Hey guys, I'm attempting to build the best gaming system possible for about $500 (more or less). I plan on playing Battlefield 3 for the most part. Are these parts compatible? Do you have any recommendations? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
First things first I'll just say this.
A CPU's performance isn't measured by the number of it's core or the frequency at which they are running.
And secondly a graphics card's performance has almost nothing to do with its memory's capacity.
The PC i made you is far better than the one you made yourself or the one nix327 made you.
Well i did say that the h77 mobo will let him upgrade in the future..when haswell comes out the prices for ivy and sandy bridge will come down as well..I have nothing against an AMD build though..This will give you a general idea about how the phenom II will perform against the pentium (its a g850)
