    Would this setup be any good?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125440 (299$ - Newegg.com)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116504 (229$ - same)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157298 (119$ - same)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233186 (50$ - same)

    So that's approximately 700$. I have Antec Sonata III as the tower and a 500W power supply.. Should I buy new power supply and some cooling system if I want to overclock?

    edit: Sorry posted only the links..

    - Gigabyte Geforce 660TI 2GB, graphics card
    - Intel Core i5 3570k - 3.4ghz, processor
    - AsRock Fatal1ty, motherboard
    - Corsair Vengance 2x4gb, memory.

    Not bad, what PSU do you have? "a 500w PSU" doesn't suffice, we need a name

    An aftermarket cooler for the CPU would be best if you're going to OC. How much do you want to spend on it?
    CPU: I5 2500K @4.5ghz (1.285v), CPU cooler: Corsair H100 push/pull GPU: MSI R7970 Lightning @1200Mhz, Case: Corsair 650D, Ram: 16GB Corsair vengeance, Mobo: Asrock Z77 Extreme4, PSU: Corsair TX650M, SSD: Samsung 830 128GB, HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB SPU: Xonar Essence STX

    The PSU in the Sonata is good enough to power your build even with overclocking.

    The model is a Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green.

    Uh dunno if it has a name, since it came integrated in the case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129024 - Antec Sonata III) if that helps

    Hmm.. Is something like 30$ enough? Checked some CPU coolers and the prices went up and down like a rollercoaster so don't know which 1 to choose. On the other hand listening to the noice that the standard cooler that comes with the CPU is so freaking loud, I probably could spend more if it's possible to make it a little less noisy!

    Eeehh....with PS4/720 so close on the horizon I really hope the Wii U has lasting appeal because it's already shot itself in the hardware department, barely edging-out PS3/360 lol.O

    Oh well, hope you have fun with it

    ZombiU looks pretty cool though.

    I'm not really interested on the general games Playstation/Xbox usually gets, I'm mainly getting it for playing things like ZombiU, virtual console games like Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Luigi's mansion & Paper Mario.

    I was skeptical at first due to the few good games that were released, but when I heard Wind Waker was getting a refresh, I decided to buy it as soon as I could

    Not to mention the upcoming Mario Party, Lego games (Yes, they're actually decent. All of them.) & Paper Mario titles. ^w^

    Oh right, you're using it as a box that allows you to play Nintendo exclusives :P
    Fair enough, I suppose that's why most people are buying it.

    Gotta say, starting to have new records for stability and not needing to restart my computer...

    [email protected], 1.42v
    GTX 560 [email protected], 1.05v MSI Twin Frozr II OC

    It's currently been on for a consistent 10 days, 7 hours, and 20 minutes. Every night it's been Folding for a different team (I'll be coming back to Mmo-champion's soon!) and possibly at night it will also be uploading vids to YouTube as well. Basically anytime I'm not at the computer, it's Folding.

    (other)Console games compared to Nintendo games have always been bad anyway.
    Nintendo isn't about the hardware anyway, it's about the superior games.

    I'd rather spend money on two WiiU than one next-gen Xbox

    Did you just imply that every game ever released on PS1/PS2/PS3/Xbox/360 has been inferior to every Nintendo game ever released?

    No I must have misunderstood, you can't possibly be implying such an insane thing :P

    Yes. And the games you listed are on the PC.
    So non-Nintendo consoles are superfluous, because the controls work both ways. Nintendo are being innovative in control designs and in their games.

    Never been much of a console gamer really, I have a ps3 and 360 but they're just kinda sitting there as I do the majority of my gaming on the pc. Safe to say that I wont be buying any of the next-gen consoles any time soon if at all.
