So, I am really new here. I don't know where I should ask this question so I am just gonna ask it here. First off, I am new to building a custom PC and I was wondering if this PC is good priced for gaming and maybe some future video editing, but mostly for gaming. Would BF3 run on Ultra, or not?
COOLER MASTER HAF 912
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance
SAMSUNG Spinpoint 1TB
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M700
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
And a 24" ASUS Monitor, Saitek Gaming keyboard with a cosair mouse. For 1230 dollars. I am ordering it ALL from newegg.com.
Don't get that MB with a 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge CPU unless you want to get stuck in the catch 22 cycle of having to upgrade your bios, but not having a recognized cpu on hand you can use to post the system. Get a z77 based MB instead. and save yourself the headache and money.
