Pc system for bf3?????
hi im building a gaming rig for bf3 and other games. i had a x6 system about a year ago that i playd bfbc2 on, but sadly i hat to sell it. and i want to build another one on a budget.
here is what i have:
4gb gskill ram 1333
500w rosewill stallion
biostar a770 e3
cooler master hyper 212
i just need a gpu and cpu. i want to stay around 200$ for these 2
so here is what im thinking
phenom ii x4 955 (100$) + 6770(100$)
athlon ii x3 (60$)+ 6850(139$newegg)
phenom ii x6 1035t(130$newegg)+ 5770(79$ ebay)
phenom ii x4 955 + 5830(99$ebay)
also is a phenom ii x2 better than a athlon ii x3, they are abouth the same price
PhenomII x4 955+5830.Its the most powerful among the all four for gaming.
EDIT:Athlon ii x3 445 is a great overclocker.You can overclock it all the way upto 3.9 GHz on an entry level motherboard which is pretty impressive.So my vote goes to athlon ii x3 +6850.Gives you the best bang for buck.
It's been said that the cpu does not factor into the performance of BF3 , the single most inportant component is the video card. You can run the game with a dual core cpu , but the video cards are taking a hit big time in this game.
