the frame rates you get are totally dependent on the resolution of the screen you use .
No one can answer your question without that information

However if you are thinking of building that computer : DONT
There are cheaper , newer, better motherboards using the 970 series chipset that can run the next generation AMD processors

Also don't mix AMD CPU with Intel card.

If you are going AMD, do it all the way with big video cards on Crossfire.

Agreed that will not be the board you want to use for gaming

Being stuck with a low budget sucks and having to scamble to find the best components you can for the money you have. The one thing I would try to concentrate on and put together the most money you can for is the graphics card. What you have listed for a total is just over $600 and you didn't list the monitor. Of course you didn't say whether you were planning to buy or if you already had this but I would see if I could scrape together a little bit more and get a better video card , maybe a 560 Ti. There is nothing worse then playing a game you have been waiting for at sub par fps and resolutions. Like Outlander said if you can get a cheaper MB then you could put that towards the GPU. Just a thought.

FFS, you two...

If you are going to get a AMD CPU get two ATI/AMD Cards for Crossfire.

If you are going to run Intel CPU, get two Nvidia cards in SLI...

Sheesh lolz.

You can run any of the four possible combinations of manufacturers' GPUs/CPUs and be just fine. Obviously the board you choose must support CF/SLI.

AMD boards can SLI and/or crossfire fine
and so can Intel

Seriously this isnt that hard.
If your running on a budget
Go with an AMD 955
Antec Earthwatts Green 650W - 65
MSI 870-G45 ATX AM3 870 - 65

spend the rest on a better GFX - 6850 or better

You are right its not that hard , but you got it wrong anyway .

If you build an AMD computer its advisable to use an AM3+ motherboard so you have a processor upgrade path to Bulldozer

Well hes on a budget, and if its 600 then i doubt hes going to buy a 955 now, and upgrade to bulldozer. if that was the case u might as well wait.

i havent been following bulldozer too well but i swear they come out before BF3. so if ur building it for that then wait if not, get the board i mentioned. This way you get a CF/SLI board that fits your budget.

Heh. Ok, I am a big boy and can take the shots.

The reason I adopted my position is quite simple. I am typing this on a BSOD Factory made up of one Intel CPU and two CF AMD cards. I swear, one more BSOD it's all going to the scrap pile....
