Hi community! I am looking for a good gaming system to play higher end games like bf3 and dayz(arma2). I had two builds that seem pretty solid for the price but i can't decide which one will preform better. Also if you have an recommendations I will greatly appreciate them to make my system even better.

Build 1: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Bwo2

Build 2: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BwpU with a amd fx 6300 CPU for $140 making final price $680

Build 3: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BePk

Build one goes out of my budget by a bit but i was just wondering if it is worth it. If not which one is a better gaming rig?

I like this a lot but does it make a difference with the brand of the GPU. I'm suprised powercolor is substantial cheaper for the 2gb also i have been told the i3 3220 can either outdo or match all amd CPU's and use less power.

Both 1st and 2nd build should serve you well with 1 modification though, replace the 560 with 7850 in 2nd build.

Also, see if you can fit a 7870XT (Tahiti LE) in your budget in the 2nd build.

Ty for clearifying that for me. Is the 7870 that much better for the price than the 7850?

A normal 7870 or a GHz version? No. But the XT model isn't so much a 7870 as it is a slightly lesser 7950, which DOES make a huge difference.
