Couple of questions (Gaming Specs) Please Help!

PC Specs:

- Computer Case Coolermaster Elite 371
- CPU - Intel i5 3570 - (4 x 3.4 GHZ)
- Memory Corsair Vengeance 8GB PC3-12800 1600MHz
- Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD 7950 - 3 GB - (XFX) - (PCI-E) (Plan to switch/crossfire in future)
- Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H (Intel Z77) - VGA/DVI/HDMI
- Power Supply Cooler Master GX Lite 700W PSU - Low Noise
- 1 TB Seagate (1000 GB) SATA-III HDD 7200 RPM 64MB

Will this be able to handle Crysis 3, Dead Space 3, Battlefield 3 at Mid-High/Ultra Resolutions which a stable FPS Count and minimum lag. Also will my motherboard support Crossfire, in case in the future I decide to upgrade. Furthermore, should I just use one hard drive for now, and get another one in the future and if yes, should it be a solid state or a normal one? Also, how long will this PC last for, meaning will it still be able to run games in like 2014? ty

  3. Yup, That's almost exactly the same build I'm getting. You should be able to run everything on Ultra with at least 30fps.

    Ultra and high don really have much of a difference so if in a couple years you start to see some performance issues, just lower the setting a bit.

    Hope it helped.
    Cheers :)
  4. also, if you are planning to Crossfire X in the future. It would be better to just sell your 7950 and get a better card. EG 8950 or something :/

    Crossfire is a good option when you have multiple monitors. But if just running one screen, Its better to get a newer card.

    Cheers :)
  5. Yeah, I'll probably purchase a better single GPU later. I just like the choice to be able to crossfire in case I actually wish to.
