    Evening all!

    I was wondering to hear the advice from some more experience PC builders on the following setup I've made. I'm building this PC to aim mostly for gaming (for an affordable price) and was wondering what you guys think! I went for a price along the 600 Euros. Share your suggestions and ideas.

    Here are the specs I'll be going for:

    Case: NZXT M59, Black, noPSU

    Motherboard; Asus P5P43TD, S775, P43, 4xDDR3, ATX

    Proc. : Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 3.06GHz, 1066MHz, S775

    Proc. Cooler: Scythe Katana 3 Heatpipe CPU Cooler

    Harddisk: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB, 7200rmp, 3MB, SATA

    Memory: 1x OCZ Gold 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666, 1333MHz, LV

    Graphics Card: Colorful Geforce GTS450 OC, 1GB, PCIe
    - Shader Clock: 1700 MHz
    - GPU Speed: 850 MHz
    - Active Cooling
    - DVI, HDMI, DirectX 11
    - GDDR5
    - 128 bit

    DVDRW: Samsung SH-S222A 22xDVDRW, PATA, Black


    Anyway, I'm still not sure about the OS I will install on it. I'd like to install Windows 7 but due to the fact that I'm not sure if all components will run on that, I've not made up my mind yet.

    Does anyone know how one could verify this?
    Anyway, if you require more info, drop a comment :)

    Also I wonder if I can play most of the latest game on it. Namely WoW: Cataclysm on highest settings, Black-Ops on (hopefully) highest settings and any other demanding game coming up in the next few years!

    I'd be happy to hear thoughts!

    Regards, Broxx

    The only way I know to verify that is to install Win7 -- without using a product key.

    That will get you 30-days of usage without having to activate it.

    But, you will need to lay your hands on Win7 installation media -- and, of course, we are NOT able to provide you any links to those.

    Windows 7 ISO – Official Direct Download Links

    Please keep in mind these are Windows 7 Install Disk. You can download, burn, and then install Windows 7 for 30 days using these links. However you must purchase your own copy of Windows 7 to get keys needed for activation.
