hi guys i want to buy a pc to play bf3 on ultra
setting with 4XAA if thats not the max setting for it
then correct me if im wrong
so my budget is $850
i have a 19 inch lg screen with 1440x900 and that
what i will use for now im planning on gettin 45 fps on heavy battles or at
least 35fps on heavy battles
what i have on mind is
case: cheapest case
disc drive: no storage option: 64gb ssd
well heres the funny part i read reviews on
i7 3770k vs 2700k : nearly no diffrence in games
(im not planning to use the internal graphics)
2700k vs 2600k: very little 2600k vs 2500k: not much
so im planning to get 2500k
so i think theres not a HUGE diffrence between the
i5 2500k vs 2700k? But that its faster with a few
mhz and have hyper threading(is that important for
gaming and video editing) ram: 4gb ddr3 1600mhz is there HUGE diffrence in
gaming between the 1600mhz and the 1333mhz?
And is 4gb enough? Iam on a budget dont see why
i need more than 4gb
Motherboard: asus maximus v gene or maximus v
formula z77(waiting for it to be released) gpu: zotac gtx 670 amp edition(its nearly as good
as 680)
power supply: idk about this one so what you
suggest if im planning to get the above im new here and this is my first post
so plz answer the ques above and the below and
thanks reading !!btw lhikary is my youtube name
1 cheapest parts to run bf3 on ultra with 4xaa on
1440x900 screen
2 theres a small chance i get the above pc and if i got it it will it be enough for GTA V on max?
3 my screen dont have an hdmi port only a vga will
that afeect the quality of the games?
4 if you will suggest me a $850 rig plz b aware of
the following: only 64gb ssd for storage, no disc
drive, motherboard to support both sandy bridge and ivy bridge and it have sli option
and im planning to overcolock the cpu and gpu

More about settings
  1. If you can get a 2500K, maximus V, gtx670, 4GB ram, and a power supply to run it all for under $850 then send me the links to where you bought it at because I want in!
  2. At your range, look for an i5, z77, 7850 build. Skip on SSD and CPU cooler for now and put that money into the GPU.

    At 1440x900 you don't need a whole lot of gpu, but be aware that B33 in milti play does better with more than 1 gig of ram when maxing out AA.

    FXAA is fine but it is not as nice as reg AA. It is a touch blurry (if that is the right term).

    I have to stress, don't go past an i5 and push money into your gpu. 8 gigs of ram is nice and I'd aim for it, 4 gigs is workable if you dont have stuff in the background.
  3. Here is a more realistic gaming build for $850 that will allow you to add another card later on without buying anything more than another card:

    Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz - $220

    ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 - $175

    Seasonic SS-850HT 850W 80Plus Silver Certified, Active PFC Power Supply - $130

    EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 570 HD (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 - $280

    Crucial Ballistix sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - $47

    That all totals up to ~$850

    And yes your monitor only using a VGA and no DVI/HDMI will not look as good as a monitor with DVI/HDMI.
