Case: I'm using an older Cooler Master model from my current desktop. Should work just fine I think.
OS: Windows 7
GPU: Radeon 6850
CPU: i3 2120
RAM: G. Skill Ripjaw 8gb
PSU: Corsair 600W
HDD: I'm probably just gonna throw in the 250gb HDD from my current desktop. I know it's old, but I'm not looking to store too much on it. Will this affect my performance much since its an older drive?
Is there anything here that won't work or that I should replace with something else? Will this thing be able to handle games like, say, Skyrim or Battlefield 3 well? I don't necessarily need to crank them up to the highest level graphics, but I don't want FPS issues. Depending on the marginal performance increase, I could possibly bump up the GPU to a Radeon 6950 and/or bump up the CPU to an i5 2300 or an i5 2500, but it depends on how much each of these upgrades would improve performance over the listed components, and if it would be worth the extra money for that improvement.
