Just settled down and bought a house, looking to get back into gaming. I have a steady job, and a pretty good budget. My current interest is to build a gaming computer for Battlefield 4, but since that isn't going to be coming out for a year, I suppose I'll build a gaming computer for Black Ops 2. After looking at the system requirements I was surprised to see that they are a little higher then expected. I'm just your ordinary casual gamer, so I'm not looking for a computer to be able to do so many things with. I will be using it only for gaming. So, general question - How much do you think I'm looking at to build a computer to be able to play Black Ops 2 on medium settings?

Quite honestly, I have a budget of $800. But this isn't Battlefield 3, so do you think I could get away with maybe $400? If not $475?

An $800 build will easily smoke that game.

Realistically, if it's tower only ( no os, no monitor included) it would be about $500 to $600 range.

Lets go ahead and make that a Z77 motherboard so he can throw in an i5 when BF4 comes out.

Z75 is more or less the same so he can go up to an i5 if he wants to upgrade.

Cutebeans, thank you very much. I plan on purchasing this possibly next week. Is there ANY information, advice, suggestions, or anything I should know relevant to purchasing this pc? I stated I only needed it to run medium, which is all I need, but do you think it could handle the game on max? Also, I plan on using Team Speak 3, a voice chat system for gamers to communicate while gaming, do you think I will be able to run this easy going program while gaming without an issue?

Yeah that will be fine for medium/high settings. IF you wanted to up your budget a little bit this would run you on high settings and would be a good build for when you get BF4 and you wont have to upgrade anything.

Obviously more expensive but is a really good build for the price.

EDIT: That build has Windows 7 in it, I'm not sure if you need that or not. If you don't need it then subtract $91.

Hello, i was just wondering if the heatsink and fan has been left out purposely or not. i am not a techwiz but am just wondering what fan and heatsink would be needed if it is required even though i am pretty sure it's required.

The Intel Core i3-3220 comes with a heatsink and fan. All retail boxed CPUs do.
