I need help configuring a new system I am planning on building, but I have to limit my CPU, GPU and MOBO price down to 475$ as I have the rest of the parts picked but I cannot seem to decide well on these parts.
I am planning on building a computer to play modern games (BF3, MP3, FC3, lots of 3s) at 1920x1080 w/ playable framerates (30+ FPS), and am looking for a CPU that will not bottleneck the GPU, and a MOBO with a UEFI BIOs. I do not know if this asking for a lot, but I am just having a lot of trouble and appreciate it if someone can assist me.
The rest get the suggestions of bigcyco1.
You need a z77 mobo for the i5-3570k and an aftermarket cooler, that is, for taking advantage of the cpu, it will be over the budget with any 7850.
You'll be fine with the i5-3470 and the asrock mobo is a good one for it's price, you won't find any better, just get the 660 gtx, cause it's better than any 7850.
I've heard rumors that the 192-bit interface on both the 60s could possibly ruin any future of 1920x1080 gaming with some AA. I also have a liquid cooler I bought a while back before I got stuck on a budget.
