Hey guys, I'm planning on building a new PC with an 800$ to 900$ budget, and i need help choosing its components like GPU, MOBO....
i have already setup my mind with the core i5-3570k proccessor.
I play all sorts of games ( BF3, COD series, far cry 3, C&Cs, Sniper Elite V2, GTA series, L.A Noir, MAFIA II )and every game i can put my hands on, and play them on maximum settings...

any good suggestions I'd be really gratefull cuz im confused on alot of options :pt1cable:  ...

I recommend changing your mind about the i5-3570k. It's a great processor, but too expensive for a budget that low, especially since you want to game on maximum settings.

The graphics card matters MUCH more than the processor - an i5-3350p with a better graphics card will perform way better than an overclocked i5-3570k with a lesser graphics card.

Rule of thumb is to spend twice on the GPU what you do on the CPU.

30.00 better after market cooler.
myself i go with the 3470 and a slightly better mb if your thinking of sli/crossfire. or buying a larger data drive. or a better case. you could drop the ssd use the 135.00 higher end video card.
myself i go with faster loading ssd. hold off for the newer gpu at the end of this year if you need more fps.
