Gaming PC build

by natem1095 - 12/4/12 10:27 AM

Looking to get a budget build gaming PC. I put something together on new egg for about $565 plus another $100 for Windows 7. Here's what i got:

-ASUS M5A88-V EVO AM3+ AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

-ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

-AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor

-Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT4G3D1609DS1S00

-Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

-CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power

-COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

If anyone can find anything better than that that may be cheaper please let me know.
Also, i do not know if the graphics card will work with that motherboard so if you can tell me if it does, that would be cool. I'm a pretty casual gamer, i want to be able to play games like WoW, Planetside 2, GuildWars2, etc. all in high fps with decent settings. So i'm just looking for something that will be affordable (under 650 w/ windows 7) to play with right now until i can upgrade.

p.s. if anyone can put a completely different build together for me for less or about the same but just with better components. GO FOR IT!
