My objective for this build is to be able to run games like Crysis 2 at max settings at 45+ fps fir $770ish or less...
After posting my first and second draft build and taking peoples suggestions (http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/874288.aspx) I have a third draft that I'm wondering if people have any further suggestions..
Just click on the part to see more details..
Now, addressing some the comments regarding my case people had earlier.
I chose the case based on a good number of reasons...not just looks..It comes with a total of 4 fans..the panel that the motherboard mounts opens up making it easier for me to install the parts (especially since this is my first build)..
Now, according to this link http://www.techspot.com/review/572-nvidia-geforce-gtx-6...
I should be able to run Crysis 2 at max settings at my desired fps..But someone did mention that the processor could possibly hinder the video cards power..is this true??
If it is true what CPU would you suggest so i could fully harness my video cards power..
Well a Z77 board gives you SRT as well the ability to overclock.
You can push the 3570 to 4-4.2ghz using the turbo multiplier
I think that would push him way over budget. Looking at about double the cost for motherboard and adding a cooler and extra $20 on CPU. He could go cheaper and get the 3470 and save another $20 for 200MHz
