Default New Build (400)

Had enough of my basic laptop, can't run any decent games.

Totalled this for 400

Asus GTX 660 DirectCU II OC 2GB GDDR5

Intel Pentium G860 3.0Ghz Socket 1155 3MB L3 Cache

MSI H61M-P31 (G3) Socket 1155 VGA DVI 8 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard

Corsair 8GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory

Sharkoon T9 Case (Green)

Toshiba 1TB SATA 6GB/s 32MB Cache

500w PSU (Can't remember exact Model)

Is this a decent spec for the price?
Can anyone give me a performance estimate for an average game?

(Bit of a noob in terms of building my own spec)

You should go for an i3 instead. Take advantage of hyper-threading.

Thanks for the reply. I think that's what ill do which bring it up to 445. Can you recommend anything that I can save on. Trying to get below 430 without changing the Case and Graphics Card.

No I can't. Those are some decent stuff as it is.
