Mobile CPU? How will you even use that thing in a desktop? It's also a first gen one...so...crap.

GTX 760 is decent though. Idk what the wattage is on your PSU is tho, and whether it's a good brand. Dont cheap out of the PSU, you'll kill your entire build if you do.

That CPU is pitiful and if your under a budget, than you should think about making an AMD build.

Is the cpu better than pentium d or core 2 duo?

dont buy such an expensive motherboard if youre going to buy a budget build, also, amd is better for cheap builds.

I'd worry more about that $20 CPU bottlenecking your 760.

The gpu is twice as strong as core 2 duo and should run games well because the time from cpu to ram to gpu is less by 3 to 1. So the cpu can take 3x as long on calcs which i doubt it will.
