Is this computer good for gaming? Im new to building a computer so please if anything is bad and you suggest a better part than please don't hesitate to inform me. I mainly plan on playing Arma 3, Battlefield 4, and Elder Scrolls Online. Thank you for your time

  • Intel Core i5-3350P w/ Asus P8Z77-V: Combination is based off the older "Ivy Bridge" design. Current is "Haswell Refresh". e.g. Intel Core i5-4460
  • Silverstone ST60F-PS: Alternatives available with better specs, similar/lower price. e.g. Seasonic SSR-650RM.

  • Correct. All around improved processor.
  • Keep in mind that you should pair it with a mobo that has the current Z97 chipset as well. It is the current equivalent of the Z77 but with more features.
  • Forgot to mention, if you use Windows Media Center for the convenience of a remote, Windows 7 includes it by default but Windows 8/8.1 does not. Media Center is additional cost unless you purchase the Professional version.

Appears to be satisfactory but you removed the Noctua for a budget liquid cooler? Keep in mind that the i5 should not generate that much heat.
