Hey guys, I recently posted concerning a $1200 Battlefield 3 gaming rig. I just found out that I will have to lower my budget to $1000. What would you guys change in the following build in order to reach that $1000 limit? Thanks for the help. I truly appreciate it.
I would drop the SSD and then upgrade the motherboard to the ASRock Z77 Pro4. You can always add a SSD to your rig in the future once you've acquired the cash.
If you won't overclock, There would be a lot of changes (cpu, cooleer and board). If you will overclock, I think the best you could do is go with an HDD first, best bet would be a caviar black. Then add an SDD once you have a budget for it.
