I'm building a new computer and was wondering what games this build would be able to run?
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BniF
My budget is roughly around 560 so if you have any better ideas please add them :) 

More about : run

Ditch that psu, raidmax psus are garbage, get a 7850 with 2GB, also that ram is expensive, you'll not have any gains with it.

Max budget is about 560 - 580 before rebates as i don't know much about rebates. And I don't really need an OS... i will try to switch from my computer now...

ad the 1 gb version of the 7850 gets better fps for most games. only games like skyriom and big games have a big effect on fps
2gb per price is not worth it.

Just ditch the psu and get this : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Bshk

If you consider an intel build, i suggest this : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Bskb

It has a better cpu, a 7850 2GB, cheaper ram, a good decent psu all under your budget without rebates.
The custom parts are from ncix, pcpartpicker is bugged, it doesn't show ncix parts.
The psu is this : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=62331&vpn=VP450&manufa...
The ram is this : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74758&promoid=1292
The cpu is this : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=75429&promoid=1292

All those three parts have free shipping all together.

i wouldn't consider that a much better cpu at all...
it is more expensive and the clock rates of the quad are faster and it has 2 more cores.

The i3 has faster cores, it's better for gaming, and has a lower power consumption, you can't compare the speeds of the amd with the intel, different architectures, the i3 overall is better.
See here for toms hardware cpu recommendation : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-o...
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/677?vs=102

The x4 965 be is a decent quad core, but just an option, if you get it ncix, the total cost is bellow the x4 965 with motherboard, ram and psu.

Any game at mid/high settings, whatever the 7850 2GB permits, the i3 doesn't bottleneck the 7850.

That gfx card is a good option indeed, since the powercolor is out of stock in newegg, i'd get that one in ncix, it offers the two games as in newegg.

Ok give me a rundown of probable fps examples of popular games?
because certain games recommend a quad core would this be affected at all by the inclusion of only a dual core?

No, you'll not experience frame drops, the 7850 will perform at the maximum capability.
If it was a high end card, then yes, it will be better an i5 or a better amd cpu(not the x4 965 be).

February 4, 2013 6:55:54 PM

Don't be scared of the i3 because its a dual core. I switched from a 965be to an i3 and gained noticeable performance in gaming. I have a 7870 and there is absolutely no bottleneck at all.

I read that there is really no difference in the 2 gb and 1 gb version. its just a bit more money for an extra gig of vram which most games wont even use. OK the main game i play is mount and blade warband can someone give me a setup for like 450 dollars that can run a couple games on high... and maybe newer games like BF3 on low?

Minimum, for it i suggest this : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BxW7

or this for 450 : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BxZu

The custom parts are ncix, pcpartpicker is still bugged, it's a pain in the ass.

February 5, 2013 12:51:44 AM

eh honestly the rig i recommanded , and djs rig with the i5 would be alot more appropriate the 7700 will get pwned in bf3 with 64 players. the frostbyte engin is a very powerful graphic engin.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7770-7750...

cant even hit 60fps prob. ur choice but u might get slowdowns that are annoying.

ok. The cpu would be fine in bf3 multiplayer even if it was a phenom x4 965 BE lol. the gpu is what will really be a pain. and i can upgrade further down the road. id rather go with the cheapest best solution for playing modern games on at least med

This isn't really true. The CPU is VERY stressed in multiplayer. More so than basically any other game ever. There WILL be a NOTICEABLE difference between an i3 and an i5. Battlefield 3 is coded for 4 cores unlike most games. The i5 will blow away the i3 or phenom II x4 965.

For 500$ you won't get much better than an i3, the thing is the i3 doesn't bottleneck the 7770 or 7850 even on BF3 multiplayer, you need a better card for it at certain resolution as well.
So at mid settings 720p an i3 is more than suffice, the i3 will bottleneck the mid/high end card in BF3 mp, but not a 7770 or 7850.
See here for cpu bf3 benchmark mp : http://www.pcgameshardware.de/Battlefield-3-PC-221396/S...
That was with a 680 GTX card.
For 500 get the i3+7850 1GB, i posted a link above with a one within 500$, this one : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BxW7

alright this should be my last question lol.
Just based on this build would there be any bottlenecking and would there be any game I would have trouble running? Also can you give me a small list of modern games i can run a semi good graphics at 60 fps or higher?
m

February 5, 2013 2:07:25 AM

any game at low settings. Anything above low settings at 1080p will be rough. Maybe some games at medium settings will get 30+ fps but things like skyrim will be most playable at med/low. The gtx650 is a very low budget gaming card.
