WTF do you mean with that? I see people on YouYube WHO have the same CPU and graphics, and they run BF3 at ultra with 50+ FPS. You all are negative on this forums, its not the first time. I have asked for other graphics card too and you guys are negative there too.

Its not negative but realistic thats only a low end graphics card and a CPU that has poor gaming performance. Please don't ask questions, get a good answer and then disagree. You should look at an i5 with a radeon 7850 as a minimum to max BF3. Don't look at Utube to see as many are just false ie they say its ultra when its medium or at a very low resolution.

It all depends on what resolution you will play at, if it's at 720p you probably will be able to max it out (you still won't get 60 fps but it will be playable).

At 1080p, the most common modern resolution, forget about maxing it out, actually at that resolution medium detail settings are the best you will be able to play.

What about HD 7850 2GB then?
December 1, 2012 9:14:34 AM

thats in a completely different class, med-high would be OK, high if you are willing to accept 50-60fps.

compared to 650, roughly twice the ommph.

Guaranteeing 60fps is difficult and expensive, but if you want to sit in 50-60 its a lot more manageable.

Radeon 7850 will be good. But change your processor to i5 3470 (Almost same price).
i5 3470 beats fx 8350 in gaming, and fx 8120 is old gen.

Ok ty! :D  Will buy this computer with 7850, seems like a good card.

Is this computer worth for 878$?

Graphics: AMD Radeon HD7850 2048MB OC
Processor: AMD FX-Series FX-8120 (4.0GHz Turbo 8-core)
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16384MB 1600MHz (16GB)

depends on the mobo and PSU and case. Mobos can range from 70 to 200, PSU's from 30 to 200+, cases 30 to 200.

forget about AMD fx for gaming you would be better served buying the older phenom 2. the reality is today if you want a good gaming setup you buy intel because for the same money you get more power.

It has motherboard and HDD and that stuff but its not necessary to mention that.

Is it worth for 878$, yes or no?
December 1, 2012 5:31:08 PM

No. FX isn't worth the money. If you went intel, you would have a much better machine for the same price.

Post your full specs please.
It matters a lot if we go and recommend it based on that info alone and then you come later to say you lost 800 dollars in a puff of smoke because your power supply was crappy and it fried all your parts.

It's not worth it. It's overpriced.

Same price, just much more powerful:

Maybe prices are different in each country, i live in Sweden.
December 1, 2012 6:44:09 PM

You should have mentioned that. But it's still not worth getting it. Prices in UK and Sweden should be the same. Europe has VAT, that's why it's more expensive here.
