I'm building a new Game Rig Designed to get the highest constant framerate in 64 player battlefield 3 multiplayer. (Want to avoid those tiny stutters from capped CPUs).
Can anyone else confirm that this combination of hardware will work well together?
Or let me know if Im missing anything important?

Will this Power supply work well enough? and
Is this motherboard lacking anything very important? the motherboard wont gimp any of the hardware will it?
Can I get better 4gig stick of Game performance Ram for 23$ ? I like this brand name.

Feel free to suggest other pieces from NewEgg. But I've pushed the cash as far as I can, the prices have to stay the same or lower. I would love any suggestions if Ive mad any bad decisions.

Motherboard: 49$

**** Surely this DVD drive will read my windows CD before installing drivers, so I can install windows7 on my hard drive right? lol ****

**I've read up extensively on CPUs. I understand that the intel chips have the highest single core power and that the AMD x4 - x6s out perform the fx6100 chips. but the fx6100 specifically excels on 64 player multiplayer, which is what I want to cap the most. Any of these chips will do well enough for most games otherwise.
Feel free to suggest other CPUS if you have researched specifically battlefield multiplayer performance. I wont be going with Dual core intel, I dont have enough to go with Quad intel.

Simply not true. I have two systems - one AMD the other Intel, and the dual core Intel CPU I use (i3-2120) far outperforms the six-core AMD CPU I use (Phenom II X6 1055T).

You want to stay away from the Nforce 630 - outdated motherboard and a crap chip set. What's your max budget? I can suggest some better parts if I knew what that was.

Ty for the nforce 630 tip.
I can afford to spend 49$ on the mobo. Exactly what it cost on the newegg site.
I would appreciate Motherboard suggestions, please let me know why you chose the new one also, so i know what to look for also.

I understand the generic "i3 2120"s out perform.
You have not tried to run 64 player battlefield and fraps at the same time :) 
Have you played alot of 64 player battlefield 3 large maps ? like return to karkland?
I do not care much about the frap'sing. If you can testify that the 2120 doesnt bottleneck
when your running a map with 64 targets around (Much much more demanding than single player).
Then Ill actually go with the 2120.

unfortunately BF3 is a really demanding game on any system. If you fill out the form at the top of the forum you should get more recommendations.

The only cpu's AMD's outperform are other AMD's. They aren't even in the same league as Intel these days.

That still doesn't tell me what your maximum budget is. I can't recommend FX for anything right now - at least until there's a credible fix for it. You might want to read this before you make a decision: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/windows-7-hotfix-bu...

oh you mean Total for the entire Rig?
440$ total. After Shipping and handling and everything.

If I had another 50-60$ to add too it, I would go the intel route. but I dont.
I've seen Youtube videos Frapsing full HD 1080p Battlefield 3 multiplayer on large 64 player maps.
So I know (Even though it may not be the best) its more than capable of handling bf4 large maps.
Which Ive heard start to max and choke intels 2100+ dual cores.

The i3-2120 beats any AMD FX GPU atm.

I'd like to see where you got this information from because the Intel i3 will handle anything you can throw at it fine.

I've seen benchmarks where the FX-6100 is outperformed by the *PENTIUM* G640.

all the benchmarks from tomshardware deal with single player.
multiplayer maxes out the cores much more heavily.
Ill find a few multiplayer charts.
