Hello im trying to make a build right now but i was wondering if anyone could make me a build with a 7850 that is $530 or less? I dont need an os or a monitor. just the tower and the parts for that. i want to be able to run Battlefield 3 on high. that way i know i can run a lot of other games. If you cannot make a computer with a 7850 for $530 can you please make another one that will be able to run games really well and has everything come with it that i will need for install?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DAv2 This build is only going to cost me a clean 500. What do you guys think and would there be any compatibility problems? or any problems in general? and what games could i possibly play?

Check out these benchmarks.

The $500 g860 rig has a GTX 560 so you will get a bit better performance with 7850. Then, you could upgrade to an i5. I like going with AMD for budget builds, but it is not worth it in order to get the 7850 (which has a big performance boost over the 7770).

Hi, no incompatibilities or any problems with the parts listed above, the case doesn't have a front panel USB 3.0 ports but 2.0, which won't mean anything to you, the motherboard has usb ports 3.0 ports in the back.
The 7850 offers two games, so grab it :)

Hi, change the psu for antec or xfx, rosewill stallion is not a good psu, green line or other are good ones, but stay away from stallion.
That asus 7850 isn't at that price, get one with 2GB ram.
It seems you can get the cpu and psu cheaper in ncix us, so you better get those there :

You might change the hdd for the wd caviar blue for just 2$ more : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74462&vpn=WD10EZEX&man...

That will shave some :)

Hi, it will come less than 530$, if the i3 is 10$ cheaper in ncix us and the psu less 9$, the hdd for more 2$, still is less than 530$.

is there anything we could do to the i3 build to drop price just a little?
I would really like that build but its like 10 to 20 dollars over because i still might need an adapter or other cables.

February 15, 2013 12:35:41 AM

Hi, ncix us offers the games in question, and the card is cheaper there, you'll have free shipping on the items, since the total parts will be more than 100$.
From the site it says : "Usually ships in 1-2 business days."

Hi, the motherboard has two sata cables, the psu has all the cables needed, you don't need additional cords.

maxing out games with a 7850 is a lie at anything above 1600x900. ultra most likely

Hi, did you see what he said about the resolution ? :pfff:

He probably meant 1280x1024, or something like that, so it will maxout at those resolutions.

I think i migt regret going with the I3. I checked the sys req of Arma 2 and it says for recommended to have a I5 or a phenom X4. The phenom would have been better for gaming :'(

At that resolution, you'll be able to play it in high settings.

I just watched a bench mark with res at 1920 by 1080 or something and it had same parts i did. But he ran it on ultra with msaa X4 at min of 26 and average of 46 or something? will the lower res bog me down?
