New to PC Gaming (Need help on building one)

Hello Guys!

I'm quite new to PC gaming and I know nothing about it. I decided to invest some money on building one. This probably gets asked a lot but I'm looking to build one in the $$600-$800 range. I want to be able to run current games (if possible) such as BF3, Crysis 2 in Ultra/High settings. Your recommendations are appreciated!

  1. Hi :)

    Not enough money for Ultra...my graphics cards alone cost a lot more than that...medium maybe...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Hi

    Thanks for the reply Brett! If I want to play on Ultra settings (w/o lag and w/ decent amount of fps) how much would it cost me? I'm also a cinematographer and would love to edit videos on it (currently using a Mac).

  3. Move to new build area and fill in

    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

    And yes I think for $800 u would be able to make a build for ultra w/ those games.
  4. This isn't usually the best place for this question, but you might take a look at the system builder articles. The have a budget build that costs $650 (probably a little less today). You could probably upgrade the CPU from the listed i3 to an i5, and maybe even get a little better GPU as well.

    Here is their budget build: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-gaming-pc-overclock,3159.html

    However, you are likely best off looking here for input: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-31-202.html

    It's a forum section dedicated to helping build systems.
