You should have little trouble maxing out most games with decent frame-rates.

I dont want to be ass, but that Cooler Master Elite is total trash, it will blow if you try to pull more than some 450W from it. You can OC cpu to 4Ghz and even little card OC but thats all, do not push it above 400W and better - do not OC at all or buy some better psu

Yes, I still max out many games(not all) at decent framerates.


It's was a good gpu, but I've upgraded to something a little better.


The HD 3870x2 was a solid card.

Your motherboard may be too weak to handle a 8320 try updating the motherboard BIOS to see if it helps. If not you need to get a 970 chipset motherboard

No I would not recommend it. Since due to unable to hit the 4ghz with turbo boost i would not recommend it. If you have updated the BIOS turn on Turbo Boost and see if it can hit 4ghz.

This is a very underrated processor for the price it practically a slightly slower cpu than the 8350 but the price difference is like 30 usd. Guess that the hype of the 8350 is stronger than this one.

My guess is because of that 4.0GHZ number the 8350 has. This is a great processor though. But gotta say, I'm glad I went for the 8350. :D
