Ask in 2 or 3 months cause the prices and hardware available will be different at that time. No sense in asking now.

3 months is when I'm making mine as well, and just as vrumor stated it's best to wait like me until that time for new things to come out.

I will say that in order to get BF3 on high in 1080p at a $750 budget will be very tight. Don't expect flawless gameplay with no screen tears or frame rate drops.

I'm beginning to notice a trend of people asking for a Battlefield 3 high settings rig for $750.

In short, its just barely possible (dont expect the best settings, but its up there), but you will end up with a pretty unbalanced rig that will literally only game. Massive GPU being supported with a CPU just strong enough not to bottleneck it, on the cheapest mobo you can find.

So lets do this.

CPU: i3-2120. $125
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: HD7850. $250
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: G.Skill 8GB 1600Mhz. $47
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard: AsRock h77 Pro4-M. $90
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: Silverstone Essential series 600W. $65
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM. $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case: Zalman Z9+. $64
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Totals to $741, so cutting it close. You better have a copy of Windows otherwise you'l be forced over-budget as its another $100.

Remember to overclock that Graphics card for more performance, if you can get close to HD7870 performance, you'v just gained yourself $100 in performance.

So u mean this can run bf3 on high settings?Cause a guy recommended me this:


I5 2400
EVGA GTX 480
Western digital caviar blue 500gb
Corsair cx500
ZALMAN Z9
G.skill Sniper 8gb 2x4 1333
Lg dvd burner 24x dvd+r
Samsung s22a/b300 led 21.5 1920x1080
Asus p8h61

He said it will run bf3 from high-ultra settings is it true

Thats because its the same guy who posted it seriously at least 8 times in 10 days, then he changed his nick.

negative - 560ti is the smallest I would go in the Nvidia line to try for Ultra on the back to Karkand maps. I have a regular 560 and it does the job, but there is a noticeable drop in FPS from the launch maps and the expansion maps.

I am looking to upgrade to a 670 or 680 but I am going to wait for a sweet deal on an EVGA or ASUS. My 560 does what it needs to do, but would benefit from a nice nap in my backup rig.

Paolo220 is the guy who suggsted me that he said he bought the rig a few days ago he is a bestfriend why what is he doing here.he said he played it on ultra at 60+ fps.

I think if you are playing multi-player 64 maps you will need a quad core CPU (i5 2300/2400/3450/3550). A i3 dual core will intermittently LAG on some maps. My son says it still playable on our HTPC i3 2120 HD 6850 OC (high settings). He doesn't notice it on his gaming rig i7 2600K/GXT 570. I swapped the GPU's in them and the LAG still occasionally pops up on the i3.

This build is impossible. Even without needing a mouse, keyboard, and os, you still need a 1080p monitor and as you said you wanted to play it on max settings which is $200 right there. Then you need it least a $200 graphics card, a decent $100 mobo, and a $200 i5 processor. Thats $700 and we haven't even covered the hard drive, power supply, RAM, case, and dvd burner.

For what you're asking, you're looking at around $1000. Even if you could somehow squeeze a rig that can play it on high at that budget, you'd be overclocking like mad and would have a noisy pc, which isn't what you want.

I call bullshit, just impossible for $750 (assuming 1080p here, maybe 720p as well).
If that was all it would cost, why the hell would people spend $1500+ on gaming rigs and why would high end graphic cards exist? If it were possible to get that much performance for $750, the whole top end of the market would have collapsed.

60FPS is not achievable within the OP's budget if needs a 1080p monitor included, 40FPS yes (see other post).

60 FPS at 1920 x 1080 BF3 on Ultra takes a GTX 580 or better
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graph...
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graph...

40 FPS at 1920x1080 takes an OC'd GTX 560/OC'd HD 6950 or stock HD 6970
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-560-ben...
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graph...

I saw that the recommended system had a GTX 480 in it. the 480 perform slightly worset than a GTX 570 which weighs in at 48 FPS on ultra, but better than a GTX 560OC the hits only 40FPS. I doubt his friend actually gets 60FPS with MSAA turned on.

I would say, yes at +40FPS not 60FPS though.

Pricing that system out on newegg today shows it to be $846 without shipping

to stay within your budget you will need to make some changes.

keeping with quad core CPU adding a lesser GPU still capable of 40FPS on Ultra at 1080p and trying not to cheap out on the case or put in a tiny HDD, here is what I came up with:

Just for those with doubts on the GTX 480's power:


nice vid. the 480 ran in the mid to high 50's most of the time dropping into the low 40's only occasionally.
