Default My next computer

Hi!

First of all, I just want to precise I'm from Quebec, Canada, speaking french. So I'll do my best, but there will be some mistakes...

I just want to have your comments about the computer I'm building. It will be for gaming and Adobe CS4 works.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Quad Core AM3 Black Edition
GIBABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P
G-Skill F3-10666CL8D RIPJAWS PC3 2x2Gb CL8-8-8-21
GIGABYTE ATI Radeon HD 5770
SAMSUNG SPINPOINT F3 500GB (2x)
PIONEER DVR-218LDBK
COOLER MASTER Storm Scout Black
SEASONIC SS-650HT 650W
EDIFIER E1100
ASUS 24" VW246H

Is everything OK?

Yeah, I know it would be better, but it cost a lot more too! I don't have enough money to spend on a PC for this. I suppose I'll be able to play greatly anyway, just with a lower graphic quality.

Seasonic makes some of the best PSUs out there. Know the Corsair HX series? Seasonic OEMs. From what I've seen individual products can be poorer quality, but on the whole the brand is awesome.

As for 24" gaming with a 5770, it's perfectly possible. I've got one running my 1080p monitor fine (I was using a 9800 GT before that and still getting acceptable frames). The way I see it, a 5770 is the lower end of what will power games on a 24" monitor. You'll be able to max out most games (though you may need to stick to 2x or 4x AA depending) and stay above at least 30FPS. Granted, this is mostly with DX9 games. No comments on how it will handle DX11.

make no sense.... it's the lower end and it's max out

let's talk about the x11 games.. they don't take less processing power, they need more.
