Just to give you a point of reference I spent $1000 on my new build 3 weeks ago and i can run both games highest settings with anti-aliasing at 1920x1080 resolution. Not sure if it's the best value just for those games specifically. Specs are in sig.
Illest said:i dont think thats the best value, a lot of other forums are saying how you can buy a good gaming computer for like 650
for $650 you can build a decent gaming computer, but you are looking to run bf3 at highest settings(skyrim doesn't take much). I have some headroom performance-wise but a $650 build isn't enough to run bf3 on highest unless you skimp out on everything except for the GPU. Even then I'm not sure if you could run BF3 on highest because it takes quite a beast of a computer to run.
Here are some suggestions on parts:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127582 (max everything with HBAO on and 4xmsaa in bf3)
2 gtx460's, similar performance to a 570
really your choice but here's a suggestion
I got the micro to save a few extra bucks since i won't be using more than 2 pci-e slots and the x8 bandwidth doesn't effect performance as of now.
6GB should be more than enough though if you want to save a few bucks
if you're planning on a single card build, 650w should be sufficient
Even the article that Tom's did basically concluded that if you want to run BF3 on ultra with everything maxed you need a crossfire or SLI setup a single card simply doesn't cut it. LINK
