Will this desktop play any and all games at max graphics?

Question by : Will this desktop play any and all games at max graphics?
Hi, I have a custom build picked out, before I pay for it, please let me know if it will play all games, at Max Graphics, with 60+ FPS. If not, let me know what FPS it would be on the highest settings of the most demanding game. Thanks!

Case – Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

CPU – Intel i5 3570k 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo boost)

GPU – Radeon HD 7950 3GB


PSU – 630W

1.5TB HDD, 5900 RPM Sata 6.0 GB/s

Motherboard – BIOSTAR TZ77XE3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel
Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

CD drive – ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner – Bulk – OEM

I gave all the components to see if I need to change something out. The case, I picked it out because it has a very good rating, but am unsure if I should get a better mid tower, or maybe get a full tower. Thank you all in advance!!!
Forgot to say, it will be single monitor. I will also do some programming, so I’m not sure whether to get 8 or 16 GB of ram.
Thanks for everyones comments. I’m thinking of going for one of the 3770 instead of the 3570, or another similiar i7 model. I’m guessing its the cores, threads and cache that matter the most? I know obviously the GHz matters, but between the two theres only 0.1GHz increase, while the threads and cache are significantly increased.

It will play games, not at highest graphics though. For highest graphics, look for something with an i7 processor or an AMD Phenom and at least 16gb of RAM. Your GPU is fine and hard drive is more than enough for games.

    it shouldn’t have any problems playing at med graphics but i doubt it could play all games at max with 60fps. and that hard drive seems a bit slow to me

    It would do it however i personally like EVGA GTX series such as the 560 or 570. Your CPU should be able to handle that but might lag a little with your graphics on max settings. I have an i7 six core with a GTX 560 and play games like battlefield 3 and skyrim at max settings and i still lag sometimes, im pretty sure it depends on your connection and the severs, but your build looks badass and would do everything HD for sure.

    Looks like a great build you should have no problems running all games on high and maxing out most.

    I would shop around for a better case if you can, get a case with fans in the front, back and top for good cooling. Make sure all the fans are 120mm or bigger so the noise level stays low. Also you might consider an aftermarket heatsink and fan for your i7, so you can crank up the OC.

    You might also consider an SSD drive as your bottleneck will be your HDD, I have an SSD and the speed is incredible. Its well worth the extra $ .

    Very nice build from what i can see. Of course, can’t comment really on the PSU because the all important brand info is not included.

    Frames per second in games is primarily dependent on the power of the GPU. The 7950 is very powerful and should be able to play all games on maximum graphics without any problem. The CPU is only relevant for frames per second in that it has to be fast enough to keep up with the GPU and not bottleneck it. The i5 3570K is certainly that.
    The only other significant factor for frames per second in games is the amount of RAM you have. There only needs to be enough of it and 8GB is plenty because games today don’t even use 4GB of RAM. I know this because i have all sorts of applications open on one screen when i game and game on the other and RAM usage during those games (with a few minor other things open like email, a couple web tabs, some music and the apps i use to monitor temperature and % workload for CPU & GPU) never exceeds 3.5GB.
    The speed of the RAM (in MHz) matters very little. Faster RAM means a few extra points in benchmarks. It’s nothing one can actually notice.

    Getting an i7 will not help frames per second in games compared to the CPU you’ve already chosen. You’re right in saying that it’s the threads that matter most and in the case of gaming, the hyperthreading of the i7 will not even be used. The i7 might be faster when programming. I’m not sure about that because i don’t know if programming applications are designed to actually use the hyperthreading feature but games are not. So buying a CPU which has hyperthreading and a mere 0.1 increase in GHz is a waste for gaming.

    The most graphically demanding game i know of right now is Battlefield 3 and my 6970 runs it maxed out quite well. Your 7950, which is about 30% faster than my card should run it easily. I can’t really predict actual frame rates but it will be extremely playable.
