It is, but typically if I'm gonna buy everything all at once I'll go for a strong CPU and a weak GPU and swap the GPU at a later date. That's because the CPU is more important than the GPU. Otherwise, you should beef up the GPU and buy your parts over the course of 2-3 months to budget your money properly and get what you want rather than only what you can afford.

That GPU is way too weak for a 700-800$ build...

BBG has already blown any and all credibility he might have had. I doubt anybody is surprised by that comment.
"I saw [Twilight: Eclipse] in theaters with a girl I was dating at the time. I spent more time staring at my toes and wiggling them than I did watching this abomination. When Edward proposed to Blank Face, I finally looked up with a revelation.
I blurted out loud, in a dead silent theater full of teenage girls on opening night "Wait a minute, Edward has no blood flow. How does he get an erection?" I heard several men laughing, and had several girls turn and stare at me.

I did not get laid that night." - Berengier817

I'm afraid I don't know too much about computer specs but isn't that kind of dumb when it comes to most PC games. If I remember right most PC games are ports of console games, which requires more GPU rather then CPU, so why would you essentially stack CPU when any game you give your PC would practically run terribly.

Not sure if I am correct on this, I would appreciate if someone were to correct me on this.
If you found me helpful give me some +Rep :)

I took advice from Searz and an IT friend of mine about 3 years back. This PC of mine is still banging out high/ultra quality on just about all demanding graphics games.

Only cost me about £700. Searz really knows his stuff.

What are you talking about? They're CPU games, those consoles don't have anything a GTX 460 can't run in terms of graphics.

Like I said, I don't know too much about computer specs and such.

I feel like searz is basically mobafire's token 4chan user: Slightly arrogant/elitist, but absolutely brilliant
