Ok, i really need to know if all the selected parts i have picked out will fit, eg. the motherboard with the gpu/cpu (also if im forgetting something please let me know.
Processor: amd phenom II X4 965 Black edition 3.4GHz $90-$117 (planning to over clock 3.8ghz to 4ghz
Graphics Card: Powercolor Radeon HD7850 2GB $179
Case: CoolerMaster Elite 334U Case $40
Ram: G.Skill F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT (2x4GB) DDR3 $35
Power Supply: Antec VP450P 450W Power Supply $ 52
Motherboard: ASRock 970DE3-U3S3 Motherboard $69
Optics: Can get from old desktop
HDD: can get from old desktop
Fan: Corsair Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition Case Fan $39 also can get more from old desktop.
OS: have spare windows 7 laying around.
SO FAR: $532
Also if anyone knows a better processor or graphics card at the same price or slightly (very very slightly) higher that would be great. i live in australia so i cant use newegg, i prefer the site PCCG.
And do you know what kinds of FPS i can expect from this rig? games like battlefield, guildwars 2 or borderlands 2 on high or medium settings, do you think i could get 30-40 FPS (im not looking for the same performance in a $2000 computer i plan on upgrading over time, just medium settings on those game at around 30-40 FPS would be great) or is this build really bad and i have no idea?
It all looks good. I would go with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO instead though for a CPU cooler.
Should run the games you want on great settings! I would recommend the i3 though over the Phenom II 965. The 965 is old and dated, as its 3 generations behind now. The i3 is able to outperform it in many categories.
