Building PC HELP !!!!!

I am building a PC and I need to know what setting I can play on the better games like Battlefield 3 and The Witcher 2. Any other video game suggestions would be helpful.

  1. A $10.74 shipping charge on a $24.99 mouse! Good thing you have that $10 rebate.
  2. Thats it
  3. You should be able to play BF 3 on ultra at 1080p. Easy.
  4. CM Hyper 212 Evo (instead of 212+)

    Not much to pick apart.
    It's a good list, has everything you need, everything is compatible and all good quality.

    You can leave out the Arctic Silver 5. The thermal compound that comes in the CM Hyper 212 Evo is quite good.
  5. Be sure to check around for Combo deals.
  6. Would I need to further overclock the GPU since it is already the OC edition
  7. It will run @ the stock speed 3.4GHz (3.8GHz TurboBoost).
    The K model you're paying a bit extra for has the un-lock CPU multiplier that makes OC'ing easier.
    The CM Hyper 212 Evo will help keep it cooler if/when you OC the CPU.
  8. Get a GTX670 instead of the HD7950.
  9. are you sure its better
  10. thelastsolidsnake said:

    It's better than a HD7970.
  11. This topic has been moved from the section CPU & Components to section Systems by Mousemonkey
  12. @ the OP. You have a psu meant to run two of those cards, yet a board that only runs a single card. Either you have the wrong psu, or the wrong board up there. Also you don't need to purchase any thermal compound like that Arctic Silver seeing how CM cpu coolers come with a small tube of MX-4 which is about as good as it gets in regards to thermal paste.
