Hi,
I'm going to buy the system with following specs,



Intel i3-2120 3.3Ghz

Asus P8H61 MLX Motherboard

8Gb DDR3 Ram(1333Mhz)

ATI Radeon HD 6850 Sapphire 1Gb Graphics Card

COOLER MASTER CHASSIS CM ELITE 371 WITH 550W POWER SUPPLY PC Case

WD Caviar Green 750Gb hard drive.


I want to play games on 21,22" Screen.


Please Comment & help me whether im going in right direction!

Thanks

if you can change out the WD Green drive for a black version because they are faster
The Caviar Black drives are good no question but the premiums on them right now with the HD shortages are ridiculous - they're not worth it right now. When they drop in price they'll be worth it absolutely.

If you fill this out we can better assist you: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

In the meantime I'd suggest not using a 5900RPM as your primary HD - it will be a huge bottleneck.

I would go with a 6870 or 7870 rather than a 6850 if you can afford it. The 6850 is a decent enough card but there are better cards out there for a similar price

Same goes with the motherboard, try and get your hands on P67, Z68 or even Z75/77 motherboard, the H61 is not a great performer
