I would get a 990 motherboard instead though. m 0 l iRiskFTW November 6, 2012 1:46:26 PM I hope your going to play other games than jut those! hahaha.... but i would also recommend getting a 990 motherboard. You'll be able to run pretty much any game you want to play on high graphics m 0 l Related resources Help Building New Gaming Computer - Forum New Gaming Computer Build (Seeking Help) - Forum 1000-1200 new gaming computer need help - Forum Need some help with new gaming computer build - Budget USD$1025 - Forum need help with a new work and gaming computer -- 2000ish budget - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I'd suggest getting 660, it's about $100 more but it'll be worth it. m 0 l wr6133 November 6, 2012 2:57:12 PM He doesn't need a 990 board unless he plans to SLi however he should get a better quality board if he plans on long term stable OC's the GA-970A-UD3 would suffice Also I agree with antizig get a 660 or better you aren't going to run much on high at 1080p with a 650ti m 0 l dunn2k November 6, 2012 3:45:53 PM i agree with the 660ti (or go for the ati hd7870 for a bit less) if your not going to use sli in future then your PSU is overkill also, 550W is all your need, im using a 500W modular with my 7870 and intel 3450 cpu if you get the 990 board get the better PSU but if your board doesnt support sli then ur PSU doesnt need to either (cut down on cables in the case!¬!) m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
