New Specs Please

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.

More about specs please
  1. Nothing on earth can play Witcher 2 on ultra at 120 FPS
  2. Best answer
    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.

    I assume if your investing this much cash you can work out small things like SSD's and cooling.
  3. 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.
