hi guys i want to buy a pc to play bf3 on ultra setting with 4XAA if thats not the max setting for it then correct me if im wrong
so my budget is $850
i have a 19 inch lg screen with 1440x900 and that what i will use for now
im planning on gettin 45 fps on heavy battles or at least 35fps on heavy battles
what i have on mind is
case: cheapest case
disc drive: no
storage option: 64gb ssd
well heres the funny part i read reviews on
i7 3770k vs 2700k : nearly no diffrence in games(im not planning to use the internal graphics)
2700k vs 2600k: very little
2600k vs 2500k: not much
so im planning to get 2500k
so i think theres not a HUGE diffrence between the i5 2500k vs 2700k? But that its faster with a few mhz and have hyper threading(is that important for gaming and video editing)
ram: 4gb ddr3 1600mhz is there HUGE diffrence in gaming between the 1600mhz and the 1333mhz? And is 4gb enough? Iam on a budget dont see why i need more than 4gb
Motherboard: asus maximus v gene or maximus v formula z77(waiting for it to be released)
gpu: zotac gtx 670 amp edition(its nearly as good as 680)
power supply: idk about this one so what you suggest if im planning to get the above

  1. You should try putting those parts you're thinking about into a basket on Newegg... you're looking at $1400 worth of parts.
  2. the parts cost around $1100
    dont u know any of the answers to my question? O.o
  3. Well not precisely...

    1) I'd guess around a 6950 2gb would do the trick. My 1gb cards run out of VRAM with 2xMSAA which causes occasional lag.

    2)No clue. GTA 4 was a crappy console port and even people with ultra fast rigs like SLI 580s couldn't properly run it maxed. So it really depends on if Rockstar bother to port it properly or not.

    3)Yes, but not much. VGA is the worst video input right now, DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort are all roughly equal.

    4)For $850 and the best performance possible a 64gb SSD is not going to work as your only storage device. After Windows you would be lucky to get even BF3 installed on that. I'd suggest a decent HDD. Maybe a hybrid like the Seagate Momentus XT - check out the most recent article on Tom's Hardware front page. It performs nearly as well as an SSD after a bit of use but it has 750gb.

    Oh and if you want some exposure take this thread to the New Systems forum. Not much traffic in this one.
  4. thanks mate :D you really helped alot!!
