Hey Guys, First of all I'm sorry if this is in the wrong Category, This is my first topic I'm creating on this website, Now, My question is:
I want to build a new PC that's able to play some high-end games (Battlefield 3, Crysis 3), And I've got everything I need, Except the Graphics card, I'm willing to spend 300 Euro's (405 US Dollars, 257 Pounds)
I'll be playing at 1360x768, I want to be able to run Battlefield 3 on Ultra at a solid 60FPS
The PC Setup is:
Case: HAF 912 Plus
Processor: i7 3770k
Mobo: Asus P8H61
RAM: 8GB Non-Branded DDR3 RAM @ 1333Mhz
PSU: Corsair CX600M
Also, This will be my first real PC Build, I've had some experience with disassembling Computers. However I'll gladly take any tips anyone's got for me.
P.S: I know someone's going to say that I don't need an i7 for Gaming, but I've got one laying around, So I'll just use that
I managed to scavenge an i7 off an old PC I had in my home, Hence my Disassembling experience, anyway, I'm going to wait a bit longer before I make my decision, get some more people to reccomend me a card.
Well thats the card range you can get in that budget.
The 670 is the most powerful but might be a little out of price range, The 7950 will be in price range hopefully but needs to be aftermarket to be really good and the other 2 are ones you can definitely afford.
The cheapest 670 I'm able to find (I want Dual Fans, I'm scared to death It'll overheat) is 349,99 Wich is 49,99 out of Price Range, I'll postpone for a Month or so then, Unless you guys think / know that 1 Fan is enough
You're going to be playing a 1366x768? Are you planning a monitor upgrade any time soon? If you are, then a GTX670 or HD7950 would be decent choices. If not, then get a HD7850. On that resolution, you probably want AA, so I'd suggest AMD over nVidia because of Kepler's gimped memory bandwidth; high levels of AA hit them hard.
I've found a website that sells a Bundle, 2 HD7850's for 320 Euro's, Just 20 Euro's over my Budget, If I were to get that I'd have to get a Mobo with 2x PCI-Express 3.0 Slots though, Any thoughts on this?
My current plans would have me pay 67 Euro's for the Mobo, I'm willing to kick this up to 100 Euro's if my FPS would increase alot by getting 2 7850's.
If anyone thinks this is a good idea, reccomend me some Motherboards under 100 Euros (135 US Dollars, 85 Pounds), And tell me if It's difficult to install 2 GPU's instead of one
