    I would get an i5 3570k. Or if you wanted to, go for a 4670k, but if you do that make sure you get a z87 chipset mobo. Also, I would advise that you get either a 7970 or a 770. Both are stronger for just a few more dollars. The 770 is a little stronger than the 7970, but can't overclock as well. THe 7970 is a little weaker, comes with 4 games, and is a better overclocker.

    Its alright and the graphic card is good. But a word of advice. Remember that tho all components matter, when it comes to gaming 99% of the effort comes down to the graphic card. Most gamers buy an I3 processor and use fairly low priced components, but spend buck loads on the actual graphic card. So tho you mention all of the specs written here.

    *MAX out on the best graphic card possible

    *Then try to max out ram

    *Then SSD

    *And finally the case

    I didnt say the processor coz even a dual core is sufficient.

    hope that helps

    Its a decent build. It will play most games at max settings pretty smoothly. However, you should get atleast 1TB of HDD, so that you don't get into storage problems later. Everything else is fine.
