I've been putting together a PC for the last few weeks, nothing amazing but quenches my gaming thirst nicely.

Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3470 (Stock Cooler)
Motherboard: ASRock B75 Pro3-M
RAM: 4GB Single DIMM of G.Skill Ripjaws 1600Mhz
GPU: ASUS Radeon 7850 2GB overclocked to 1050Mhz
Hard Drive: 250GB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM
Power Supply: XFX Pro 450w
Case: EZCOOL
OS: Windows 8 Pro 64-Bit

Future upgrade plans:

x2 60GB SSD's in RAID0 or a single 120GB
Another 4GB G.Skill RAM
1TB HDD

So far this machine is running like a charm. Got a free download of Tomb Raider with the Graphics card and gameplay is very smooth with settings turned up max @ 1080P



Also plan on getting a more gaming optimized Keyboard + mouse sometime, although it's not a priority.

Thanks. The case is ok for the price I paid, average build quality. Overall I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

That system unit is freaking epic cool :D, even future upgrades is meets better but for your case you don't need to buy anymore as its an A+ for me.

+ you can give a shot for Windows 8 if necessarily ;)

Yeah didn't even think of it. Are you actually using Windows 8 on that new PC?

Thanks James. As for Windows 8, I have a license for it but at the moment I'm more comfortable with Windows 7.

I've added the Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard to my setup.

Overall I'm quite happy with it. LED backlight not as bright as I would have liked but for the price I can't complain. Keys have a nice feel to them and the dedicated macro keys are very useful.
