Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD

Graphics Card: XFX AMD Radeon HD 6770

Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 AM3 3.4Ghz 512KB 45NM 125W 4000MHZ

RAM: Corsair 8GB XMS3 (1x 8GB) DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz 240-Pin 8 Not a kit (Single)

Storage Device: Crucial 256 GB m4 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s

Power Supply Unit: Cool Power Gamer CP-G980 980W 20+4-pin Blue LED Fan ATX Power Supply w/SATA, PCI-E & Dual 12V Rails

Tower Case: Inferno ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case

My budget is around $800-$900. All I want is a Gaming PC that can play games like Crysis 2, BF3, or ARMAII on highest settings without any frame rate drop what so ever.

If some of the parts are not compatible or I am missing something please feel free to suggest or add.

Thanks to who ever takes the time to actually go though this and help me out. You will be remembered.

i am sorry if this sounds rude: there are so many things wrong, i do not know where to begin. you where very wise in asking for an opinion.

please do not buy that 6770 or power supply especially. you do not need that big of a SSD and it helps to have a hard disk also (for a lot of reasons).

You don't sound rude at all. If you where being rude I would deserve it anyways for making such a stupid mistake. Thank you for your feedback. What would you suggest in place of the graphics card, power supply and ssd?

If you don't need an OS and Monitor I would probably go with a I5/7850 build.


IMO, Definitely should get a smaller SSD. Get a >100GB one for the OS and a nice 500GB hard drive.

Also unless you plan on sli/crossfire that PSU is overkill. Unreliable brand anyways. I think you would be much safer with a quality Corsair 500w

a 550-550 watt quality psu is enough power for any single graphics card solution. the 7850 is about the best bang for you buck higher mid-range card. a ~128 gig SSD is enough to install the OS, games and applications. use the hard drive for vidoes, music and documents along with the windows page file (google for guides, lots of them). i did pick a lock cpu, it cannot be overclocked much if at all and the B75 chipset woun't be able to overclock any cpu. but those along with the 7850 card will get you gaming at a decent frame rate in most any game today. (45-60 maybe depending on your resolution)

hope this helps.

Well I would like at LEAST a 600 watt or more just in case I want to upgrade/add more components. As for the graphics card, what about this one?

And what if I wanted to play the the games listed in high resolution at 60FPS? What parts would you suggest for that? The price at the highest can go up to around $1000. I just want to get the best from my PC for gaming, but without it being ridiculously over priced.

Don`t buy anything yet. It`s great that you stopped and asked what`s up and if any tweaks are needed. Yea, I would offer to try newegg first of all. Secondly, start over with the system plan. $900 can build a really nice PC.

Thanks for your reply! I may take this into consideration with addition of an SSD. But fist I want to know, will this be able to push out enough power to run a PC Game like ARMA 3 on highest settings at 60 FPS? I really hope this is not too much to ask of me. I am not the best at determining these kind of things and I am fairly new to the concept of building my own PC. I just want to be completely sure about this.

everything already as per you want.. you want overclock? i give you unlock ivy-bridge 3570k, z77 mobo of Asrock, 650W psu, able to serve you overclock.. Asus HD 7850 DCU II GPU.. it will always give you a very decent performance.. i include CM 212 EVO heatsink and it make you ready to overclock..
SSD is not compulsory item.. yes it will give a little bit benefit (safety and a bit faster) on your windows system, but what is the percentage of your windows system problem? very very small.. and SSD keep dropping their price over the years.. wait till next year, then u may buy it much much cheaper than now.

Actually this is great. $24 over the highest price but I can manage. And you are completely certain all of these parts are compatible with eachother? (Not to insult your intelligence. I am sure you know what you are doing, it is just that I do not.)

yes sir, completely compatible.

one good thing about pcpartpicker.com it won't let you pick an AMD cpu with an intel motherboard as an example.
