Is this a good gaming computer?

I will be using this to play BF3, Cod and maybe more. What quality and FPS will this play bf3 on?

  1. you will be playing on high-ultra with some settings turned down. i would ask you tweak the power supply since that model tends to be not very efficent and unreliable. a good one is the seasonic M12II 620w. it is almost silent and is 89.99 onsale at newegg
  2. also a cheaper case is the antec 302
  3. ok thanks I changed the power supply but kept the case because it is only 10 more
  4. also i recommend a better board from asus. Biostar tends to have lots of DOA stuff. read the newegg reviews
  5. changed some of the parts
  6. Mine plays BF3 on ultra at 40FPS. I have:

    Asus M5A78L-M/USB3
    AMD Phenom II x4 965 @3.4
    XFX HD 6950 1GB
    CM GX650W
    8GB Corsair Vengeance
    320GB WD Caviar Green
    Basic DVD THINGY
    CM Storm Enforcer

    Yeah, and it only costed £439, so not sure what that is in USD, but it's a cheap and VERY Good aming rig. :) Just helping out
  7. of course. put all your money towards a graphics card. its the major factor
  8. Yeah, that's the main part of my rig, I am not bothered one bit by bottlenecking because I don't play CPU intensive games, a 965 is PERFECT until I upgrade to Piledriver

    how about this?
  10. i told you to switch out the power supply. FX is worse than i3 in any game. if you really like amd, then i would suggest that you stick with the phenom II 965. the 965 is better than fx in games
  11. actually according to toms hardware, a intel pentium will beat fx or tie it
  12. Actually Tom's Hardware aint 100% accurate.As my Brothers got an I3 2100K and im running FX 4170 and there's no way that it can keep up with my FX.I actually dlded the best gaming cpu's list of july and only a high end I5 are faster and that beinging said in my country i paid R1500 for my cpu where a I3 cost around R2000 and the I5 cost around R2500.It just not worth it here.There's also another big factor to consider is win7 doesn't support the FX series thus they brought out 2 hotfixes for AMD.But im over Microsoft in anycase.I'll rather run linux than an unstable windows :D
