My budget is 600 $ and I will be purchasing today. Sorry if I didn't fill out template but I really need help. It can be only 600 not 601$. I have a 165 sapphire 6870 and a i3 2120. My question is will my setup be able to run 60fps on high with swtor or bf3? Res: 1920x1080 I can play on 728p. I have 500gb and 8gb ram. Also shoulda get i3 2100 and the 2120 is on sale 5 $ less.
I'll try to help you out...
If you already have a 6870, and the i3-2120, a 500GB HDD and 8GB of RAM, it sounds like you have $600 to spend on power supply, motherboard, case and optical drive.
first, is the 8GB of RAM DDR3. I'm going to assume yes.
then you can easily stay under $600. I don't play BF3, but I have read that it will be just fine on a 6870. In fact, you could probably step up to a more powerful PSU and get a second 6870 and run crossfire and that'll probably get you your 60fps at high settings at 1080p (although really I'm guessing- but that's a lot of graphics horsepower) and still stay under $600.
But I can't tell what you already have. it's not clear.
