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.

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

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=N82E168...

Case - Coolermaster CM 690 II - $80 after MIR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU - Intel I5-2500k - $220
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM - CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB - $80
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU - Antec EarthWatts 750W - $75 after MIR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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=N82E168...

GFX - HIS 6970 2GB - $340
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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
