So if I add everything but the power supply and the Radeon HD I can throw any game at it with no lag on med/high settings?

with the 7850, you can play any game mid/high settings.

no this will have trouble running bf3 if you intend to run multiplayer. bf3 show great improvement with a quad core in 64 player maps. bf3 multiplayer is just as much cpu bound as gpu.

he wasnt asking about any game he was talking about bf3 and the cpu in his case is his limiting factor.

Same cpu+gpu...
See this : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/budget-gaming-do-it...


i dont care about that benchmark, chances are hes not going to be playing much single player and i was talking about multiplayer. bf3 multiplayer is a much different game.

Dual core intel like the pentium g860 hold well, with the 7850, he's not gonna play in ultra...
See the web for dual core sandybridge for BF3 or others, cause it's what the g860, an i3 without the hyper threading.

Are you looking to play BF3 multiplayer? If so, the most important thing to change is your CPU. And for BF3 multi on a budget, AMD is actually the way to go.

"I can throw any game at it with no lag on med/high settings?"

I don't see him mentioning BF3 mp, also the Pentium g860 is faster for gaming than the amd budget cpus.

Does it say mp ?

honestly, those are the best parts for him, i wouldn't change it.

Unless he wants amd :

Will probably gain some fps in bf mp, but in the rest of the games, i don't see why the difference...

very few people play just single player. i assume by your stand on this that you do not have bf3 because most people i know havent even played single player at all.

I don't like military shooters, i don't play bf3 for that matter.
I can't say what performance it will get cause i don't have the cpu in question, but it's a dual core sandybridge, has two fast cores, good enough for a 7850, i can say that in some games like ps2 it will decrease the performance, but you can't put in there an i5-3570k with a budget of 500$ for the pc, what it matter is the gpu for games, and for 1080p gaming the minimum recommend is a 7850.

i agree 100% and the build you proposed is great for the money absolutely but it will have a hard time playing high details in multiplayer because of the cpu being a dual core. that was my only point.

bf3 is a rarity though and in most games no a days the dual core should be ok.

I don't recommend any cpu from the bulldozer architecture, that's in fact a three core cpu, worse than the x4 965 be.
I rather wait for his response and see what's his priorities, if it's in fact bf3 mp and most only that.

yeah i agree. even some benchmark programs are showing bulldozer and piledriver cpus as 2,3, and 4 core cpus instead of 4,6, and 8

The 6100 is 6 cores as far as BF3 multi is concerned, it will stomp a 965 and even non-k SB/IB CPUs in BF3 MP. Note that this is ONLY for BF3 MP, almost any other game would be better with a 965 or even the Pentium.

That's good, now all you're lacking is evidence. Find some multiplayer benchies and then come back. In the mean time, check this out: multiplayer, cpu limited, X6 1100T beating X4 980, and solidly:

More cores lower clocks.

An x6 is not a 6100 though. You'll also see how poorly a dual core did like I said it would.

You cannot add amd cpu to a h61 mobo...
Either go with the X4 965 BE, or the i3 if you can afford it, do not get the FX-6100, it's a triple core not comparable with the real six core 1100t.
Also you can change the case for the one you like.
And if by some reason it doesn't fit the total, get the corsair cx 430w : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

With the second build, I can play BF3, TF2, and the Valve series on MP with Med/High setting with 0% lag at a playable frame rate?

yes good choices. alway like to see people go intel just because they are better. with that i3 you can always go to an i5 or i7 latter as well.
