  1. what you budget? and are you open to buying from other websites
  2. Id like to keep it under 750(i can spend more just would prefer not ) . As long as the websites are reliable then yes.
  3. ight give me like 15 min and ill see what i can do.
  4. no its not.

    forget the 8150 cpu, go for the 6300.

    also you'll need a gpu, this one uses onboard (terrible).

    you dont need 16gig of ram, 8 will be fine.

    the power supply isnt to hot.

    after these changes (and adding a 660ti, wich they charge a whopping $345!!! for) it gets close to a grand. not worth it.
  5. Well assuming you dont need keyboard/mouse/monitor i cam up with this:

    Case : AZZA Solaris Gaming Case-Black
    Processor : Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Processor (4x 3.40GHz/6MB L3 Cache)Processor Cooling : Certified CPU Fan and Heatsink-
    Memory : 8 GB [4 GB X2] DDR3-1600 Memory Module-Corsair or Major Brand
    Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti - 2GB-
    Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z77-HD3
    Power Supply : 500 Watt
    Primary Hard Drive : 1 TB HARD DRIVE -- 32M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s
    Optical Drive : 24X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive-

    you can re configure it here but yea... 750$ isnt much of a budget if you are not gonna build it yourself.... this will BF3 at mid
  6. how much cheaper would it be if i build it myself? is it better to go with amd or intel by the way.
  7. i am an intel guy so intel, and it'll be a little cheaper to build yourself. check the site pcpartpicker.com also if you can wait till balck friday it be stuipid cheap to build
  8. isn't black friday like 9 months away? if you want to wait that long, the new haswell chips from intel will be out and prices will have been cut at least 2 times by then, making it significantly cheaper.
