Is This Worth It?

Hello, I'm a new person to join Tek Syndicate and very glad to be here.

I was watching some of the Build A PC video guides on youtube and thought I might build one because I need a decent gaming desktop. However, I am very new to this and want to be sure that I am making the right choices. So here is the question: based on the specs below, would this build be worth at about $400? I know for sure I can get this build at that price. I want this computer to be able to play most modern games at moderate settings at 60fps.

  • Case: ThermalTake V3 Black Edition
  • Motherboard: ASUS M5A78L-ML LX+
  • Processor: AMD FX-6100 black edition
  • Video Card: ASUS HD 6870 1GB GDDR5
  • Memory: Patriot 8GB memory @ 1333Mhz DDR3
  • Power Supply: Thermaltake 500W
  • Network Adapter: TP-Link TL-WN822N
  • 300GB HDD

Thanks! And sorry if this is not the right place to post this... :(

Okay, I see. Thank you very much for your advice! But would this computer be able to do the things I want overall?

You need to give more information when you want to know how something will perform. We need to know what games what settings and what resolution you want to play.
