Also, based on that^^ can someone please tell me what settings I can play Battlefield 3 on in a 64-player map with a 1920x1080 resolution? I’m not shooting for Ultra, more like medium or high but please guys, I’m new to this and I want to know if these items are compatible or not and how I’d play on Battlefield 3. Thanks!!! :-P

Another thing, do you guys recommend anything? Such as different parts or anything? I will be doing homework, watching YouTube videos, researching, playing Battlefield, Minecraft, and maybe some open beta's if I can find any. Thank you :)!

  1. Not horrible. The PSU is OK, MB is ho hum, HD is less than desired.... You also have an unlocked CPU on a MB that wouldn't allow overclocking. The system below is ready to be overclocked and will handle a second GPU if needed down the road.

    MB - ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 - $122
    CPU - i5-2500k - $230
    CPU Cooler - Hyper 212 EVO - $35
    GPU - XFX HD 6950 - $210 after MIR
    MEM - Corsair XMS3 8GB DDR3-1600 CL9 - $50
    HD - Seagate 1TB - $135
    OPTICAL - 22x DVD Burner is free with the Seagate HD.
    PSU - XFX PRO850W - $90 after MIR
    CASE - COOLER MASTER HAF 912 - $50 after MIR
    OS - Windows 7 Home Premium x64 - $100

    $1202

    A good idea...
