Best Graphic Card and CPU combination for my budget?

Hello Everyone, and thanks for reading my question. :wahoo:

I'm building a new custom PC, and i have been getting a lot of different recommendations for the GPU and CPU installments.

First let me tell you the best i have come up with, which is the FX 6300 AMD CPU with the GTX 760 GPU. They might seem like an awkward combination, but unfortunately i have a strict budget of $370 for the GPU and CPU.

Here, i ask you if you have any other opinions for better installments that i can purchase while maintaining that budget, considering that my goal is running Crysis 3 on the highest settings with Anti Analysing and Motion Blur off, if better.

Thanks for answering, i really needed your help ! :)

    Good combination if you ask me, just make sure to get a nice motherboard to OC on.
  2. Your budget doesn't allow you to play Crysis 3 at highest settings. I'm running an FX 8350 and a GTX 670 and I can't run Crysis 3 at highest. It looks damn good on medium at 60 fps, though. Your combination sounds fine for your budget, though.

    I have pretty much highest settings at around 60FPS with an overclocked HD7950??? Sooooo....

    Thought you were op for a sec. Anyways, what's your CPU? Crysis 3 is pretty CPU intensive.
  5. 3570K @ 4.7GHz.

    As far ive noticed that FX 8350 beats the 3570k in Crysis Benchmarks.

    No, unfortunately I'm a broke ass college student and haven't picked up a better heatsink. Running the stock cooler right now :p. BUT I just took a look at my Cry 3 settings and I guess it could be considered high, I have some settings at medium but some at very high. I'm running a +150Mhz OC on my 670 though.
  9. ......... or possibly the AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black & the 760?

    I am aware of that, however, 1. How is it relevant? and 2. On youtube you can find a GTX560ti maxing out Battlefield 3 at 1080p. Trustworthy it is not.
