  5. sounds okay, except there is no dvd drive, and no operating system. can you maybe work that out as well?
  6. If u live close to a Microcenter they had the i5 2500k for $179 and $50 off a motherboard when purchased together.

    Here is a list of BF3 on maxed settings at bottom of page. It's 1920x1200, so if ur using 1920x1080 ur FPS will be @3-5 FPS higher

  7. well the thing i need are a decent case, a cpu, motherboard, a dvd drive, and a psu. i already have a graphics card for $292, an os for $120, and ram for $25 so the things i mentioned i need, have to come to a head at around $440. so for the record, i need a case, a motherboard, a processor, a power supply that supports an msi hd 6970, a dvd drive., all for at most $440
  8. OS WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM 64 BIT 100 EURO
    CASE THERMALTAKE ARMOR A90 90 EURO (THE PERFECT CASE FOR A LOW PRICE)
    CPU INTEL CORE I5 2500K 180 EURO
    GPU THE ONE YOU HAVE
    MOBO Z68 130 EURO

    OPTICAL DRIVE JUST PICK ONE LOWER THAN 20 EURO
    PSU CORSAIR TX650W 90 EURO
    RAM CORSAIR VENGEANCE 1600MHZ 2X 4GB 50 EURO
    IF THIS BUILD WILL RUN THE GAMES YOU STATED IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE GRAPHICS CARD YOU ALREADY HAVE. IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT SELL YOU GPU AND BUY A GTX 570 TO ADD TO THE BUILD I MADE FOR YOU
    TOTAL 730 EURO
