How are these PC Specs?

Not open for further replies.
I have been interested into PC gaming for quite a while now. I haven't planned/thought about the specs for my desktop until now. I was wondering what everyone thinks of them.

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Motherboard: Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad Motherboard MSI G41M-P28 Socket LGA 775
RAM: Patriot Signature DDR3 8 GB 2 x 4 GB CL11 PC3-12800 1600MHz 240-Pin DDR3 Desktop
Fan/Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED CPU Cooler with PWM Fan, Four Direct Contact Heat Pipes
Computer Case: RAIDMAX Ninja II ATX-A06WBO Black / Orange Steel / Plastic ATX Tower Computer Case
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAJS 320GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Power Supply: EVGA 500 B1 100-B1-0500-KR 80+ BRONZE 500W
Capture Card: AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable 2, Full HD 1080p60 Recording (This might sound crazy, but I do want to try to stream/make gameplay videos on Youtube and Twitch, and that is why I thinking of buying this capture card)

I do plan on giving my desktop the operating system of Windows 10 (Regular). I haven't thought of monitors, keyboard, mouse, sound speaker just yet. If you have any ideas, I am open to yet.

Overall your proposed PC is very dated. You want Windows 10 but your motherboard does not have drivers that support it. Manufacturer's driver support only goes up to Windows 7.
