I have a budget of $2600 and attempting to build a computer for elder scrolls coming out soon that can support it on the highest setting possible with 3 screen display, 4 if possible. Here is what i have so far but i'm new to this and don't think its going to work... i'd like to spend less but if its not going to go on max settings i'm willing to pay more, and i want it to be able to up-gradable for the future just in case if possible..

Why are you going amd cpu? Go 3770k.

For sure 3570k, not really sure if it's worth the extra to go 3770k if gaming is the main goal.

Instead of a 690 consider getting 2 670's. They will be cheaper and give pretty much equal performance.

AMD also does better at higher resolutions I've heard. Take a look at benchmarks for the 7970 and 7950's in Crossfire and see how it compares to Nvidia. I love Nvidia cards and own a 680 myself, but at 5760x1080 the 256bit interface becomes a bottleneck.

If you do go Nvidia for that high resolution, I'd consider the 4GB models.

Hi :) 

@OP - go with the 7990 if you like increased case noise.

All the best Delta :)  :)  :)  :)  :) 



Hi :) 

I have taken the insult to the manufacturer out of your thread....

I own a 7990 and its no nosier than a 690, which I also have in a display machine...

All the best Brett :)

You have an AMD CPU in an Intel motherboard. Get an i5 3570K or i7 3770K.
