Please evaluate this gaming specs

I was assigned at work to provide specifications details for a gaming PC. and to be honest i dont know the current standards of building such gaming machine, below details were taken from the required specification to run battlefield 3. i just figured it would be a good benchmark.

It doesnt have to be a hardcore gaming machine, something that could run today's game smoothly would suffice.

I would greatly appreciate if you can share your expertise in here.

Processor: i5 3570k

RAM: 8gb DDR3 1600mhz

VGA: ATI Radeon 6950

HDD: 1TB

SoundCard: Direct X compatible sound card

27" Monitor

Optional:

Logitech Headset
Cyborg M.M.O.7 Gaming Mouse

  1. dont buy a 6950 . A newer 7850 or 7870 is a better option [ depending on price ]

    the motherboard has onboard sound . use that
  2. Well a 6950 and a 3570K should get you High and mixed ultra settings... with ok frame rates on BF3

    Thats what he's interpreted from the "Recommended specs" and modified.. thats not his actual final build i don't think
  4. what else is needed? what can you recommend for a motherboard?
  5. Well it depends what you want to spend on the mother board. A decent mobo will cost you 130 or 150. But with sales.... You can get a z77 extreme4 now to 104 and its a great motherboard for the money
