More about prebuilt help
  1. If you want high to max settings, you'll need to up your budget a bit mate, 500 minimum IMHO
  2. Nope sorry your better off buying a console!

    could you give me a link to a gaming desktop that could run at max settings for $500?
  4. there isnt one, i think your expectations are little high for a prebuilt system, you might be able to build one for 500 bucks that might play those games on medium at about 30-40 fps, but for a prebuilt theirs no way with that budget

    can you get me one of those PC part picker lists of what would work for $500? please?
  6. Hope you can recycle some parts. And I went AMD instead of Intel due to budget.

  7. Still don't believe this would do high to max. Depends on the resolution ultimately. You need to dump another $100 into the video card for that to happen.
  8. i play on ultra textures everything else medium and no aa at 55-65 fps 1080p

    Is there any PC out there that is prebuilt and can play BF3 and borderladns 2 on high to max settings? Im only stuck to a $400 budget and really need this. if there is any, please give me a link.


    Even if you already had the OS and a few other minor parts you would really need about $800 to run BF3 at 1080P on high to almost max settings.

    and let me guess, that whole setup you have is quite a bit more than my $500 budget?

    Would the second one hold my harddrive? Look at the harddrive up above and tell me if they will work together. It's 500gb SATA 16for a system cache and 3.5 inches.

    those ones are better for $10-15+
