More about what kind performance give
  1. That is what I will have after my upgrades and it will play bf3 @ ultra like 40 fps.
  2. Best answer
    You can overclock your cpu to 4.5ghz easy and maybe 4.6ghz

    Im running the ivy 3570k @ 4.5ghz and they run hotter so you will be fine

    With that 7850 you can probably run on ultra without AA

    Here a bf3 video running on your CPU and GPU:
  3. Oooh. BF3 Ultra - :D

    In that video his processor isn't OCed, so I assume it would be even better than that?

    I'll probably buy it soon.
  4. Overclocking will give a performance boost but not by much though

    It will play BF3 fine though ranging anywhere from 50-100+ fps depending on the map size and whats going on

    So your set!

    Case looks blah though
  5. Yeah, my budget is kind of strict right now. All the parts cost a little more off Newegg for Canadians, so the total with shipping comes to $1084.00. Basically, my parents are giving me $600 towards the PC as a gift, and then I am going to match my allowance with my bank account funds, so basically that means $250 from each. Depending how much money I have in a month or two when I buy the parts, I might upgrade the case. Its pretty ugly.
  6. if I were i would get a summer job and save up money the first month, then you can buy an a killer computer.

    What i did was i had my mom pay through her credit card and she payed the bill, now i just give here 300-700 a month to pay her back
  7. I'll try to get a job. My parents won't let me borrow.
  8. by all means this build is good and you should get it if you really want, you can search for jobs in the mean time and slowly upgrade your machine :)
  9. i would change the 2500k to the 3570k its only about $10 bucks more
  10. Oh, Ok. That makes a lot more sense, I didn't notice it.

  11. Wait! One more question. I was just digging around in my room and I found an old XP disk with product key and stuff. Would there be like incompatibility issues or anything if I were to use it? Its 32 bit, so would that cause problems?

  12. you could only use 4 gb with that os...get win 7 hp 64 bit
  13. Ok.
