Windows 7: Is this configuration good?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Is this configuration good?

I am buying a new PC this week so I wanted to ask is this configuration good for gaming?

Intel Core i5-2500
MB Foxconn-H67MP-V
1000 GB (1 TB) HDD
nVida GeForce GTS450/2 GB

Also Is there nVida GeForce GT450/2 GB GPU because this is the PC which I want to buy and it says nVida GeForce GT450/2 GB or is there any mistake

Also I have Licensed Kaspersky 2012 so my question is, will I be available to use the license on this (older PC ) and the new one

Hi David , the specs look ok , graphics card is not amazing but will do on most games , not at high settings tho.

You have posted this thread in the "Overclocking and case mods" forum , If you were planning on overclocking the cpu in the future then you have chosen the wrong cpu and the wrong motherboard.

You may be aware of this already and have no plans to ever overclock but should you want to then you require the 2500k and a P67 motherboard.

Hope this helps a little.

Windows 10 Pro. EFI boot partition, full EFI boot

The memory will probably be slower in the 2GB version - I expect DDR3 13323 MHz vs 1GB DDR5 at 2000 MHz. But still should be good. Ditto on what Paul said.

I believe Kaspersky is a 3 machine license so you will be fine with the two machines and a spare for later.

sorry but someone on this forum told me that P67 series are better than H67 series, is that true? Thanks you for your replys. Also Paul yes I want to overclock but my question is can 2500 (not K) be overclocked ?

The 2500 has limited overclocking, up to 3.8 or 3.9 GHz.
A 2500K can get up past 5 GHz.
So if you plan on overclocking, go with the P67 board to support full overclocking.
I'm not sure if you can overclock on the H67 boards, but if so, it's very limited.

GPU should be better :) something more like a GTX 560Ti or 570, AMD 6850 or 6870.

Yes, the GTX 460 will be more than enough. It's a high-end card.
