, well I will be buying a new PC for gaming, my budget is around $900 (dollars) (just the pc not including monitor nor windows) , no more Ill get cracked windows and a cheapy monitor. I will be playing Battlefield 3 all day now with the new maps im really excited hopefully I wont see sunlight again lol... Ah well im a noob and dont know much about computers... the components I really want right now are
Processor: i5 2500k (3.3 to 3.7ghz(turbo) or i5 2400 ( 3.1 to 3.3ghz(trubo) so I can save money as it is a budget build. One question here: Do you think I really really really need 2500k for gaming? I think i5 2400 will be enough as I will be gaming in one screen hoping to get a 1600 resolution or a 1920 one...
Graphics card: GTX560 Ti 1gb (plus overcloack, I dunno how but I could ask here later when I get my pc if i ever get it) could you guys tell me if gtx560ti will run battlefield 3 ultra? I just want to get at least 35fps so its playable you know lol, even though 45 or more would be very nice I could sell some things to buy GTX 570 1.2GB ive read very nice things on da web of it...
and thats all well the other things, i will just go to a local pc store, since i live in Mexico sending the components through tigerdirectcom is 360 dollars or something plus 15% of what I bought or something according to Mexican importation taxes... *** it we suck well will that work? and by the way are there good sound cards under 30 dollars? the other question is: is 8gb really needed for gaming? I was thinking of 4gb or 6gb so i can save up
remember things arent what they coast in usa they sell it as if they were newer (Date) and stuff lol well thats all recommend the other parts byebye hope you can help me thanks
You should see the 35+ fps results you want with a little over-clocking I think a steady 40 is possible.
Add a Z68 or Z77 motherboard,
2x4GB (8GB) 1600MHz Dual Channel DDR3 RAM,
CPU cooler (to OC your CPU to a nice frequency),
decent 80PLUS rated 500-500w PSU,
+ the other bits and bobs, HDD, Optical Drive, Case ect....and you should be good to go
I've always heard mixed feedback on the 480's - noisy, produces loads of heat, and not to mention it's an "old" card now. I'd be tempted to stick with the 560Ti or even look towards AMD's new 7xxx series.
Well, it's after the comma so I think PO means he wouldn't get cracked W7 and cheap monitor any more. So yes, the $900 include a copy of legit W7. Throwing in a decent monitor will be very difficult. Challenge accepted?
