    Hi all,

    I am hoping I can recieve some feedback for my first ever gaming rig. Running at a resolution of 1600x1050. Would it be fine for Batman Arkham City and Battlefield 3 running at high?

    Intel Core i5-2500K
    Official Intel Socket 1155 Cooler
    Coolermaster Elite 430 Midi Tower Chassis
    Asus GeForce GTX 560 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
    8GB Exceleram Rippler Sandybridge-Series (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz - ERS303A
    1TB Samsung SpinPoint F3
    Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 Motherboard
    650W XFX Core Edition Power Supply
    LG 22x DVD-RW SATA Black Optical ReWriter Drive

    I got the asus gtx 560 really cheap off a local (£90) so I settled for that instead of the more expensive gtx 560Ti which I admit is better. The 560 itself is still a good card.

    Feel free to criticise, hopefully I can do better next time around!

    only thing I can say is about the motherboard, which is the same board I have, the 2nd PCIe slot is only a *4 slot if you decide to go SLI in the future. Something I wished I had noticed before purchase.

    @BarbaricSoul - Oh thanks I did't spot that...I guess I won't be going for a SLI setup, this build is for my younger brother for Christmas, I was thinking of doing up a similar build for myself with the ti of this card, will certainly look for a better mboard

    @AthalonX2 - For the current setup I though that cooler would be sufficient, do you think I should invest in a cooler with the current setup or in the future if further upgrades are carried out?
