Gaming Computer


I will be building a gaming computer for the first time. Looking to max out BF3, Skyrim, and maybe future games for the next year or so? This is my build so far so let me know what you think. Trying to stay as close to $700 as possible. I already have a case so thats why its not included in the quote. I also already have a copy of Windows 7. I own a external 1 TB hardrive and plan to save up for an SSD for this computer that I will purchase in a few months. Do you suggest just using the external hard drive till then or buy an internal one cheap like the one I have picked out?

  1. That video card wont max out BF3, unless you play at fairly low resolutions. You could probably play on high settings at 1440 x 900, but not ultra. I have the 560Ti 448core, and have a 20" monitor at 1600 x 900. I can play BF3 on ultra but dont have killer frame rates, probably in the high 40's. You should consider at least the 560Ti..if not 448 core version
