Solved 1000$ gaming for BF3 (without monitor) Tags: New Build Systems Last response: August 23, 2011 7:44 PM in Systems Share bozboz August 9, 2011 6:31:10 PM Long time i didn't build a PC, so any advice is very appreciated I don't know anymore which socket i should use, motherboard, same for the PSU 500W ? 600W? i'm lost on the new stuff. Approximate Purchase Date: end of august Budget Range: 800 - 1000 $ max. System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming Battlefield 3 mostly. Parts NOT Required: Monitor (i have 27" DELL U2711), dvd drive, mouse, keyboard, big hardrive, already have windows 7 64. Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca, ncix.ca, tigerdirect.ca Country of Origin: Canada Parts Preferences: GTX 570 ? or better? (i'm cool with ATI also), i5 or i7 processor, Crucial 64gb SSD. Overclocking: No, i'm a noob SLI or Crossfire: No Monitor Resolution: my Dell can go at 2560x but i can play at 1600 or 1900px Additional Comments: The most important is stability and performance for gaming. I can go to the cheapest case, i don't really care about this.

I have a different motherboard though. So instead of buying a gtx 580 frozII, I will be getting a pny gtx 580. Same thing really, both great cards imo. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
