Hi, I'm building a rig for my bro, budget oriented, he plays only a few games and detail is not very important to him. For example 1440X900 on relatively high settings or 1600x900 on medium is enough. I have so far reached a point where I am considering the i3-3240 with a 7770 gpu on a cheap mobo. The 1st question is which mobo chipset to get, meaning which will suffice b75 perhaps? And the second and most important, he's obsessed with playing bad company 2 and skyrim, but because I ve played both games and noticed that they are really cpu driven how well will the i3 perform in example multiplayer large maps of bad company 2? Is there a chance an amd quadcore with OC might outperform the i3 im thinking in this situation (bfbc2 multi)? If yes, please suggest me a mobo-cpu bundle from AMD cause I'm not really familiar with them. Thanks in advance.
@Loresr97,Azn Cracker,Noob12 thanks for the input.
@iceclock, country of origin is Greece- and not get the 3240 and a 7770 oc, and pay less for the monitor, since in most games to get ~60 fps u need 1440X900 medium with this setup, and also pay less for m/b?? thats why I was concerned about the chipset as well. Isnt the slightly better cpu and gpu worth it?
The reason is because my bro shares the same idea i have for games that if u play one you must have ~60fps, even with the lowest settings mainly because it eliminates any glitch or stutter since all monitors are 60hz. Of course 40 is playable, but theres nothing compared to ~60fps smoothness in my opinion.
