Hey, I'm new to Tom's and building computers. Today I went to a nearby electronics mall and picked up some sheets showing what they have. I'm helping a friend build a computer, he wants Skyrim and Battlefield 3 to run at high/ultra at a fluent 60FPS or higher at 1900 x 1080p.
I am confused about parts compatibility, especially cases. Will these parts function together? Is the i7-2600k worth it over the i5-2500k?
By the way, we live in Singapore, so prices are in SGD.
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM
I was confused about the i5 vs the i7, thanks for answering, and the motherboards. My friend might want to SLI in the future when games get more demanding. Only problem is that we are in Singapore, so acquiring some of these parts might be harder.
