      A new pc..

      Sorry if this isn't supposed to be here, but I wanted to ask some people who know more about pc's than I do. :P

      So I'm going to have to get rid of my current laptop because of circumstances, and I also used it for gaming. So I've been looking around some websites where you can build your own pc and I came up with this. This is around 850. Do you guys think this will be sufficient to play the newer games? (Currently playing starcraft 2 and black ops). I don't mind running games on lower resolution. Or any other suggestions are always welcome.

      ATI HD 5770 1024MB DDR5 ASUS
      4096MB DDR3 Werkgeheugen Kingston
      Standaard koeling
      Intel Core i5-2400 3.1GHz
      1Gbit netwerkkaart
      Asus Motherboard P8H67-M PRO (rev.3)
      550 Watt Voeding
      Gamers Behuizing Rood
      2 jaar carry-in (gratis service)
      Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit (32Bit op aanvraag)
      DVD Brander Sony Optiarc SATA
      1000 GB SataII HDD Hitachi 7200RPM
      51-in-1 Cardreader
      Windows office 2010

      If I were to upgrade something, what would you recommend?
      Upgrade the motherboard to
      Asus 1155 Sabertooth P67 (rev.3)[+ 98,00]? Or

      Upgrade the processor to one of these three:
      Intel Core i5-2500K 3,3GHz Overclocking[+ 31,00]
      Intel Core i7-2600 3,4GHz[+ 123,00]
      Intel Core i7-2600K 3,4GHz Overclocking[+ 139,00]

      Or upgrade the graphics card to one of the following 2?
      Nvidia GTX560 DDR5 1024MB[+ 120,00]
      ATI Radeon 6950 1GB HIS[+ 130,00]

      Well, with 4GB RAM, a 5770, and 3.1 GHz processor you should be fine to run newer games. If anything will be holding you back in the future it would probably be your RAM, you may want to consider buying two more gigabytes worth. The rest of the system looks up to date though, I wouldn't recommended putting anymore money into your box until you have to. If you're looking to spend some money though, which I is common, then you may want to look into an additional monitor to compliment your graphics card. I along with all of my friends love running two monitors to be able to browse builds, Facebook, videos, and music while also being able to play. You won't be able to interact with the second screen with most video games as the game confines the mouse to its screen, but it's still handy.
