I would like some feedback regarding a new build. It's a budget gaming pc; all parts will be bought
locally, in Lebanon - Beirut.
The games I normally play are: Skyrim, Fallout NV, Hitman Absolution, Crysis 2, Far Cry 3, League of
Legends, Battlefield 3, CODMW3, and so on. Note that the following build will have to play at
1920x1080. Eye candy is not so much of a factor to a certain extent.
I would like to reach a stable 4.5GHz rating on the K series cpu. Can the motherboard pull that off? Should I need an aftermarket cooler?
For $1000 gaming build you can do much better. I put a HD 7770 in my $400 build lol. This sounds like a pre-built website that builds it for you. HD 7770's are like $100 not $160. Build your own it will be alot more performance per dollar.
I did build my own. As I said, I'll be purchasing the parts from a local store. Shipping to Lebanon is kind of a hassle. I am well aware that prices abroad are much cheaper, but that's what I have to make do with.
I appreciate the suggestions. Prices in this country are ridiculous.
Neither. You definitely want the i5 for multiplayer fps's, unless you don't play competitively... but you don't need a 3570k. Get a 3450, and an h77 motherboard (Look at AsRock - Intel themselves don't make amazing motherboards) and a 7870, and you'll be golden.

Bigger display, 21 inches is way too small. Display is the most important part to me then GPU then CPU, ram etc. Go at least 24" if not 27" you wont be disappointed. Spend the extra or save it up and go bigger. Get a 128gb SSD for Windows and a few games will load so much faster and worth the extra it cost.
