    How will this setup do?

    Hey guys,

    At first, happy new year!

    So I'm looking for a PC which can handle today's games pretty good and which allows me to record them at the same time..

    How will this setup do?

    Very well.

    I would look into an SSD (120-128 GB should be plenty) and an aftermarket cooler (Hyper 212 +/Evo would be fine) ... if that means dropping your video card one leg lower to 660 Ti/7950 to keep within your budget (assuming 1K is your budget).

    Just my suggestions.

    I'd look into getting a lower wattage PSU, unless you plan on going SLI.
