Hello! I am building my first gaming PC on PortaTech using Barebones computers and I was wondering if these specs look good for gaming?
Barebones w/ Intel Core i7 (Socket 2011)
w/ Core i7 4930K (6 x 3.9GHz CPU-12MB Cache)
Asus P9X79 LE
Systems - Cooling Package 1
8GB DDR3 1600MHz (1 x 8GB - Single Module)
64GB SATA3 Solid State Drive (SSD)
1TB 7200RPM SATA3 6gb/sec- Hard Drive
NZXT Gaming Mid Tower Case
850 Watt - 4x PCIe 6 Pin Connectors (Compat w/ High End Video Cards)
Windows 7 Home Premium
12x Blu-Ray Combo Drive
nVidia GeForce GTX650 - 2GB
Standard - Build, Burn-in, Test & Ship Out in Approx 3 to 5 Business Days
Barebones - 1 Year
In total this is $1640. I just want to know if everything here seems reasonable for a gaming computer. I really would not like to spend any more than I have to as this alone is going over my budget, but you gotta do what you gotta do I guess. Games I am really looking to play are Sims 4, Minecraft on highest settings, The Amnesias, Skyrim. I really don't give a crap about FPS games like Battlefield and Call of Duty so I really don't need a computer to run extensive servers and such. Mainly just 1-player games.
