Well its gonna be my 1st time building a gaming pc. I have seen my friends build them and I had kinda helped so I know how it goes.
I have also watch many youtube videos and read up on many tutorials. :lol:
How do you think this would do with some of the games nowadays like crysis,farcry2,cod5,etc....? I would like to have other things to play besides KOL
Intel Core 2 Duo e8500 3.16ghz
EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Super Clocked Edition (55nm)
G.Skill 4GB DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) 2x 2gb Ram
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250gb 7200rpm SATA 3.0
Samsung 22x DVD+-R Burner (plan to upgrade and get a blu-ray drive also since I have lots of blu-ray dvd's)
Rosewill Stallion Series 600W
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Sound Card
Antec 300 Mid Tower
Windows Vista Home Basic <_<
I do not plan to do any overclocking until I do more research on it and learn about that more later.
You think it would bottle neck?
P.S. the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU cooler already has pre applied thermal compound on it. I dont put anymore compound on the cpu rigth? Since its already has a pre applied thermal comound on the CPU Cooler itself? Just mount it on? Kinda silly question but I wanna make sure since this is gonna be my 1st time trying on my own. :unsure:
Any tips and help would be greatly appreciated!
