Input on my new Gaming PC

I just built this PC last night I love it so far, but I don't have time to test it due to work. So I was wondering what kind of performance I could expect to get with this set up in terms of normal tempuratures. Also, I was wondering what kind of performance I could get out of running modern games, like BF3, Crysis 3, etc on ultra settings. I've tried searching, but couldn't really find on much that reflected these exact specs. The most I found were generalized and a few poor quality videos on youtube. Any input is apreciated, thanks.

    I would say CPU wise if you aren't overclocking I'd think in peak situations probably in the 60-70 range. In terms of your GPU as long as you aren't hitting 80 you are good. BF3 won't give you a hiccup at ultra and maxed out. I'm not so sure with Crysis 3 I know that it can be pretty demanding.

    At this point the only real thing I would look towards in the future is adding a SSD OS/Game drive in the 128/256 gigabyte range. Overall though nice setup.
  2. Thanks for the response, I already have had my eye on an ssd. I played a little last night and I was very pleased with the performance of BF3, but for some reason hitman's highest shadow setting makes it drop fps every once in a while and assassins creed 3's antialiasing makes the game become pixalated when it is turned all the way up.
  3. I can't remember which hitman it was but one of them was poorly ported don't quote me though. And Assassins Creed 3 I know for certain wasn't a amazing port as well. However I hope you enjoy both games regardless :)
  4. Thanks, yea they are both playing great regardless just a bit wierd each game has a graphic setting that, when adjusted slightly, really screws up the performance.
  5. Yup I feel you! some games dont port well.
