for casual gaming nvidia 750Ti for 10-11k is more than enough.it is not a good idea to use WD green drive as primary/os drive so better get a smaller size fast hdd(500gb WD blue) or a ssd & use 2tb WD green as secondary/storage drive.

op said "casual gaming" & "willing to play games in low/mid settings".I am not a gamer but shouldn't a 750Ti be able to handle GTA V at med settings:
GTA 5 on gtx 750 ti [Solved] - Gtx - PC Gamin

Hi Yoda,

Overall i like your PC build but I also noticed that you chose a WD Green as your storage. As far as I know, the WD Green is used for data storage, or can be used as a primary HDD if your computer is for low-end computing, like word processing. If this is for graphic use like gaming or video editing, I would recommend either a WD Blue or WD Black instead. Or another storage option is to have an SSD as a primary drive and a big HDD for secondary. For better performance and for life of your system, you just add a liquid cooling system on it.

Hope it helps.


Thanks a lot to all for suggestions and recommendations :)

Using only AMD A10-Series A10-7870K is it good enough to play above mentioned games in Low / Medium settings smoothly (without dedicated graphics card) ?
