Hey guys, After checking out prices online everywhere, and putting together a decent looking build, I have build this gaming rig to produce around 60 fps in Bf3 and other games, On High- Ultra with no AA, at 1920 Res..

Tell Me what you think.. Im not Asking for your Intel Dual core build.. Ive personally seen the Fx6300 with same setup match the i5 2700k with nearly equal Fps! Also, My builds dont include Optical drives because i dont use one.. and if i need one i have plenty laying around.. Lite-on Ihas 4 drives are like 20 bucks..

don't change a thing!

though methinks in some games that 7850 will struggle a wee bit to maintain ~60 fps on high/ultra settings. but i am sure you'll be happy enough. and on a side note, the only time you'll see a 6300 get the same frame rate as an i5 is when the graphics card is bottlenecking.

cheers

I would change the RAM to a 2 stick set to utilize dual channel memory capabilities.

No problem man, that is what we are here for. Other than that, it is spot on. I really wish he could swing the 7870.

You could swing the 4300 since most games only utilize 4 cores max any way. Plus, this build has the 7870 which will outperform the 7850, but if you can't swing it, go with what you have.

I almost had the 7870.. Newegg had the ghz edition for 199 on openbox asus, but without the $50 cut i cant afford it.. also, Dual channel will be utitlized after i get another stick.. The single stick is on sale for 37.. dual sticks are 47.. So just figured ide save 10 bucks, and when i get my rebates, buy another one..

Also.. The Pcpartpicker has the antex neo for 29.99.. but when i enter the code it doesnt allow it, so its actually 49.99

Oh.. and i dunno if i mentioned.. Every single part is from Newegg.com.. I always buy there, everything i have ever gotten works, well.. and they package it all very nicely! And ship super fast to me.. I must live near one of their centers, i get my 3 day shipping items for free.. In 3 days or under everytime

Haha, Just had an Ingenius idea, Make 7 new email addresses, And get my $10 off for spending $50 with newegg as a new customer.. Save me $70 then i can afford the 7870 and the stick of ram. ;)  and get 60 back in rebate cards instead of 50 ;)  Kinda ghetto of me, but gotta do what i gotta do.. Just took that 600$ pc down to $543 after adding the new stuff and getting the rebates back ;)
