Hello everyone, i have a $1200 budget for a PC, that can handle Battelfield 3 at low, at minimum 100 fps. Preferred resolution: 1600 x 900 (19 inch monitor) Settings: Low, or Ultra. Preferred website(s): Amazon.com, Alternate.nl, Amazon.de
I already made a small rig, let me know if it's good:
I'm pretty sure 16gb ram doesn't reduce FPS drops when recording lol. Having a fast hard drive would probably do that. If you really need it then go ahead and get it lol.
Grab the 3770k (only $20 more)
Only having one HDD is what will give you FPS drops when recording. Try and get a 1tb HDD and 128gb SSD and record to the opposite one that you are playing your game of off (i think). Recording on HDD and playing a game off of it at the same time stresses it out (once again, i THINK). Don't quote me if i'm wrong, not a fraps expert lol.
-get the i7 3770k
-get the cheapest set of 2x8gb 1600mhz kit of ram. ram doesnt make your fps more stable
-get at least 120gb or 128gb of space on a SSD. you will also want a 1tb 64mb hard drive for storage
-id get a gigabyte z77x-ud3h. the pro 4 is rather low quality
-there are better 670s out there such as the msi power edition or the gigabyte windforce gtx 670. the evga is the hottest running of them all
-if you have a Fractal Define R4 in Holland, get that instead
