Hi all, thanks for hitting this page. Just wondering, can this PC http://www.novatech.co.uk/pc/range/destroyer.html From NovaTech handle Battlefield 3 and Skyrim Ultra settings, Minecraft even. I want a very high FPS from it rougky 50-90 FPS on Skyrim and BF3, Minecraft maxed out settings will roughly be 150-250FPS.

I imagine those games would be playable at ultra high settings but I don't know if the graphics card is powerful enough for ultra high framerates at those kinds of settings, especially at 1080P.

Would you be confident enough to build a system yourself? You will get WAY better value for money. A £600 self build could match that one in games.

No not really, I don't think my Dad would trust me.

OK fair enough, I would at least go for an i5-2500k processor and aim for something like the HD 7950 graphics card though. The i5 is far cheaper than the i7 and gives similar gaming performance and the HD 7950 should be affordable at this budget and give roughly double the performance of the GTX 560Ti. If the HD 7950 isn't affordable, perhaps the HD 7870.

Go for Nvidia GTX 560 Ti 448core gpu which may be able to support at 1080p.
Don't go for i7 processor's they are not worth for gaming instead of that go for i5 Sandybridge processors with a liquid cooler/air cooler.

Oh and what type of monitor should I have I need one roughly within 21-27 inch, and what monitor connection eg. VGA, HDMI

Is there a site you can link to a UK based company?

I would look at a 22'' monitor, they are usually the same resolution as the larger ones but the screen is smaller so it will look sharper. The Phillips E-Line and C-Line monitors look absolutely beautiful, I've seen both in person.

Ive a lg 22" full hd led monitor the picture quality is quite descent for the price of $170
And the graphics card isnt good enough for playing games like bf3 at max settings and getting good fps. U can play it but u will have to lower the anti analising, shadows.
U can sli two gtx 560 ti, and also will have to increase ur psu to 850 watt
And for the processor go with i5 2500 or 2600

A good quality 650W unit would be fine for 2 GTX 560Ti's. The GPU's would pull about 350-400W max and the rest of the system would be around 150W.

So if u want a good psu will less watts then try corsair tx 650.

I have nearly the same exact specs as the computer you listed above, other than the fact that my graphics card has dual fans and 2GB of GDDR5. Minecraft and Skyrim will Run exactly as you want in ultra settings, but in BF3 to get good framerates at 1080P resolution in ultra you need more than a 1GB card, mine runs at an average of 40 fps in ultra bf3 id say, which is perfectly fine, especially since bf3 is currently the most taxing game for PC i believe.
