I have been trying to find the perfect parts for a cheap gaming pc to run BF3 on ultra settings for a 1920 x 1080 monitor. I have tried numerous time but can't seem to make it under the $1000. I just need help trying to find the cheapest build for a pc to run BF3 on ultra. I don't need a monitor, keyboard, or a mouse. Any help is appreciated and thanks ahead of time for whatever you can do to help me..
Don't just get an SSD, you'll be out of space very quickly. If you can afford it, get both (preferably an Intel 520, a Crucial M4, or a Samsung 830) and use the SSD for Windows and the HDD for games and other data. A few games that you are currently playing can be installed to the SSD (Steam games can be shifted using a tool like http://www.traynier.com/software/steammover).
