I'm building myself a new toy for upcoming games (eg BF3) and I need you guys' advices. I'm not sure about some parts (Vid Card and Mobo) and I'd appreciate some feedbacks from you guys.


These are the parts that I'm intending to purchase:

Mobo: GA-Z68XP-UD3P (some say get a UD4 - is it really worth it/what's the big difference)

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

Graphics Card: Radeon HD 6950 but I don't know which manufacturer to buy from. Probably SAPPHIRE (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102929)

RAM: Need help. Thinking about getting 8GB of http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277

SSD: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III

Case: Antec DF-85 Black ATX

PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W



Thanks a lot for any feedback!

Hi, Nyanja. Looks like you are off to a good start. I built a PC last March and a lot of the prices have already dropped a lot. I bought this RAM for 100 bucks back then, it is great:

You don't need more than about 700 watts unless you have two vid cards. Get this one:

I would stay FAR FAR away from ATI. They offer decent power for price, but they can't do PhysX, which lots of games use, so IMHO ATI is useless. Get this instead and get two free games:
