I have been planning to build a gaming pc for a while now, I believe I have enough money now to buy one that can run the majority of games smoothly but as you can probably tell my budget is not that high, I have a few components in mind but I do not know if these will be able to run games such as cs:go, fortnite, league and dota smoothly or not, these are the components: 

Intel - Core i5-7600K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor

Cooler Master - MasterLiquid ML120L RGB 66.7 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler

MSI - B250M GAMING PRO Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

Kingston - HyperX Fury Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory

Crucial - MX500 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive

Zotac - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB OC Edition Video Card

Silverstone - Primera RGB (Matte Black) ATX Mid Tower Case

Corsair - VS 550W ATX Power Supply

Microsoft - Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit

I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me because I really need some help for this, Thanks.

Yeah you should be fine, but a bit of advice switch out the i5-7600K for a AMD RYZEN 5 2600 a far better bang for your buck



In some markets the 7600K is marked up like crazy especially in austrailia

The AMD chip can be found for about $272.00 AUD vs $304.00 AUD for the intel chip

Also change that power supply too, not to mention motherboard as obviously you will need a AMD compatible motherboard.

You may wish to wait a bit as the budget boards for Ryzens newest line are not out just yet (B450).

Also 7600K uses obsolete platform so Ryzen is much better. I picked 1600 because it's cheaper.

CPU cooler: boxed is quite OK indeed

Memory: just faster

Video card: bit cheaper as prices are insane right now and AMD cards also tend to keep value better

PSU: Cheaper and bit better quality

OS: Retail, not OEM


I would also pick cheaper case.
