Hello, I'm a first time PC builder (I own mac). I'm making a PC for general gaming. Currently, I want to play Battlefield 3 and ARMA 2 on medium settings. Like the title says I don't know too much about PC building so I was wondering if some one (or multiple people) could check to see if all this stuff will work together. Also, if there is a better deal or a better item you know about then can you let me know?
Cool, thanks for the reply. Are you sure I won't need 8 GB of ram, I see a lot of gaming computers with that much? Also, with the video card, I'm guessing based on your response that it is better to have DDR5 than DDR3 with half the memory?
I have 4GB of RAM and I rarely use even half of the RAM (and I play black ops). Also the GPU on the 6770 is stronger, therefore can withstand higher resolution and higher Frames per second than the GT440. As you can see the 6770 is better than the gt440: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/fastest-graphics-ca...
I guess I'll go for the second one. This build is turning out to be more than I thought but the last thing I want to do it blow all this stuff out and paying an extra $20 to feel safer is worth it for me. Thanks for warning me about the other PSU.
Built it this past weekend and... it's awesome. It's just so fast. I'm playing ARMA OA on High settings (although I think I can play on the highest, I haven't tried yet) I can't wait to get some more games. BTW: it is so hard to put together a computer before a finals week and not get to use it that much, just look at it (can't wait for this semester to be over). And if any first time builders ever read this, it's not that hard to put together a computer it took me like 1 1/2 hrs including windows installation and this is my first time I just recommend watching some YouTube tutorials like the NewEgg one here:
