I used pc part picker to put everything on the same page. I just wanted to know if my CPU will bottle neck my 660 ti that I wanted to get. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. thanks.

yeah ihad the idea of getting the standard i5 2500k but I am on a budget and was looking at AMD and apparently the FX-8150 was the only good cpu other than this one which was comparable to it and only at 90 bucks...I have some time but that is the only think that I was think of. and I would have to change the mobo but I have two builds, one with AMD and the other with Intel.

i want to be around the 750 dollar range, and i dont need a HDD because i have a 1TB from my dad. And i can get t the i5 2500k for 160 at micro center down the road. Also, im not looking for the fanciest case, that isnt that important to me.

$20 over budget, but since you have a Microcenter near you, you should be able to get the CPU and mobo for dirt cheap. You may even be able to afford the 670 lol.

Depends on what your playing. What kind of games do you play and at what setting do you want them at, your monitor resolution will also help.

Arma2 isnt the most optimized game in the world lol. Bf4 will definitely require a good card to play on high or ultra at 1080p. Definitely a 670, if you can afford it.

yeah the 3GB of the 60 ti is 30 over my budget but the 670 will be 70 over...a little soul searching and working hard haha, but do you think the 660 ti willl be able to hold up?

It should, but you might want to check out the 7870 or the 7950 to see if it goes over budget. AMD has already cut the prices on the 7xxx cards by $50 so it shouldnt put much of a strain.

i looked at the 7950 but the ting was that it didnt compare to the 670 nor the 660 ti in the benchmarks, and ive always had a hard on for Nvidia

This Ivy Bridge cpu down below doesn't over clock but it doesn't need to. It will run circles around that AMD cpu not to mention you don't need the after market cpu heat sink and over clocking with IB cpu's doesn't gain you much in regards to FPS. Also these MSI cards come with an excellent over clocking utility so save yourself some $ and take a few minutes to over clock the card yourself.
