Building a gaming rig. Need your help.

Im building a gaming rig and Im trying to figure out what my best bet is with my parts. I want to be able to play BF3 on max everything. Im also into video editing so I would like a computer that can render really quick. Im looking to stay around or below $1000.

Heres what im thinking so far.

Power supply:

  1. this is the wrong category .your gpu and CPU are the same link so are your psu and case. I can definitely tell you $1000 wont play bf3 all maxed out. but you don't need all settings maxed
  2. Hi, as breaker said you wont be able to play at everything max setting, you will be able to put most though.

    If you can extend your budget then you could get the necessary equipment to play it at max.

    Here is the build I would throw together with 1000$

    HDD - OCZ Agility 3 60gb (don't need more for OS HD) - $80 after MIR
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227725&cm_sp=Cat_SSD-_-Spotlight-_-20-227-725

    Case - Coolermaster CM 690 II - $80 after MIR
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119216

    CPU - Intel I5-2500k - $220
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072

    RAM - CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB - $80
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233170

    PSU - Antec EarthWatts 750W - $75 after MIR
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371051

    MB - ASRock Z68 PRO3 - $120 (if you want a good crossfire ready mb then you will have to put up approximately another $100)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157251

    GFX - HIS 6970 2GB - $340
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161356

    Total: $995

    I would really suggest opening your budget a bit more, so that you can get a better motherboard, which is crossfire ready so that you can go crossfire later on, and a storage HDD/120GB SSD.

    Hope it helps though
