  1. Its not a particularly strong gamer . The graphics card will play games at lower resolutions and detail settings though .

    How many VM's were you going to run?

    mostly 3-4 VM at at time ...
  3. 3-4 VM's make the X6 processor worthwhile .

    Personally I'd save some money and use a mb with a 970 series chipset like the ASUS M5A97 evo . The BIOS is better , and the only limitation is that you can only use one graphics card which doesnt look like it will be a problem .
    The money saved could buy you a more power graphics card now

    The 400R is quite noisey according to a review I read on Anandtech . I havent actually heard one running though

    Can u suggest me a better graphic card .. and thanks for the mobo advice ..
  5. BF3 particularly is punishingly hard on graphics cards . People spending $500 + dollars on a graphics card alone cant max it out at full details

    But the next step up for you is the radeon 6770 for about $90

    6850 for about $130 .
    If you are gaming on a 1080p resolution monitor then this will give you playable frame rates and decent detail levels

    6870 for around $150

    and then to the Radeon 7850 for around $250
