Hey dudes, i need to know if my build is good, i mainly want to run bf3 all maxed at 1920 x 1080 and my budget is 1500 € but i dont want to necessarily spend it all. Heres the build :

The page is in slovak but there is english version on top, just change it :) 

- i5-2500k
- 200 €

- GAINWARD GTX570 1.28GB DDR5 GS Goes Like Hell

Mobo :

It will max out BF3 on that resolution, but if you plan on Ocing the graphics card, the Radeon HD 7850 would be better overall.

PSU will be fine.

Radeon 7850 - lower price better performance

or GTX 670 - newer gen but pricier; faster than reference GTX 680 which is their top of the line

Well I want nvidia 3D, so should I go with GTX 570 and then buy 2nd for SLi or 1x GTX 670?
And is the motherboard good for 2x SLi?

I already have a 3D monitor and nvidia 3D kit.

Thank you.

Yes you can SLI with that MoBo.

I would choose 1 x gtx 670 and then add one another one when you feel performance in terms of games begin to lag.

I am not sure about the cpu cooler, do you think the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO ( ) is good for i5-2500k OC to 4.6Ghz ? Or is there some better and not over priced fan?

Oh and do you think the PSU could be changed to something better too? Now i have the Corsair HX750 ( ) Thanks :)

People have been using the CM Hyper 212 EVO and been reaching 4.5 Ghz territory with ease.

The Corsair HX750 is a good PSU. Its modular and 80 plus silver (meaning it would be on the higher end of efficiency). I'm not quite sure what you mean by better though. You mean more efficient or better in delivery of power?

I believe the PSU would be enough for 2xGTX 670. Since it's 80Plus Silver, it should be running at peak efficiency with another card added.

Yes, 750W is enough, but only if he leaves both cards at stock. OCed, 850W would be more realistic IMO.
