I am buying my best friends gaming rig cause he is going overseas for a long time. The Rig in itself isnt too bad, im just wondering about the graphics card and its capability to handle certain games like BF3, MW3, C2, NFS: The Run, Duez ex human rev. etc....on Max to JUST under max settings on a 1680 x 1028 resolution monitor. Specs are as follows for the build:

Case: Antec DF-30

Mobo: Asus P867

CPU: 2nd Gen Core i5 2500k

Memory: 8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance

GPU: XFX Raeon HD6870 1GB

Power Supply: CM GX 750W

Liquid COoling: Antec Kuler 620

Monitor 21" Dell widescreen monitor 1680 x 1028 Max Res

HArd Drive: Wester Digital Caviar Blue 500GB

Optical Drive: DVD Burner

All for $1600 my currency which is Barbadian.....in your currency (Us dollars) that would be $800.

IMO that for 800 us dollars your getting what you paid for. You should be able to play those games at acceptable frames on high settings.

At 1680x1028 res, the card can run max settings on most games. You'll get modified ultra settings for BF3 if you turn off ambient occlusion and lower the anti-aliasing options. Other than that it's a good card though. For upcoming games and the current generation of games 2GB of VRAM is becoming necessary, especially with graphic-intensive games or higher resolution gaming.

I like the CPU as well as everything else about the gaming rig.

Well, i like everything else as well. The only thing I will most likely change soon is the GFX card and get a 7870. I may even wait a bit longer for the nvidia GTX 6XX ti models to come out and make prices drop even more. The 670 is an awesome card but out of my price range so ill wait some more for prices to drop. By christmas time prices should be pretty sexy :sol:
