New build input needed guys? thanks
I asked a similar question the past but I have made some changes to my build and was wondering what you think
Intel® Core™i5 Quad Core Processor i5-3570K (3.4GHz) 6MB Cache
ASUS® P8Z77-M: MICRO-ATX, USB 3.0, SATA 6GBs, ATI®CrossFireX
16GB KINGSTON HYPERX GENESIS DUAL-DDR3 2133MHz X.M.P(4 x 4GB KIT)
4GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 690 DUAL GPU - 3 x DVI-I, 1 x mDP
Memory - 1st Hard Disk
180GB INTEL® 520 SERIES SSD, SATA 6 Gb/s (upto 550MB/sR | 520MB/sW)
2nd Hard Disk
1TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s HDD 7200RPM 32MB CACHE
1st DVD/BLU-RAY Drive
24x DUAL LAYER DVD WRITER ±R/±RW/RAM
CORSAIR 1050W PRO SERIES™ HX1050-80 PLUS® SILVER MODULAR (£158)
TITAN FENRIR EVO EXTREME HEATPIPE CPU COOLER (£39)
ONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit w/SP1 - inc DVD & Licence
All comes to £2,100/ $3,302.2 with other things like 3 year warrants, anti virus, heandset, keyboard and mouse all thrown in.
I need to know whether it would be able to play games on max seetings, lik Crysis 2, BF3, Skyrim, Shogun total war, will it be able to play them on ultra if not how well will it perform?
Another question is, is this a good build? and what are your thoughts on it
Thank you for anything you have to say?
Are you planning to overclock the cpu? I would consider doing a few changes, the GTX 690 is more than £900 but you can get a very similar performance with a GTX 670 in SLI and cheaper (I think is more than £300 cheaper).

I'd consider the 2nd hard drive as a caviar black since it is faster than the standard HDD you selected, if you are not planning in overclocking the cpu (not really needed for gaming) then you can get the i5-3570 with the triple copper heatpipe cpu cooler. Faster memory is not going to bring a noticeable benefit when gaming, you could get the samsung 1333mhz or kingston 1600mhz.

Something similar to this should be good. If your going to edit video + overclock up the ram to 16gb and get the 3570k cpu.
