This is a build for my cousin , Her monitor res is 1440 x 900 and her primary interest is bf3 multiplayer, She has a HDD , case and power supply already
(350W antec)

I went with these parts
Quad core , can add a 6570 later on for better performance.

Cheap mobo


She will not be upgrading this PC at all, overclocking IS a possibility.

If you could put in another $50 into the GPU, it'll be much better. I'd recommend a 7750, which should do fine at 1440x900.

6570 wouldn't run BF3 very well even at a low resolution, however a 7750 is much better for that.

Everything else looks solid.

EDIT: NVM Didn't realise you were going to combine 6570 with your onboard.

yeah , She said that later on she could just grab a 6570 for like $40 and use that to boost her performance. getting a 7750 would make the budget $300.....

just a little over AU$200, but a bit stronger:

Hmm I think for the $18 extra it'll be worth it. Thanks.

Going with the Trinity A8-5600K APU is really the way to go -- I went with the 65w to save cash; also thinking the AsRock motherboard likely will not OC with the big boys and was a better fit with the 5600k.

I'm avoiding the Asus F2A85-M PRO FM2 A85X with the Trinity 5600k APU :lol:  as there is a $195 combo on the Egg. I suspect in that combo there is 4GHz+ inside with the graphics engine at 900MHz or so.

It doesn't help the situation that a low-profile HD6570 and some ddr3 2133MHz would only add $100 or so, and I've got an OCZ SSD laying around .... might make a snappy little HTPC if it comes together ...
