Suggestions on parts for budget gaming pc

Hi there all

I am looking for advice/suggestion on what motherboard and cpu would let me play games like bf3, masseffect3 and starcraft 2 on maximum setting high/ultra at resolution 1600x900.

I've received a really good deal from a friend because his motherboard and cpu doesn't work anymore so he sold me his remaining parts dirtcheap.

So I have the following parts
-coolermaster case fullsize
-750w power supply
-8gb 1333 ram 2x4
-rewritable drive
-500gb harddrive 7200
-sapphire 6970 2gb

All for 280$

So my budget for a mobo and cpu is only 200-220$ max

Any suggestions to a good mobo and cpu that will play all those games np

  3. Its a corsair psu.

    And was wondering if I get a bundle deal would it be able to run games good just cause I got the 6970?
  4. Yeah any good sandybridge should let you run games pretty well. With that gpu.
  5. Intel Core i3-2120 Processor & ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 Motherboard Combo = 215.98

    Perfect Mobo and CPU combo for your needs.
