120hz build $800 budget

I'm looking for a PC that will be able to run 120 fps at 1920x1080. I will mostly be playing CS:GO and Dota 2. I need a video card, cpu, motherboard, memory and a power supply. I will most likely be overclocking.

No preference on parts, just whatever is best for the price.

Budget Range: $800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming- dota2, cs:go, bf3

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: video card, cpu, memory, motherboard, power supply

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: none

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: dota2 and cs:go @ 120fps

  1. You have the monitor already? For 120fps, you will need to CF/SLI. I suggest two GTX 670s.

    I don't have the monitor yet but I am planning on getting the Samsung S23A700D for $290 on Newegg. Would the games I listed really need that much graphics power to get 120 fps? I don't expect to get it at ultra settings, I would be perfectly fine playing on medium-low.
  3. Bf3 will, so I based that on it. I always suggest for the most demanding game, if they list it. Actually, at your budget, it is not possible.
  4. Agree with him, 800 is just not enough, you'd have to go with 1200 or so.
  5. Alright, how about we get rid of Bf3 as a requirement.
  6. Then you can definitely!
