The ultimate goal is to play on ultra with 40+fps online, but what might be the top my computer would be able to run Battlefield 3? I would be fine with running it on high to achieve higher fps. Any help would be great.
My Budget is $750 for the actual computer not including OS, Keyboard/mouse, and Monitor. I understand what your saying about the processor and I could go $50 over budget. I can always wait till blackfriday/cyber-monday to buy the parts in order to save even more.
