lol NO that rig will suck for gaming.
WTF? thats like the best that you can have at the moment(except for your ram and your cpu cooler, but they are both pretty good)...you didnt know that when you bought it or what? lmao you have a 37 inch monitor and you want to know what we think, im sorry...i cant help but chuckle.
i would have changed a few things, but as far as cpu/mobo/graphics...that stuff is hot.

nice system btw

get crucial ballistix ram and u should have gotten a tuniq tower 120 for the price u spent on the zalman cooler, zalman is like mercedes benz in the pc market, luxury brand, the tuniq tower 120, will give better temps and is real cheap at svc.com... 43$ i think?

Woah...i'm glad you could build a pc with such a strict budget...LOL JK...Anyway, nice pc. Can we please see some pictures because I'm wondering if you really have this. (by this, i mean no offense) When someone comes on a forum and has a CRAZY pc like yours, people start to question if you are telling the truth. We don't want another Khan.

Also you should get a good mouse and keyboard if you want to play your games without your hands hurting. I recommend the Razor mice and keyboards. I have a razor diamondback mouse and the reclusa keyboard, its definitely worth it, I can get headshots so easily now cause of my mouse response. Also they match my blue case with their blue LEDs. Just a little option for ya.
