Not enough info, what RAM? Exactly what HDD do you have? Sorry, 1TB storage drive isn't acceptable.

I'd give you an 8.2 simply because your GPU is so mid range now...mid range CPU as well.

OK, I'm done with my AMD upgrade, got the parts that I feel would last for a while -

CPU: AMD FX8120 BE @3.65ghz
HSF: CM Hyper 412 Slim
Mobo: Asus Crosshair V Formula
RAM: 4x 4GB RipJawsX 2133mhz
GPU: MSI GTX670 2GB OC Ed
PPU: GB GTX560OC Ti (PhysX)
HDD1: 150GB WD Raptor (OS)
HDD2: 2TB WDC Black
HDD3: 500GB WDC Blue
ODD: LG Bluray RW + LG DVD RW
PSU: Seasonic SS-850AT
OS: 64bit Win7 Pro SP1
Case: Thermaltake Mozart TX

OK, feel free to trash this due to the BD CPU......btw, using the mobo's onboard sound which is X-Fi based, pretty decent actually.

agreed on the GPU, but the CPU is nowhere near mid-range. Where did you get your 670 btw?

It depends on perspective, from where I'm standing, i5 2500K = i5 3570K = mid range. I'm from Asia, the GTX670 is in no short supply here...

Agreed that the 2500k=3570k, but thats about as good as your gonna get for a gaming cpu. the 3770k really has to advantage over the 3570k.

Which CPU's do you think are better? AFAIK there arent any.

If you aren't happy with how I rate and categorize your system and parts, I can easily delete or edit my post. Either accept them, or wait for someone else to rate you the way you want to be rated..

Here's my little thing. I've always wondered if my computer was considered good/great/bad/meh in the gaming realm.

Motherboard: Gigabyte EP43-DS3, DDR2
RAM: Kingston DDR2 2x2GB @ 800MHz
GPU: MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560Ti Twin Frozr 1GB
HDD: WDC WD7500
Monitor: Iiyama ProLite E2473HDS 24"

um having a conversation about system specs offends you why? I was just asking how you though a 3750k isnt considered a high end part. Like i said i would be interested in hearing what you consider a better cpu than that.

Why participate in a forum without discussion. Not to mention the point of this thread is pretty dumb in the first place. 3Dmark does a much better job in rating gaming performance than any person could. Clearly if you just want a number, run 3dmark and be done with it. If you want to have a conversation, then thats what forums are for....

8/10

Looks a little better than my old gaming rig, and i was able to play just about everything with most eye candy on. Only a few games gave me any trouble (BF3 and metro 2033 look a little better now since moving from a Q6600 to a 3570k)

do you have your CPU overclocked?

If you think this thread is dumb, then move along. There are many other forum areas and threads to post in.

just saying if your gonna argue with someone who is just having a conversation, take a step back and look at the name of the thread. Without dialouge, this thread is just specs and numbers. kinda boring if you ask me. Am i wrong?

Yes, you are wrong. This thread is and always has been nothing more than giving a rating to a computer. Like I said, if you don't like the thread, move along.
