Hello tomshardware community, I need help in building a new PC. I need a PC that can run Witcher 2 and Battlefield 3 with constant 120 fps, i mean constant. I don't mind the budget. Cause I am tired playing Battlefield 3 and Witcher 2 on High settings only @ 1080p. I need Ultra settings. Thank you very much.

Battlefield 3 at ONLY high settings on 1080p at 60FPS, however do you cope?

Sarcasm aside, your looking at some serious hardware. I'm guessing that you have a 120Hz monitor? Because otherwise 60FPS is the max your going to see. And I'm guessing that to get a resolution above 1080p you'r running triple monitors? So three 120Hz monitors and you want to run the most graphically intensive games around at a constant 120FPS, I hope you have a bottomless wallet.

X79 is slower in gaming so I'd stick w/ IB and the Asus 670 TOP is faster than the 7970 Ghz Edition. Since budget not an issue, I'm gonna spend it :)  .... well $2500 of it.
