    This is my first pc build. and suggestions on changes? idk if the power supply is too much, but it has to be modular. will all these parts work together? should i get any cooling system i will not do any OC.
  2. It is all compatible but the CPU is not the best and the GPU is under powered for BF3. I suggest looking into Intel build based around I3 2100 and better GPU like GTX560 or HD6870 at minimum.
  3. budget?

    you won't need any extra cooling if you're not overclocking; that CPU is not bad, not great either. same can be said for the GPU.
  4. yes this pc can handle bf3 it just beats the min specs and it look like all the parts will work i am not going to recommend any changes be cause its a decent pc i know alot of people will recommend changes. and you will not be able to play on a high setting... unless you wanna pay more for better GPU.. and maybe better cpu like intel but that's a good chip there....
  5. You can use this as well and http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice and post in the system section.
  6. I would recommend a 45nm Phenom II X4 C3 stepping CPU with an unlocked multiplier over the FX series.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727

    Only $120 for the CPU and still a few decent AM3 mobos available on the net.

    I run my C3 Phenom II x4 @ 3.6-3.8ghz with a cheap Rosewill heatsink and it plays GTA IV, BC2 easily with many other tasks running in the background without issue. My GTX460 is my primary limitaiton when gaming, GTA IV will run at 45-55fps using only 75% of the CPU.
  7. I have a few suggestions for you -
    1) I'm sure a 550w PSU would be more than enough for you..it'll save you some cash as well.
    2) Different GPU. Preferably a 6850, GTX560, or 6870
  8. I would recommend you get this GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121419 and this PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095 SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply it will even out the cost and give you better GPU

  12. I would have to agree for the most part of what everyone else is saying. The build is decent, and here are a few suggestions to make it better.
    i) The PSU is really good, but you can save some money for still getting a good solid PSU, like...
    600W+ PSUs:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371044 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207014 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096

    ii) The case is cool and all but I would look at something <$100(considering the budget), like...
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146081 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129066 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811108407 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119196 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139011
    iii) with money saved spend more on a GPU or CPU. GPUs are getting cheaper since a new line of GPUs just came out. For gaming and recording and video editing, I would suggest the next step up is an Intel CPU. If not overclocking, try for an i5-2400 or even maybe an i3-2120. They are a generation old but still rock solid and cheaper than the new Ivy Bridge. The steps up in GPU are HD 6850, then the HD 6870, next GTX 560 Ti, and then the HD 6950, and HD 6970/GTX 570. Ive seen an HD 6950 for $200 which is a really good deal. Check out these for more questions...

  19. I am looking for a gaming pc to play battlefield 3, call of duty and recording. I have a budget of $800 max(if you could make it for less that is preferred.

    is this good?

  20. You are on a tight budget, spending so much on a case would hurt more crucial (performing) parts. ;)

    For instance, you can get a Corsair 300R for 80 bucks, that's 60$ more to spent on a better GPU/CPU or even an SSD.
  21. Nice case!
  22. Corsair Carbide Series 300R Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - $79.99

    Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - $99.99

    SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7850 OC 2GB - $259.99
    (including AMD Gift - Dirt SHOWDOWN Gift Coupon)

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) - $46.99

    ASRock Z77 Pro4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 - $119.99

    Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz - $239.99
    (incl. Newegg Promotional Gift Card - $15.00)

    CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W 59.99$

    = $906.93

    You could shave off 20$ by going i5 2500k and some more by using a cheaper case (like a Zalman Z9 plus for 50 bucks) or a slower GPU and propably ~20$ if you buy a refurbished HDD instead of a new one.
  23. I will use it to play battlefield 3, Call of duty, record and do video editing.I already have a 1tb HDD. Any changes to it I am at the max of my budget right now.

  24. Write the spec names
  25. Hi max, those parts look fine and I don't see any issues
  26. Do you think the GPU is a good value?
  27. It's a good setup from what I can see.
  28. 60Gb will be tight very shortly after build, with win7 bf3 and some small programs (most on another drive) i'm at 80GB, BF3 is huge, and will be huger when the next dlc comes out (27GB at the moment)

    so do not expect to put Bf3 on your SSD

    shop around for the SSD as these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148442 are a lot cheaper in the UK, £85 for 128, and its normally 1:1 £:$ other than that you are good to go. I'd generally suggest crucial over force as there have been fewer reports of problems.
  29. Its about the same computer I have, and its awesome. Enjoy it!
