I'm building a new computer soon with a budget of £1000. I will be using the computer mainly for gaming such as BF3 and Dota but also obviously for surfing and skyping. I need this computer to last me at least 4-5 years so I need to keep that in mind.
I've been reading around on forums and people say there's no point in getting a i7 for gaming since hyperthreading is useless for it. I need this computer to last me 4-5 years so I really don't know if an i5 will last me that long.
I'm planning on the i5 3570k along with a GTX 670 or a HD 7970. This set up should allow me to play games such as Battlefield for the next 4 years right? I don't mind playing on minimum settings as long as I can play it
Then yes it should work great;))) gtx 670 goes very similar to 7950...so 7970 better but its all about the money..since you can overclock 7950 to 7970 easy..find 7950 7970 or gtx 670 for a best proce and buy it...i prefer asus or gigabyte cards;))
