If you need the CPU in that price range I'd suggest getting a Phenom II. traffik_- September 3, 2012 1:14:58 AM bctande1 said:You'd benefit from getting a stronger CPU for that game. i guess i should have specified what kind of games i would be playing sorry lol. traffik_- September 3, 2012 1:17:43 AM montosaurous said:That GPU is too much, I'd cut down to a 6870 and spend more on the CPU, get an i5 if available. If you need the CPU in that price range I'd suggest getting a Phenom II. What kind of build would you suggest to go along with an i5? that isnt over $700 of course. montosaurous September 3, 2012 1:21:19 AM A Phenom II would last longer though, as it is quad. montosaurous September 3, 2012 1:23:15 AM Or you could get more RAM instead, the i3 sounds good for your games. I'd get 8GB if I were you though. traffik_- September 3, 2012 1:26:02 AM montosaurous said:A Phenom II would last longer though, as it is quad. could you recommend me a build around the phenom. i put most of my time into looking for an i3 build and the help would be appreciated.
