    It would work but I would definitely make the following changes:


    • Swap the power supply out for one from a reputable brand such as Corsair (Not the VS series), XFX, Seasonic.etc.  You don't need 800w though so can save money by getting something more reasonable such as 450-550w.
    • I'd recommend getting a motherboard with a better chipset such as a 970.  The 760G is an extremely old chipset that doesn't support modern technologies such as native USB 3.0 or Native SATA III.
    • Do you neeed Windows 7 Professional?  It's only really worth it if you are connecting to a corporate network and joining a domain, if you aren't doing this you can save money by going for Home Premium.

      Alright thanks man, Im getting all this from newegg. The windows 7 Professional was the only option for OS besides 8.1 or 10 or i would have got Home Premium, and the only reason i got a 800w power supply was to be able to upgrade parts in the future but it seems im going to have to upgrade part(s) sooner than i expected. Is my processor good enough for a bit?

      Thanks Camerongray.

      What you may want to look at doing is getting it directly from Cyberpower - They will then let you change parts to get exactly what you want and will build it to order rather than you having to buy a substandard machine and later upgrade it.

      For example, this: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/saved/1H90Q6 - Almost the same price but with a much better power supply, motherboard and CPU cooler.  You can also tweak anything else you see there such as the case which comes largely down to personal preference.
