In a few weeks from now I plan on buying a barebones kit to build so I can have a decent computer on a budget. The purpose of my build will be for a.) playing many of the newer games to come out and b.) also be capable of recording game footage smoothly. I have found 2 builds that may fit my needs for the time being.
As for a HDD and a capable video card I had a compatible HDD, Sapphire HD Radeon 6670 1GB GDDR5, and a 650 watt psu to supply it. I'm not looking for crazy performance or anything but looking for a leap to something better. I'm playing BF3 someone on my current system that is 6 years old (HP Pavillion m7750n) with the video card mentioned above. Thanks.
