so its my birthday and my mom offered to help me buy parts for a new pc
Basically I need this baby to run the newest games decently(Battlefield 3?). I just wanted to
put out the list that I currently have and see if anyone can spot something I missed or
If you guys have anything you think I should replace, or price match some of these parts.
Dont need os mouse or keyboard ( my friend can get me a free copy of windows 7 from his mom )
Thanks rvilkman And Browsingtheworld I went with your changes and changed the mobo, ram and switched the PSU for the 850w ocz one browsing recommended. I thought I might as well go big on wattage so I can crossfire later without having to worry about it.
That's an optional fan for the top of the case. I put that in the build for the fact I put dual vid cards in that build and two cards along with o/c the cpu makes for some major heat. But ya, that case has decent airflow.
I have no idea why the OP's build is like it is. He has thermal paste when the way over priced @ newegg CM212+ comes with thermal paste, he has a 850w psu for what should be a 750w psu...and that 850w is totally over priced, not to mention he has over $100 in shipping charges and a single vid card for all that money. $200 Z68 board for a gaming build?
