If you can afford to spend a bit more : http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/AWNi Includes a better card. zeriasis February 2, 2013 2:15:44 AM Don't most games run at least off a quad core processor tho now? Bluey12345 February 2, 2013 2:16:26 AM I really like this case : CoolerMaster CM Storm Scout djangoringo a b 4 Gaming a c 110 U Graphics card February 2, 2013 2:19:21 AM The i3 is fine for gaming, no bottleneck with it. That's more expensive case for the budget, for this kind of budget a decent case like the elite 430 will do. completelyrandomname a b U Graphics card February 2, 2013 2:20:48 AM Highly recommend the "If you can afford to spend a bit more" build. Most games are still optimized for dual core actually. But it will run a bit better depending on your setup. Gaming on dual cores is still acceptable and will perform great. zeriasis February 2, 2013 3:03:39 AM But for BF3 on High??? Wouldn't a dual core just not cut it for that type of play? I'm sorry I'm just new and asking a bunch of questions. djangoringo a b 4 Gaming a c 110 U Graphics card February 2, 2013 3:07:07 AM Nope, it doesn't bottleneck the cards in question, in fact for BF3 it will be limited mostly for the gpu, a 650 ti or 7770 doesn't cut it for 1080p ultra. completelyrandomname a b U Graphics card February 2, 2013 1:07:29 PM http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/fx-4170-core-i3-322... haHA! Keep in mind that the test was done using a 7970 so just expect around 3-40 FPS on average. e_X February 2, 2013 4:34:47 PM If you are willing to overclock then you should go with a fx 6300 Can't find your answer ?
