Hi, I'm wondering how will this system work for Battlefield 3 and Arma 2 DayZ (mostly gaming computer). what would be better and why?
I know the bulild needs some other pars as case.
question for a friend
The Intel build is much better. The i5 3570k is superior to ALL of the AMD processors, at stock speeds AND overclocked, and the 7850 is equivalent to the GTX660, so the cheaper of the two would be the better deal. The Z77 is also better for overclocking, and has more features overall. The 3570k overclocks a LOT better. The second build wins in every aspect.
^ The 7870 is $230 now too... That review is kind of old.
Also, you should be focusing more on a GPU than CPU with BF3. Quite honestly, all the reviewers I've seen have shown that Piledriver matches up with Intel chips in graphically demanding games like BF3 or Metro 2033.
Im in iceland, I checkt on your post but some things aren't in my country. http://www.vaktin.is/ this is what is sold in my country and it is EXPENSIVE
Harðir diskar=Hard drive,
For simplicity, just go i5 3570K. Those retailers don't even sell the FX-6300, Piledriver chips in general. The i5 3570K is a better chip, but the money you save on the FX-6300 will allow for a better GPU. Seeing as you can't get it (FX-6300) anyways, just go Intel..
Also, per the price, go with the 7950, it's almost the same price and it's much much better. If not the 660 Ti is fine.
