First Build/ Compatability

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/d6yB

This is my proposed build, wondering if there's any issues that anyone would see. I would be Running ArmA 2/ 3 When it comes out plus BF3 on max graphics looking for it to run cool w/o overclocking and do you have any tips on the build

  2. this is even better than azeem40's build

  3. Both builds feature i5-3570K and GTX670, so any differences will be piddling. Otherwise, there is too much Crappermaster in both of them. In any case, any new gaming PC built today should be Intel, not AMD. Take a look at Rosewill or Antec for cases, and Xigmatek, Corsair, or Noctua for CPU coolers.
  4. the hyper 212 is pretty much the best bang for buck. corsair liquid coolers arent all that great and the a50 isnt always cheap. noctua is good but higher priced.
  5. What would make the Intel sit above the AMD's? especially the FX 8-core
  6. if you dont know, intel DESTROYS amd in games (10fps or so). the only amd option id get is the phenom ii x4 965 BE. even phenom beats fx
  7. not trying to be fanboy though. if you like amd, get phenom
  8. any good in upgradng the i5 to an i7?
  9. no. unless you are like me who needs my system to not get slow enough for me to use 10 years later

    And http://pcpartpicker.com/p/dgKF is cheaper than yours but the same in performance.
  11. i didnt pick the pro series since they have a much lower power phase count (4 phase and they arent like the asus power phases)

    you could have made it even cheaper since the ram costs like 57 dollars.
  12. 4 phase could be sufficent though

    It is. Phases only matter when you OC real high.

  14. id pay the little extra just to be safe. it will work fine though
  15. It's not going to fry the motherboard or anything. I doubt it will be a problem for him.
  16. ok then.
