Hey guys, I'm wondering if you could give me any any build ideas for me. My budget is $566 and I play modern FPS like BF3. I also play the Valve series as well. My resolution I want to play on is 1920x1080 with medium and high settings, please include a disc drive in your builds too + Windows 7, NO MAIL IN REBATES PLEASE.

his build will run better because of the graphic card. except the ram he chose is only 1333mhz and mines 1600mhz will still affect pc performance a bit.

The mobo only supports 1333 mhz speeds ram max.
This would do for any game at high settings with decent fps with a quad core and a 7850.

Hi, high settings most of the games, some could be at mid settings @1080p.
For battlefield it's good to have a quad-core, and most games at least a 7850.

better mobo. and ram. and powersupply.

this is what u want.

his build is good but has less good quality parts in the mobo, slower ram. and less good ps.

but still is decent.

id say medium to high depending on the game.
