So will it do ? (upgradeeee)


This is more of a editing my current build more then anything else, on my other thread i was recommended a Intel build so i made one.

I tried to make it as beastly as possible and also looked at other peoples build to see how they have done it, so here it is

If you have any improvements then please do add the pcpartpicker link and name the improvement

Requirements: i want to be able to record game play so i can put it on YouTube, I'm looking at the high spec games like Battlefield 3 at 1080p quality on ultra/max/high setting and still be able to get 60FPS

I was recommended a SSD drive and i got one for that and really I'm just looking for more improvement,

Also i live in England and most the US shops do not deliver to me and my price range is anything under £1000 :o :pt1cable:

Thank You,

  4. ^ i fix some parts from your previous build. you need 7970 to handle BF3 at highest setting
  5. you said an upgrade on CPU yet it has gone down, and the ram too, but i do like the new video card
  6. i thought you were on tight 900 euro budget

    3770k is for pro rendering works, performs similar with 3570k on gaming
    8GB is already plenty for games, not for pro software
  7. kool thank you that helps a lot and 1000 pounds not euros

    it isn't the tightest, but would you recommend that i get 2 7970 2GB graphics card rather then 1 3gb as it will cost £40 more but get that bit extra

    Also are you sure i would be able to record gameplay with that set up ? because it saves me a bit of money
  8. afaik, toms' popular concensus is : get a single highest graphic card available, if still need performance, get another similar card for SLI/crossfire

    sli/cf for low-mid end cards arent recommended as it comes with more problem
