Hey all,

Been reading along for a while and checking specs but would like some advice on a build. Im building a budget PC that ill be able to play BF3 on Ultra. I mainly game, youtube, and program. nothing major.

Here are the specs i got so far:

CPU: AMD FX-6300 Black ED
MB: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AMD3+
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 660 2GB (OC)
PSU: Cool Master Extreme Plus 500w
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) Kingston HyperX
Drive: Lite On 24x DVD
Case: Rosewell Challenger
Monitor: Asus VS247H-P 24-Inch
Keyboard/Mouse: Logitech MK520 combo
Speaker: Cyber Acoustics Set


So Far the Total is $803 AR
HD: I have a SSD and 500GB already
OS: I have Windows 8


Anything I'm Missing?

Than a head of time!

I don't see any problem with this configuration. Maybe you want an alternative CPU cooler, which is more quiet than stock. But I can't say which one, since there are many price classes.

I know this thread is a little old but if you want to max out Battlefield 3 you'll be wanting to upgrade the GPU a little. The rest of it is fine but a GTX 660 will not be able to do it. A GTX 660 only gets about 40 fps on Ultra in Battlefield 3. Even a GTX 660 Ti model only gets 45 fps. You'd want a 670/680 at the least, if you're wanting to maintain 60 fps, though at this point in time you might as well get a GTX 770. They're a little faster than the old 680's, about 7-8% faster, and they cost less. A GTX 660 is not going to cut it at all in Battlefield 4 if you want reasonably high settings.
