Hi. I want to build a gaming computer to play the latest games (BF3) with Maxed Out settings.
Approximate Purchase Date: August
Parts Included in budget:everything(except the sound and the mouse),including the monitor, because I'm gonna build from scratch.
Resolution: Doesn't need to be that high, because that's not what matters. If a little sacrifice must be made in order to keep the Maxed Out Setting, do it.
Parts Preferences: Intel CPU, Gygabite or Asus mobo.
SLI or Crossfire: My budget can't afford it, I think, because I would a cooling system as well, so, no.
Overcloking:The same reason as stated above.
With components this powerful it would be a total waste to get any sub 1080p monitor. I recommend checking out some of the led back-lit LG monitors
Yeah I agree. LG makes good monitors - but personally I'm a fan of Asus and Acer monitors. I also agree that the i5-2500 is a waste - the i5-2400 would be better and it would shave a bit off the initial build.
