Hi everybody i need help to finally decide what i should buy. I want a new pc that could run games like BF3 in a 19" monitor(i already have the monitor) at good fps. And also a pc that dont have to be changed for 3 years or more.
My first build is:
processor: core i3-2120
mobo: asus p8z77-m pro
ram R3 1333 Mhz (2x4Gb) Gskill Sniper CL9 or DDR3 1600 Mhz (2x4Gb) Gskill Sniper CL9 1.25v
hdd: 1tb wd caviar black
gpu: asus gtx 550ti
So, i dont know if the mobo is ok,cuz i probably upgrade the procesor at the end of the year for a i5 or i7 3570K IB (in that case the 1600mhz ram would be better?). I want usb3.0 ports and thats things. Or the mobo is not justified cuz in one year there will be another processor technologies? (like haswell or something like that).
what is your budget? I highly suggest you go for a core 2 quad or an i5 for 3 years future proofing. Depending on your resolution i dont think the 550 ti will give you high settings above 1280x900. I suggest a GTX 460. if you can find one then go for the GTX 285.
