Budget PC for BF3

Hello everyone
Thanks to tomshardware for providing a valuable site. I have spent the last 3 months learning about computer builds and parts from here..

I intend to build a computer this week

My budget is under $800.

90% gaming 10 % internet. FPS games like BF3

I dont require case, keyboard , mouse , router, monitor, speakers, or GPU ( got 2x gtx 275 )

I will buy localy in the south western area of Western Australia, Fremantle / Rockingham. I have checked prices around Australia and postage is a killer .

No brand preferance

No overclocking . Im a tinkerer, ie I play with something till it breaks. I CAN NOT be trusted !

I wish to sli my gtx 275s for a tinker :D . If i have to much trouble with them, I will swap them for a gtx 660 . The gtx 660 is not included in this budget.

My screen resolution is 1650 by 1080.

My aim with this build is to keep the pc for atleast 5 years. If the SLI works as good as some say, I will have the knolledge to decide on what GPU or GPUs to get for a HUGE screen in the future.


Your helpfull information on this build is much appreciated .
