Hello, I'm going to build a gaming PC. I'm not looking to get great fps, but I'd like around 35.
So without further ado here is my build.

CPU: Core i5 3330 3.1ghz
GPU: MSI power edition OC 650 Ti
MoBo: ASrock h77m
PSU: RAIDMAX 530w
RAM: 8 gb
HHD: 500gb
OS: win 8

I'm looking to playing skyrim, bf3, LoL, PLanetside 2 on medium to high.

Thanks

Some key questions that we're going to need answered before we make suggestions:

1) What is your budget?

2) Are there any additional periperhals (mouse, keyboard, monitor, etc.) that you'll need?

3) Do you happen to live near a Microcenter?

4) How soon do you plan on building?

Someone will eventually post about dropping the CPU down to an i3 for your budget. It will work fine,

Ha! And I was going to suggest a move up to the 3570k. He's got 700 bones to play with. More than enough for a real proc.

I'd say get a 3440P or something and spend the difference on a beefier card if possible.

The problem is that the op has $700 which includes a keyboard, mouse, monitor on the total unless he meant that he already has them or has a separate budget for them. If he needs them as well then he'll have to step dow n to an i3.
