadian in me), but if you are going to get an SLI motherboard, you may as well keep your future upgrade options open. Recommend getting a Geforce, so that down the road if you want to stick another in there you can link them up. Why tie your own hands?

Also, another thought... I know I said I only had 2 thoughts but.....

That Venus12, how loud is it? My last computer had a volcanoe heatsink/fan and it was like a jet engine in my living room. Drove me INSANE. :knock:

A:Help for specs on gaming PC

Drop down to a Phenom II X2 55x series CPU and get a more powerful video card instead. Also, what're the specs on the PSU? (brand and model number)

Lastly, I'd recommend the Cooler Master HAF 912 and the NZXT Beta EVO as better cases. Choose whatever fits your budget best, but the HAF 912 is the better of the two IMHO.

I was thinking about buying a LCD monitor but I heard that they arent as great for gaming as CRTs because of refresh rates and clearness. Still my bulky CRT needs to go so i was just wondering wat kind of refresh rates i want and contrast ratio and so on. I use my comp for gaming with games such as CS:S, BF2, AOEIII, and Oblivion as well as for casual use such as web browsing typing up word documents ect. Please help.

A:What specs for gaming monitor?

How much can you spend?
Remember the basic rule: You get what you pay for

There are some great LCD´s on the market, but if you want very good image quality, and no ghosting, you have to pay for that. Also, to get the best image quality, you should use the LCD at its native resolution. Of course you can use it at other resolutions, but the image quality won´t be the best.
Unfortunately, if you want a big monitor (17" or 19") and want to use the native resolution, you need a powerful computer to run the games smoothly at those high resolutions.

If you, like me, don´t have a cutting edge machine, look for a 15" LCD. Its native resolution its 1024x768. That should tax too much your machine.

A:Help Required for Gaming Specs

I would recommend at least 4GB of RAM (any more than 4GB of RAM you will need a 64bit version of Windows).

Any reasonable Nvidia or ATI graphics card will do.

Although if you're doing this in the next two years I would recommend waiting before you buy because the price of everything will drop and the speed will increase.

Processor wise I'd go for an Intel i5 at the minimum or any other Intel quad core equivalent (you might be able to get away with a mid to high end i3), although the chances are an i5 will be considered slow in a couple of years so buy it nearer the time of building if you have the chance, it'll be cheaper and faster.

I hope this helps.

Hi everyone, I'm looking at getting my first computer specifically for gaming; but I haven't got much of an idea of what specs I need and what I can get for the amount of money I want to spend.

I'm wanted to spend around £500-£600. I'd want to be able to play new games and ones which will be coming out in the relative future (mmorpgs/fps etc) and games such as skyrim, battlefield, hitman, crysis 3, gta & far cry 3 -which I know require a good graphics card etc. would it make sense getting windows 8 or not?

can anyone give me details as to what specs I need to look for and/or recommend me any computers in the £500-£600 range?

Windows 7 is probably a better choice. It doesnt matter though. This is what I put together: Add in the Corsair TX650V2 PSU, I forgot to include it in the cart. The cart is on Amazon by the way. It is a bit over budget, but it will play your games at very high, if not max settings.

Video Card: Zotac GeForce GTX 580
Motherboard: Gigabyte Socket 1155 CPU Z68XP-UD3
Using windows 7 64 Bit
Power supply: Force PS-890

My optimal resolution is 1920x1080

So i've tried The Witcher 2 on it, and it lags ALOT, even on low settings. Considering my specs it should do just fine on High settings.

I also tried Modern warfare 2, It does just fine on low resolutions such as 1280x800. but when i turn it up to 1920x1080 it lags heavily! I dont understand why my PC would lag on a low demanding game such as Modern warfare 2.

I updated all my video card drivers. I went to windows update and got the latest update.

I'm not sure if you have gaming in mind or not so I will go ahead and say this. It's not a gaming machine that is for sure. The processor might be alright for light gaming. But that GPU is a budget card that might give you 30 FPS on low settings. But other than that it would be a good general purpose PC for web browsing, word processing, and light image/video editing.

A:Specs On My First Build Attempt

What do I think?

I think that your specs are VERY good . I think it may be a little expensive though, but if you don't care, I certainly don't care. Yep practically any game will run at max settings at high speeds. Good luck on your build, I just built my first one just a few days ago, and I learned a lot. I used an nforce4 ultra, 3000+, and a 6600gt, and this works great.

I am a noob when it comes to stuff like this, but I have a problem.

I have two computers,
One of them have a 32MB card, around 234MB ram or something similiar and around 2.9GHZ.
The other one have a 64MB (card?), around 512MB ram and over 2.9GHZ.

On the computer with 32MB I can play Counter-strike and games that require 16MB card & 32MB ram with great performance, it's fast and it dosen't "hang" or "act laggy/slow".

But on the good computer, even though with good specs - games like counter-strike is very slow, it lags and you can hardly shoot or anything. Even with the games like that are old it lags.

On the good computer, it says "Intel Graphic Card" but on the other it's a SiS.

I don't understand why it's like this?

Anyone got any ideas?

A:Slow even though it has good specs.

Probably because the SiS is "on-board graphics" and not a "graphics card" at all?

On Board graphics is basically fine for business/email/surfing, but not for games.

You can usually tell externally if you have a "card" or not by the location of the Video socket on the rear of the PC. If it is grouped with the serial ports etch and oriented lengthways along the tower case (longest dimension) it's "on board"

If its at right angles to the longest dimension and in a slot, its a "card".

A:Future PC Specs .... good, bad?


First, I think you should upgrade from a normal 17" LCD monitor to a widescreen LCD monitor that's about 19". You'd be satisfied with that.

If you want your PC to be future-proof and be good for years to come, get about 2GB of RAM (2 x 1GB sticks). 1GB of memory is barely cutting it these days.

If you're building a PC around this time, a Core 2 Duo should be the optimal choice. Those other Intels you see that are cheaper and faster are not Core 2 Duos. You should pick a Core 2 Duo, because (to answer your question) yes, a Core 2 Duo is "faster" (not in the sense of clock speed, but other factors).

For your habit of multitasking, you just need enough RAM and a dual-core Processor, which should allow you to do many things at once.

For the motherboard, I would recommend a nice ASUS motherboard. Definately look for SLI support for future expansion. Make sure the chipset supports the C2D.

If your budget for a graphics card is around $500, then you should definately get a DX10 card. A GeForce 8800 GTS would be nice.

For your power supply, get something around the 600 Watt range, since your PC is going to be pretty high-end. With your budget, you should have enough money to get a high-end PSU, like the ones with more than two +12V rails, modular cabling, fancy lights, etc.

Finally, tell us what website you will get your stuff from, so we can provide a direct link to a product suggestion. Also, this being your first build, you should do quite a bit of research first (mainly regarding the products, since the "how to build it" part is pretty easy). An informed buyer is more likely to be a satisfied buyer.

Good luck with your build

WOW, thats a nice build!

Although I gotta ask, what is it you do that would require the 4x8GB memory modules? Unless you are doing something spectacular, 2x8GB would probably be more than you need for a very long time.

Since you have chosen a mSATA SSD, I take it you have done your homework and know the motherboard supports mSATA. I had to double check to make sure you wasn't making a mistake. As for the 1 SSD option instead of 1SSD/1HDD, you can make that decision at a later date if you so choose.

A:Wondering if these specs will be alright for a new gaming computer?

Firstly, hello and welcome to TechSpot.

Your pretty much spot on with your thoughts regarding gaming computers - Though with the CPUs you need to consider the number of cores (and threads), and the clock speed.

The AMD Phenom 1055T is an outstanding CPU for overclocking, though its unlikely you'll realistically find games able to use all 6 cores - That said, more is better as far as I am concerned.

That said, I don't like the hard disk. For a gaming computer you need to be having a 7,200RPM speed hard disk, or a SSD. You could also probably get a better GPU for the same money as well.

Your best bet to be honest, is to let us know where your from, and your total budget, along with what you need (e.g. do you need a display, keyboard and mouse as well?) and we can then "build" you something thats perfect as a gaming computer.

A:Advice on new monitor -- what good specs should I look for?

If your switching from a 1900 x1600 to a 1920 x1080 you will not notice much of a diffrence in quality. It will be slightly lower quality though.

Resolution is propably the most important things to look out for.

Higher resolutions are always better but will make your graphics card work MUCH harder in games and lower your framerates.

Response time is not so important imo, lower is better, High response times can cause input lag and an effect known as ghosting, Though in real life its barely noticible.

Im not too sure about led vs lcd to be honest. Though IPS panels are considered to be the best type of LCD as far as i know.

Heres a great and cheap ips for an example.

There's not going to be a huge difference AMD v Intel as long as the processor is fast enough. I would suggest looking at the system requirements for the game you want to play and then go from there.

A:Solved: [Question] Are these pc specs good

Looking at those specs it appears we are talking about a laptop here?

If that is the case, there isn't much you can update apart from the RAM. You might find it supports other CPUs but you are unlikely to get any really significant performance boost. One of the main weak points is the graphics, a 310M is a really low end graphics processor that isn't much use for anything other than Windows, Office and net browsing in my opinion. However, being a laptop you can't do anything about it (very few laptops support changing graphics cards now).

I have low framerate when playing Napoleon: Total War on semi-high, which I think with these specs I should be able to play with ease... I lag on 1080p Youtube videos, for Christ sake. I have formated it twice within that period.

Here are my specs:

What I think could be wrong (will update if I remember anything):

1. The hard drive is very old, 6+ years
2. I haven't vacuumed my computer for months

Damn, Napoleon: Total War is much smoother without AVG running in the background...

hope you can help me on this one

A:Slow computer with good specs

You should be smokin , maybe uninstall AVG and see if it improves.

Is it Defraged ?

So is it possible to build pc with these parts?

Sorry I'm from lithuania and my online shops are lithuanian laguage. But Names of parts is in english

A:Build specs. Can you build it?

The issue I see: your mobo supports "ONLY" 4th gen CPU and your CPU of choice is a 5th gen (gen=generation). Even though the mobo is socket 1150, same as CPU, there may bay some firmware incompatibilities. Not sure if there is a BIOS update for the mobo to support 5th gen CPU's, which I doubt it does.

So you may want to consider a new mobo that supports intel's 5th gen series CPU's. Also; there's no mention of a PSU (power supply). I would also move up to a GTX 970's just a better GPU period.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Did you change the thermal paste ?
You should if overheating was an issue for a while.

A:I'm Building A custom Comp, Are these specs good?

I assume you are building this for gaming?
Whatever you are building it for the power supply is junk. Corsair, Seasonic. PC Power & Cooling or FPS 1250w to 1500w.
Dual video cards are a royal pain and a definite overkill.
I would also go with DDR3 1600 (or greater)
Why do you need dial up? Do you live where there is no cable or DSL?
Add an SSD drive for your OS and some games.
WD black or RE for storage.
I would also go for an Asus or Gigabyte motherboard.

I am going to do the student windows 7 upgrade from my current vista. I only have 2.5gb of ram right now and was wondering if I should upgrade to 32 or 64. I am probably going to be upgrading to 4gb of ram in the next month or so, but in the meantime would my system suffer from only having 2.5gb in 64bit? For example would I still be able to play games like starcraft 2 without taking a huge performance hit over what I have right now on my 32bit vista.

thank you

system specs
AMD 3.4ghz X3
2.5gb RAM
9600gt OC
500gb hard drive

A:Are my specs good enough for Win7 Prof 64bit?

You ram usage would go up, but I think you will be fine. You'll probably get between 35-45% on idle.
