Tags: New Build Gaming Performance Systems Last response: February 10, 2013 3:38 AM in Systems Share mkeonpc February 10, 2013 12:17:01 AM I am planning on building my first gaming rig in a couple months and i have a budget of about $700 including the os. I am looking to get the best possible performance for the money on games like Battlefield 3 and arma 2. My first build i went with a lower CPU and a better GPU: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Csv8 In my second build i have most of the same parts as in the first but i went with an intel i5 CPU and a lower GPU and puhed my budget a bit: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Cpvm I was just wondering if i would be fine on all the new games FPS wise on high/ultra settings with a 1600x900 res (900p i believe).
