Nice little custom PC?

Question by Nahian I: Nice little custom PC?
Hi Guys! I’m planning on building a nice little budget pc (within $ 500) with the following specs:

-Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I32120
-MSI H61M-P31 (G3) LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
-G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBRM
-MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
-LG DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model GH24NS90 – OEM
-HEC 6K28BB8F Black 0.8mm SECC Steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
-Corsair Nova Series 2 CSSD-V30GB2A 2.5″ 30GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
-COOLER MASTER GX 450W RS450-ACAAD3-US 450W ATX12V v2.31 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Note: The HDD is an additional to my already owned 40 gb sata hdd, so i guess 70 gigs total.

1. Will this build be good enough for everyday use? (watching videos, using Microsoft Office, browsing, etc. Nothing too demanding)
2. Can this build run the following games: BF3, MW3, Saints Row 3 on LOWEST SETTINGS? As in, does it meet the minimum requirements for those games, and other games like it? (Lowest settings becasue I just want to play with friends, graphics dont matter to me that much)

THX in advance

I don’t know the system requirements for those games, but the card will probably be able to run them on low settings, maybe even medium for one or two of them. But I should tell you, you might want to consider getting the Intel Celeron G530 instead. Yes, I said Celeron. In Maximum PC, they built a gaming computer for around $ 500 and it had the Celeron G530 but the thing is, it’s dual-core! Just not hyperthreading and some other things, but if you have a decent graphics card, which I think you do, you should be able to play games reasonably well I believe and it’s about $ 75 cheaper. But, if you want to put those $ 75 to something else in this computer, I would get a faster graphics card. Then you could play on medium, and I know you said you didn’t care about low or medium but you would probably like it if it was medium, right? Well, you could get the AMD 7750 (which they used in Maximum PC), which has 1 GB of GDDR5 VRAM, and it would run those games much better than the 6450 or you could just get the 6670 DDR3, which is only $ 30 more, and could probably play all of them on medium. (don’t take my word for it though)

    Need to increase your hdd to at least 500 gb for gaming storage , looking at the specs i see why not it can run games mention at low settings , bf3 might have some lagging because it uses a different gaming engine with that graphic card , your pc does meet most games minimum requirements

    Based on my experience It won’t take so long to eat up the hard disk space. Maybe you should add the SSD Space so your PC will run fast and efficient and provide a lot of space for data storage and ability to play games at good performance. If you have some more money I guess You should add 256gb ssd. I guess It’s quite optimal for nowadays usage. If you need some recommendation about the 256ssd to buy you can take a look at 256gbssd.org for top 10 Best SSD to Buy.
    Hope my opinion help
