Hello as you can tell I am looking for a gaming pc for around £500-700,
The main game I am playing right now is Battlefield 3 but do not care to play on ultra at 60+fps etc.. just want to have better then low-mid settings with 20fps which is awful.

I have been looking at:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor (£177.80
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G45 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£71.72
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£39.19
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£47.98
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card (£185.99
Case: NZXT Source 210 Elite (White) ATX Mid Tower Case (£33.58
Power Supply: OCZ 550W ATX12V Power Supply (£63.98
Total: £620.24
(Prices include shipping and discounts when available.)

I dont only play BF3 or FPS games but currently BF3 is the most demanding game I play...yes i would like to stay under £700. I think the 3570k would be more beneficial though... im obviously wanting something that will be able to maintain itself for the next year or two atleast and can do small upgrades along the way but as I said Battlefield 3 is not the only game I play... have been playing The GTA series too and am looking to get the new GTA on pc. so its not just FPS games..


Thanks for Help

It all works but I would wait until August 16th to see the benchmarks on the GTX 660 ti 2GB before I purchased.

Ok...how much is that card going to cost though....
also I dont mind waiting a few months if the prices of everything could drop abit and I ended up getting a better overall deal .

I'm going to guess around or just above 200 quid. Seeing how over clocking with these IB cpu's isn't much of a gain in regards to gaming you could change up to a B75 board and 3450 or 3470 cpu to make up the cost.

Looked at the B75 board and it costs the same as the one im getting now.. the CPU between the ones you said and the one i want is like £30.. can always dish that extra £30 for abit more future proof
