Hello I'm planing on building a new gaming PC that would be able to run new games such as Battlefield 3 or Planetside 2. Im wondering if my build below can run these games and other intense games and if it can be good for video capturing/editing and maybe some everyday use for work. Please leave any comments or suggestions of what I can change or if it would be good.
Here's two for you. One if you want to OC, and one if you don't. You'll notice very little changes, but most notably the CPU, MOBO, and RAM (samsung OCs better). You could always get a nicer case in either build. I went with the Fractal Design R4, being that it's a very quiet case, but it's $60 more. There's a lot of quality in both of these builds. The only skimp was on the optical drive, but realistically you won't use it much. If there's a Microcenter near you, you'll save an additional $50 on the OC version until 2/10/13 by buying the MOBO/CPU there (pick up the evo 212 and samsung dimm while you're there too, if you have one).
I would recommend a AMD fx 8350 for that. First of all, games like Battlefield 3 will utilize more cores so the the 8350 will give you better performance. Also streaming + gaming on battlefield 3 the AMD fx 8350 will demolish the intel 3570k.
