Hello,

I'm building a new gaming system, and after do research and looking in the local market, I decided to pick up the following parts which will be within my budget.

CPU --> Core i5-3570 195.75 US$
Fan/Heat sink --> CM Hyper 212 EVO 36.75 US$
Motherboard --> Gigabyte GA-H77M-UD3H 125.5 US$
RAM --> Kingston HyperX 8GB DDR3-1600 57.25 US$
Video Card --> Sapphire HD 7850 2GB 220.0 US$
PSU --> SeaSonic M12II 520W Bronze 65.25 US$
System Drive --> A-DATA 128GB 146.75 US$
Storage Drive --> WD 2TB Green 155.00 US$
Optical drive --> MSI 24X DVD Burner 23.75 US$
Case --> Cooler Master K350 OR K380 45.75 US$

Total = 1,071.75 US$

Is this system able to play the most demanding games (Crysis, BF3, Metro 2033, Witcher 2, GTA 4, Arma 2, etc...) on acceptable settings (High to very high) on 1080P 26" monitor with minimum FPS = 30, Average =40-60 or more.

I need your advice please :)

For high framerates on 1080p, I'd jump to the 7870. Otherwise it looks like a solid build. 7850 will probably work, but you might be lowering a few settings to get those framerates.

Also, you aren't in the US are you? If so, those are terrible prices on the RAM, GPU and drives.

Thank you for reply
No, I'm not in the US, I know that some parts are expensive specially the drives, but this is the best prices I've found

Radeon HD 7870 2 GB 293.5 US$
GeForce GTX 660 2GB 260.75 US$
Radeon HD 7850 2 GB 220.0 US$
Radeon GTX 650 Ti 1 GB 195.75 US$

And since my budget is limited, I thought that HD 7850 would be the best bang for the money, isn't that so?

For RAM I've misspelled the price, It should be 47.25 US$.

He hasn't selected an overclockable board. Remember US get the cheapest in everything electronical, so even though it might be a few bucks in the US, it can be like $30- 40 dollars in other countries.

Best solution

With those prices, I would probably pick the 7850, too. (I have one). It will do well at 1080p, but you won't be able to totally max out the settings on all games, and particularly not the highest Anti-Aliasing. 7870 is only about $30 more here in the states, so I didn't think it would be so much more.
