Do I have all the components to build a gaming pc? Are all the components compatible with each other? How good is this build?

I am very new to this. Is everything on this list compatible? In other words, with all that is listed, can I make a gaming pc? If so, how good would the build be? What games (popular examples) can it run and not run?

Graphics Card- EVGA GT 710 2GB DDR3 64bit Single Slot, Low Profile

Cpu Cooler- Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED CPU Cooler with PWM Fan, Four Direct Contact Heat Pipes

Ram- Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB Kit (2x8GB) 1866MHz DDR3 CL10 DIM

Hard Drive- WD Blue 1TB SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch Desktop Hard Drive

Board- ASRock Motherboard Motherboards N68-GS4 FX R2.0

Processor- AMD FD8350FRHKBOX FX-8350 FX-Series 8-Core

Power Supply- Apevia ATX-BT700W 700W Power Supply

Tower- DeepCool ATX Mid Tower TESSERACT SW-RD

Thanks for your patience, all help is appreciated.

Edit- No this isn't a prebuilt and how is the XFX RX-460P2SFG5 AMD Radeon 2GB GDDR5 instead of the gt710 (I have now learned it is pretty bad)? Is there any better GPU I can get for the same price?

  1. Despite being in compatibility list, that MB is not very good for FX 8350.
    GT 710 2GB is poor for gaming. Any gaming except some 10 year old games.
  2. What's your budget? Because those specs read like one of those overpriced prebuilt pieces of shot you get on ebay
  3. It is a prebuilt? Because a gt 710 is not suitable in any way for gaming (it is more like a gpu if you don't have an igpu so you can plug a monitor). You need a good dicrete gpu for gaming. I also wouldn't buy an amd FX cpu right now (~6 year old tech). Go with a Kaby Lake i5 (I suggest i5 7500) or one of the upcoming Ryzen R5 cpus. In terms of gpu, I would get an RX 470 minimum or maybe a gtx 1050 ti if you are on a budget What is your budget, where are you buying from?

    I agree with everyone else, those specs are not the greatest for gaming. But, the good news is that it is all compatible! Though that is a micro atx board, but an ATX psu, and I have no clue if that makes a difference, but I would recommend this build for roughly the same budget:

    Unfortunately the fx series is not brilliant for gaming because of the ipc, but that is just on paper. I have the 9590, and even though i5s are meant to outperform it, I have not had a problem, apart from cooling, but your cooler is fine.
  5. Size (physical) of MB has nothing to do with size of PSU. It's PSU power output that is of most concern.
  6. OMG WHAT A MESS. GO GRAB A 990FX MOBO RN! By the way, you kidding me? The GPU sucks. Grab a 1050ti, that IMO is the max that CPU can handle (FX and A-series bottleneck a lot!)
