  1. Best answer
    I'd recommend a better setup with better CPU ( FX6300 OC-ed is stronger than a stock FX6350 ), better VGA card, larger case to work with, and last but not least, twice the storage capacity at a faster speed:

  2. Honestly no one knows, you didn't write what purpose and what demands you have.

    90% chance is that it's gaming-related, and maybe some steaming/editing :sarcastic:

    Thanks man. The only thing I am worried about is I don't know how to over clock a CPU. This will be my first build. Is it easy to over lock a CPU?
  5. Well you can start by using auto OC software from the manufacturer, in this case we have Gigabyte's Easytune 6. It's not very hard to use especially when you have a good motherboard and cpu cooler. For detailed info, I think the guys on Gigabyte forum can help out more : http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/

    Ok I will do! If I were to go with the build you supplied what kind of settings do you think I would get on games like BF3 and Crisis 3?
  7. If 1920*1080 is the resolution, then it must be ultra on BF3 and high on Crysis3.
