Hey, can you guys choose parts out for me from top to buttom case to everything. My budget is around $600, I need a gaming pc. So if you guys don't mind recommend me parts to build one. Thanks alot! I would really like it if it will let me be able to play battle field 3 on atleast medium setting.
The total for this everything computer is $753.90 and it does include everything needed fora complete Pc , monitor , keyboard , mouse , OS and the Pc itself. Since you'll be needing everything I don't see how your going to get it for around $600 unless you consider $753 as being around $600. These are not high priced parts here and there is not much to do to get lower and still have a Pc that will game.
i know 380 watts on psu and H67 will definetly give no room for overclocking, but look the video card i squeezed, i mean you have to sacrifice some things you have to admit that for 700 dlls its a nice machine and 7850 its a lot better than 6870, power consumption and performances wise is alot better
putting any older card would suggest a better PSU and that raises prices
overclocking cpu implicates at least 80dlls more in investment, remember he is traying to play BF3 and i3 with a 7850 (which you could overclock to 7870 level) will get pretty good the jo0b done,
taking in consideration that its a heck of a system for anything else
The total for this build is now $688.92 and if you want to make any changes then it will add to this total. The cpu is a quad core and will be good for gaming as will the video card. The cpu does not have an unlocked multiplier so the overclocking is severly limited , if you want a cpu that can be overclocked then you have to get the i5-2500k which is $30 more. So that would be your choice , the same goes for the case since it was chosen to keep the cost down , if you want a better case then again it will cost you more.
So the bottom line is that everything can be reworked to have different parts according to your likes and dislikes.
4gb of ram with a SSD will get everything done Nicely you have to admit no more is necessary
i know we like 8gb i have myself 8gb of ram but lets stick to the fact that this dude is trying to put the best performance for a budget, i know overclocking cpu can give a boost of at least 10% in the games but its not worth it, its better to overclock the GPU and to have a Fast as hell operating system with an SSD (OS) + HDD (storage)
The only advantage a SSD gives you in gaming is that the maps will load faster and that's it. So on a tight budget a SSD is a luxury you cannot aford and the money will be better pent on a video card then a cpu.
