Should I build a gaming computer with these specs?

Question by : Should I build a gaming computer with these specs?
I’ve bought a GPU and PSU recently and I realized I also needed a new CPU… So instead of just upgrading I decided to go and build a new computer. So i returned everything I bought and I am now willing to start fresh. These are the things in my shopping cart in right now:

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5″ Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Case: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Motherboard: ASUS F1A75-M FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

GPU: ZOTAC AMP! ZT-50702-10M GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

PSU: APEVIA ATX-AQ700W-BK 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7T-12GBRH

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDE00ZFBGRBOX

DVD Drive: ASUS Black Blu-ray Drive SATA Model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS – OEM

***** If I need anything else please include it in your answers, and if something will not be compatible or if it will bottleneck, PLEASE put your response below. Thank you so much in advance!

P.S. This is what the cost totaled up to: $ 947.92 (9 Items)
I will use this computer for extremely intense games, such as BF3, Starcraft 2, on maxed out settings, and I am wondering if this will be able to handle Marine Arena Custom Map in Starcraft 2!

    The AMD 1100T is a poor choice for a gaming processor and for all around use. The Intel Core i5 2400 or i5 2500K will wipe the floor with it for around the same price, just a few $ $ more maybe

    You certainly do not need 12 GB of RAM. 4 GB is fine for gaming. 8 GB is more than enough

    Take the money you save off of dropping the RAM and get an i5 2500K + a P67 socket 1155 motherboard

    Hard drive is very good though. If you want to play high end games like that, consider a better video card like the 6950 Radeon or 560 GTX Ti version

    Get a better brand PSU like Corsair or Antec. 600 watts will be plenty

    EDIT: The X4 955 named below would even be a better choice than the 1100T, for somewhat less money since 99% of games cannot use more than 4 cores. And drop the RAM way down, and put it into a better video card which is the most important factor here

    EDIT: Aye Bee, is that why the 2500K beats it on every benchmark?

    Everything is perfect! will run BF3 on max setting with 30+ FPS.

    Also many people will say that your processor sucks, but dont believe them! i have Phenom X4 955 and it runs perfectly any game!!! + the games more rely on video card than processor!

    Agreed with dude above me.. The GPU brand is shady and if youre buying a 560, go with the EVGA ones. Excellent rating.

    However, i have to tell you something. THERE IS NO WAY IN THIS WORLS YOU WILL PLAY BF3 MAXED WITH THAT CARD ALONE!!!! You need atleast two of those cards in SLI.

    My friend has an ATI thats quite good and once Crysis 2 got updates to DX11, he lags like crap on highest res and maxed settings. Starcraft two will max out without a synche, but if you think your going to be an EXTREME gamer and a graphics whore… lol…. than i reocmmend atleast two 560’s or two ATI 6970’s which are much cheaper….

    It won’t work! You have the wrong motherboard paird up with the wrong processor… on top of that you have memory kit that suited for a Socket 1366 processor.

    Get this instead

    Ditch the 1100T and get an Intel Core i5. The Core i5-2400 will whoop the 1100T in gaming. If you want to overclock then get the Core i5-2500K. Sadly, the 2500K 4 cores are just as fast as the 1100T six cores. Since games only use 2-4 cores then this makes the Core i5 a better processor.

    Get a Socket 1155 z68 or p67 motherboard for the processor.

    Get an 8gb (2x4gb) memory kit. DDR3-1600 1.5v memory is the best. The G.Skill Ripjaws X or Corsair Vengeance is the best.

    I’d spend a little more on a power supply. Apevia makes junk. Get a Corsair, Antec, or XFX 80plus power supply. believe it or not their 650w power supply would give you more power than a Apevia.

    If you can afford it then get a GTX 560ti

    Not sure about you MB doesn’t seem to support AM3 socket processors

    it’s only for the fusion series.. and only supports up to 4 cores.

    Why don’t you get one of the new FX 8 cores? similar prices and heard they r really nice

    Your Vcard is also really good for gaming , but chose another brand , Asus or EvGA

    Choose a better brand for the PSU , corsair.

    i5 2500 will not whoop your 1100t , don’t care about those fan boys.

    Just loose the extra Ram and get the new BULLDOZER
