I am looking for an amazing gaming desktop to run MW3 and Black op's 2 on high (preferably ultra) on a consistent and smooth FPS. I am new to building computers this will be my first ever computer and I want it to last me for at least 4 years.
Approximate Purchase Date: Christmas Day.
Budget Range: $700 - 1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Sole Purpose: MW3 and BO2, 60+ FPS on ultra/max settings (high settings if ultra/max is not possible with my budget), I would like my minimum FPS to be in the 45-60 range.
I have looked at Alienware's x51 but I don't think that will be able to handle MW3 or Black op's 2 on high or even ultra
I assempled this build on the iBuyPower Website What can I fix to save money and will I be able to play black op's and mw3 on ultra or max? and how much fps should I get with this build if anyone has a better build for a lower price please let me know and also will my build overheat? I'm very worried about that.
Parts Not Required: Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers
Overclocking: If necessary and not too much - I do not wish for my computer to overheat and die
Additional Comments: Please let me know if you have any questions
I am eager to read through your builds, advice, suggestions and guidelines. Thank you for your valued time!
well you have a couple options .. but i would say a 7870 would be a good match or a 660 ti .. there about in that range saying you plan to play at 1080p .. if its a lower resolution then that you could possibly go with a less powerful card.. but i would say that is your starting point .. if your going for a higher end card get the 7970 GHZ edition ..
keep in mind that around dec/jan time frame amd will come out with the newer graphic cards.. so if you hold out a little longer you might be able to get a better deal and make sure to take advantage of cyber monday and black friday if possible. to get the good deals.
