  1. MOBO : ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
    CPU : Intel Core i5-2500K
    RAM : Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    HDD : Samsung by Seagate Spinpoint F3 500GB 7200 RPM

    PSU : Antec NEO ECO 620C 620W Continuous Power
    DVD-RW : Sony Optiarc 24X DVD Burner
    CASE : COOLER MASTER Elite 430
    TOTAL : 888$ and 848$ after rebates.
    I tried to respect all you wishes ( overclocking , SLI, Crossfire)
    If you quit at the SLI ideea then you can lower the price if change the mobo with one of these.
    ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 105$
    BIOSTAR TZ68A+ 110$
  2. For SLI I would rather get a 750W (at 12v rails) PSU
  3. +1 for i5 2500k
    +1 for gtx 560ti
    +1 for hyper 212+
    +1 for mobo

    Should i be better off getting a corsair 400r?

    noooo go AMD FX-8150 crosshair V formula, nvidia geforce FX5200, nah scratch that,

    -i5 2500K
    -ASUS z68 mobo
    -corsair ax850 850w psu or seasonic x-850 850w both of these are 80plus gold psu
    -seagate 1tb 7200rpm hdd or 500gb 7200rpm hdd
    -samsung blu-ray(if can't add this on the budget go with)/lg/asus 24x dvd/cd combo something drive
    -g.skill ripjaws X 8gb (2x4gb) 1600mhz cl9
    -corsair 600T (or something get the white one its awesome)
    -cooler master hyper 212 EVO for cooling,
    -amd 6850 from sapphire is great, price/performance if not go get gtx560ti twin frozr II/OC 1gb from msi

    these should be good for you

    btw psu and case are things you would not want to be cheap about, if things go up in the budget, either try to get more cash or go lower with the case, but i do advise that case it's awesome, and for psu just go grab some seasonic or corsair 80plus gold 850w psu and your all set even with future sli or crossfire and whatever else you add in your system
  6. asrock hell no
    msi hell no

    BF3 on ultra needs more balls then what any $800 system can give
  7. sosofm said: can be played verry good with 560Ti.

  8. For the ones that said EVGA, i have to speak in respect for ASUS. I have a ASUS DCII GTX 560 ti, i love it. the original poster said he wanted a ASUS GPU. so.....
  9. OK so after some research i pick the following parts:

    Intel core i5 2500k
    EVGA Nvidia GTX 560ti
    Gskill ripjaws 8 GB ddr3 1600MHz ram
    Corsair 400R case
    Corsair cx850 Watts psu
    WD 500 GB hdd
    Lite on DVD burner

    Im confused for a good motherboard for my price.
    Sorry for the late reply,my old pc is dying.

    Would be much happier if i see an AMD build.
