Monitor resolution is 1920x1080 on the first two builds, but I don't mid lowering the resolution to whatever.

First of all, I am aiming to play Battlefield 3 on mid settings in a server with a LARGE amount of players. Like over 45 players. Both builds consist of 8GB of 1333MHz RAM and a 500GB 7200 RPM HDD.

1. FX 8120 w/ Radeon 6850 (and components above)

or

2. FX 6100 w/ Radon 6870 (and components above)

EDIT:

3. Intel i5 2400 | GTX 550 Ti | Z68 Mobo http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... | 4GB 1600 MHz RAM | 500GB 7200RPMHDD | 1600x900 Monitor

Thanks in advance. ;)

First of all I would like to say you have a very impressive rig yourself!

The mid range PC appealed to me and my price range, but there are a couple of things. Im on a $1000 budget which has to include the components, keyboard, mouse, OS, and monitor. Also, I need the items to come from TigerDirect because they don't charge tax in my state :) . On Tiger, my mouse is Gigabyte M6900 for $30, Logitech K120 for $12, Windows 7 Hone Premium 64bit OEM, and either a $120 1920x1080 Acer monitor or a $100 1600x900 monitor depending on how much money is left in the budget.

My uses are: Gaming, Video editing/rendering, and web browsing.

Thanks for the complement about my rig! :) 

The reason i didnt put any kind of peripherals in my rigs is because those are obvious items that you will buy, for example, if you have a 1000$ to buy a PC BUT you need the OS just say you have a 900$ budget, or in your case calculate the cost of the items you want that are not core components and substrac that from your budget (OS, keyboard, sound system, sound card, monitor, etc) and we will take care of the Case and everything that goes inside of it, unless you want a advise or have any question about certain peripherals, we can help you with that too, now whats your budget excluding obvious things?

btw.. i dindt know that e-tailers charged taxes :o

On Newegg, there are three places where they charge taxes. I'm in one of those, Tennessee. :\

The one you have selected is quite nice, but could you tell me which of the three are the best that I had picked out?

btw... i did the math and you will have to pay about 50$ in taxes if you my build, but consider it a great investement because that rig has a lot of potential, in some time depending in your financials you could add a second 6870 or replace it with a 7850....or replace it with dual 7850 wich will be the ideal upgrade :D
