Well, I like to make sure you have the power supply for the cards. What is your power supply?

I would recommend the now really cheap 7850 or the 7870 if you really care about max settings.

If ya looking at 560's, these are the two ya wanna choose from

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

But if ya spending the $230 you were looking at on amazon for alast generation card, I'd be thinking of $300 for a current generation card., I'd be thinking of one of these:

$300 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
w/ Borderlands 2 game

BF3 http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_660_Ti_Power...
Skyrim http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_660_Ti_Power...

Quote:
Overall, MSI did an excellent job improving on the NVIDIA reference design, resulting in a significantly better card. The card's price of $330 is the same as all other GTX 660 Ti cards we reviewed today. At that price the card easily beats AMD's HD 7950 in all important criteria: performance, power, noise, heat, performance per Dollar, performance per Watt.

My own suggestion to anyone building a PC is to wait, build up money, and max out your build.

In my own personal opinion if you are a gamer like me, I'd prefer to buy the latest and greatest to a degree, and then upgrade within 4-5 years.

I currently have a build from late 09 i7 960, 12GB @1600mhz 7-8-7-21, Radeon HD 5970, and a 256GB Crucial M4. To this date I can run any game maxed out or nearly maxed out without AA. In fact I haven't even come across a game that I haven't maxed out. The only games I've ever had problems with are bad console ports.

I intend to upgrade next year if I can accumulate the money and if it is worthwhile.

But if you are a person who doesn't mind lowering settings to fit a game to the right performance go right ahead. But know that you will probably run into problems in the very near future.

My friend had a GeForce 450GS I believe the model was, and he could only run most games on medium to low and some high. Most of his settings on BF3 were medium and low.

I tried to convince him to buy a card that was at least $250, the damn idiot went about a 6950. He went back and forth looking at cards and comparing them to my old HD5970, and as an impulse buy from a sale bought the 6950. It isn't a bad card but I know he still won't be able to run many games like I can with a fairly old card.

My only point is if you are tight on money now and really want a computer now go ahead. It is a good build. But if you want the ultimate bang for your buck and the best gaming experience chalk it up and wait a while. It will be well worth it and if you have high end equipment and want to upgrade at an earlier time than my 4-5 year scope you can sell what you have at a better price as opposed to a Geforce 560.

But that is a solid build.


(edit) Just wanted to state that my build can beat a lot of current builds and especially most of my friends who brag about having 24GBs of RAM and a Six core CPU. I do a lot of research before I make my purchases because I am not rich and can't afford to second guess or regret a purchase as I can not go back on it. This is my main thing.

Also prices go down quickly.
What you buy today can be bought in a few months for a quarter less.

So will these gtx 560 run mainly skyrim, mass effect 3, and bf3 on high-max?

If not will this gtx 560 ti?

Or would it be worth it to get a 7850?

I'm doing my first build and really could use the help. Thanks for any answers guys.]So will these gtx 560 run mainly skyrim, mass effect 3, and bf3 on high-max?

No reason to get a 560 with the AMD 7800 series out. 7850/7870 can be had for around the same price of a 560/560ti and they are faster. You can also get a 660ti if you are in the $300 range!

No reason to get last gen with current gen at same price with more performance

Ditch the Chokemax PSU-shaped object! Get a PSU from Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX, Enermax/LEPA, or FSP. For the cards you are contemplating, 550W is a decent amount.
I'd also highly suggest you consider an Intel i3-based system. As recent articles and benchmarks make clear, AMD no longer holds a performance edge in games at any price point.
Finally, Biostar is nowhere near the head of the list of mobos I'd choose. Asus, ASRock, and Gigabyte are all better choices; MSI is mixed, with their cheaper boards in particular known for weak VRMs: http://www.overclock.net/a/about-vrms-mosfets-motherboa...

I would get rid of that power supply for sure. Swap in something more reliable, like that of Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or PC Power & Cooling.

Thanks for everyones tips and advice, but this is probably the best advice. Getting a little ahead of myself I guess. Think I'm going to save up and buy the quality stuff so I won't have to upgrade in a year or have something *** out on me.
