    Building a gaming pc!

    Hey there

    i already have a MSI nvidia GTX460 cyclone 1gb card

    im looking to build a mid range gaming system around it

    i was looking at the Smart - Intel Core i5 2500K - Overclocked Bundle - Overclocked 4.5Ghz bundle from here, and was wondering would this play games like bad company 2? World of warcraft cata? and say battlefield 3 when it comes out

    i intend to put WoW, and my OS (win7 64bit ) on an SSD


    will this system be suffice and whats the 2500k like? im guessing with that sort of overclock its going to be great?

    Considering that even a £50 to £80 would be fine for modern games even a Core i5 2500k running at stock speeds will be more than enough for a while.

    More than enough CPU grunt there.
    The 460 is a great mid-range card, but in that system it will be the limiting factor, not the CPU.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.
