  1. excellent choose and yes you can play games on high setting but not on maxed...
  2. Yeah only thing I'd change is the motherboard for a 900-series.
  3. found out that the mobo isnt direct 11 is that bad?
  4. yes of course its a great choice it will play most games on high settings
  5. What the hell guys!

    Get a quad core if you want to play BF3. Phenom ii x4 955
    Get an AM3+

    Change the PSU.

    A corsair Cx600w or Antec Earthwatts 650w

    Dont' get a green drive. It's slow compared to other drives since it's specific use is for storage. Get a samsung spinpoint f3 or WD caviar black for the boot drive ( where you will put your OS).
