So I just ordered a computer and I was wondering if I could run maybe BF3 on high. ( I dont expect Ultra and I'm very hesitant about High with these specs.)
So here they are:
Fractal Design Define R3 Black Pearl
Silver Power SP-SS500 500W PSU
Intel® Core i5-2500K Processor
ASUS P8Z77-V LX, Socket-1155
Kingston ValueR. DDR3 1333MHz 8GB, CL9
MSI GeForce GTX 560Ti 1GB PhysX
Sony Optiarc DVD±RW Writer, AD-5280S
Seagate Barracuda® 1TB
OCZ SSD Agility 3 Series 2.5" 120GB
That's it I know the PSU could have a higher W supply and on full load it is very loud, so I thought maybe the loudsurpressed shell would be good enough. I have 2 120mm fans, I'm going to order two 140mm aswell in their, but maybe the MSI twin frozr will do a good job in cooling. Other than that, I'm open for facts, ideas and tips
Yet my question remains the same, high on BF3? Any other games that it would do good on? I'm going to play Diablo 3 aswell
Okay. Thank you I don't plan to sli, I'm considering getting a better graphics card maybe one of the GTX 6xx series when the prices go below 3000 Norwegian kroners = 320 GBP = 495 USD. Right now in Norway they are selling at 3500 and so on. The PSU will be changed this year I believe. Thanks again
V-LX,LE, are very basic boards. For the same price, you could have gotten an asrock board with more features, such as SLI and Crossfire.
So if I was to change the PSU, would this hold? http://www.komplett.no/k/ki.aspx?sku=657488
And from those components you listed the PSU should be changed first, right? And should I get a new graphics card or will the GTX 560ti hold for now?
For a PSU id go with Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling or Antec. You need to understand that the PSU is the single most important component you can put in a PC. If its garbage, which value PSUs generally are, it can cost you a lot more in the long run if it blows and takes out your PC.
