Hey is this a good setup to run current games such as minecraft, Amnesia, GTA, etc.
here is the specs
CPU: INTEL CORE I5-2500K
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS P8P67 PRO REV 3.1
GRAPHICS CARD: GIGABYTE GTX 560 TI OC 900MHZ 1GB
MEMORY: 8GB CORSAIR VENGEANCE CL9 DDR3-1600 RAM
STORAGE: SAMSUNG 64GB SSD 830
WD CAVIAR BLUE 500GB 7200RPM HDD
POWER SUPPLY: CORSAIR ENTHUSIAST SERIES CMPSU-650TX
CASE: FRACTAL DESIGN CORE 3000

I am not very good at building computers so if there is anything that can improve this please tell me. My budget is ~1000$
Thanks

That setup should be fine for PC gaming but if your wanting to boot from your ssd and run your games off it maybe go for a bigger one as some games from places like steam can be up to 10gb. plus your budget is probably high enough to do so. :)
