  4. Thank you to the two who gave me a build. Next time i ask i will make sure to put it in the correct terms.
  5. We still need the information to help you though.
    All these builds are assuming you live in the US, and that you have an OS, Monitor, etc.
  6. Your going to play BF3 multiplayer correct?
  7. If BF3 Multi-player is your goal, you will need a quad core for seamless play. a i3 2120 plays well on most multi-player 64 maps, but can be occasionally laggy on some. this is according to my son playing on our HTTP i3 2120/HD 6850 on high settings vs playing on his i7 2600K/GTX 570 system. he's says its still playable but he does notice. single play he sees no difference.

    Slightly over $500 but a solid system for BF3. It even has SATA 6G and USB 3.0.
