Hi there, I've got this PC I will soon build, I want confirmation from you guys if this is good.

The games I want to play are:

Crysis 2, GTA IV, GTA III and Sanandreas, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, Half-Life, Metro 2033, Portal 2, Left For Dead 2.

CPU: AMD ATHLON II X4 640 AM3 RETAIL

RAM: PATRIOT 4GB DDR3 1333 CL7.0 DUAL CHANNEL VIPER II SECTOR 5 RET

HDD: SEAGATE HD SERIAL 500GB UDMA 300 7200RPM 16MB OEM

COOLER: ANTEC 478/K8 PERFORMANCE CPU COOLER

GPU: PALIT 1GB GeF GTX 460 OC SONIC RET

SOUND CARD: GENIUS SOUND MAKER VALUE 5.1 PCI RET

CASE: T/TAKE CASE AGUILA VD1000BNS BLACK

PSU: ANTEC PSU BASIQ PLUS 550W A/PFC MODULAR

MOTHERBOARD: ASROCK SKT-AM3 770 EXTREME3 S/L 5200MT/s

SECOND HDD: MDT SERIAL 750GB UDMA 300 7200RPM 16MB OEM MDT SERIAL

Is there anything I don't really need in this PC? All I wanna really do in for this PC is just play games and record with F.R.A.P.S daily, that's why I have the second HDD.

Thanks in advance.

Depends on resolution, but it should run everything at near high settings.

answer YES IT WILL. shouldnt have any problems, the video is the main thing for Crysis 2, and it is a high graphic game.

the 460 should run it on normal settings, with out any problems.
as for the rest of the build looks good. nothing really a big issue at all.
again will run all the game you have listed with no problems, if a problem comes up back down on the games setting for the video.
then you should be golden again.

Is it just me or is it quite in this place??
Anyway, I replaced the CPU with an
AMD PHENOM II X4 955 8MB SKT-AM3 4000MT/s BLACK EDITION

And the GPU with the same one Rodney reviewed:

PALIT 1GB GeF GTX 460 SONIC PLATINUM 800MHz.

Is is 100Mhz faster than the previous one I selected, it is also lighter, :)

Is there an improvement here at all?

The sound card (SOUND CARD: GENIUS SOUND MAKER VALUE 5.1 PCI RET) is not needed. AsRock 770 Exreme3 has decent onboard audio (VIA VT1708S I think, that is a sound card near to a Creative X-fi).
