Closed Need help with a gaming CPU Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: March 15, 2012 9:47 PM in Systems Share ajtemplar March 14, 2012 10:16:30 PM I'm looking for the most bang for my buck. I'm also looking for future upgrade space. My budget is around $600. I want to build this to only play Battlefield 3, for now. I'm ok with medium graphics. I'm a complete idiot when it comes to newer PC's these days. So I don't know how to overclock GPU's or CPU's. I already have Windows 7 64 bit so the OS shouldn't be included. I've been checking out this website. http://gamingrig.blogspot.com/ Is that website what I should be looking at instead of asking here? I wish to thank each and every one of you for helping me with my seriously boring and bland life. More about : gaming cpu kelthic March 14, 2012 10:47:09 PM you have a budget of $600 for the whole pc? or just the cpu? you should be able to get a decent i3-2120 with a 6870 setup for $600, providing you have a monitor. Tell me what parts you have and i'll see what i can come up with for you. ajtemplar March 14, 2012 10:54:21 PM Sorry, I should have been more specific. I can get a loaner monitor for the time being. So I'm looking at just the desktop/tower.
