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!

Hi :) 

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

All the best Brett :)

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).

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-ove...

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.

No problem, and good luck with the new build. You should check out some of the other helpful posts. There are a few asking the same question you did with similar budgets.
