I'm planning to build a new system for games like Arma 3 and Battlefield on med to high settings with decent fps.mI think i'll need an i5 with 8gb RAM but I'm not to sure.
I would prefare an Intel Cpu and Nvidia Gpu with a 1tb hdd, bad experiences with AMD.
I have windows and my monitor so I only need the base system
Any reccomendations?

The XFX6870 listed above runs toe to toe with a GTX560 in almost every situation.

Would you like to buy my GPU? It's an Asus Direct CUII 560ti 448 core. I have been using it for BF3 but had enough cash floating about to get a GTX 670.

The 560ti 448 could run all settings in BF3 without anti-aliasing enabled, @1080p and could get around 50-60FPS, and with x2 MSAA activated I only had to reduce a couple of settings to high and still achieve a solid frame rate.

It is more powerful than a standard 560ti and when overclocked to around 880mhz, is in GTX 570 territory. These cars are getting rarer as they are limited production models, and are around 250 new.

I am British but live in Germany, if you was interested I'd ship to the UK.

How much would you be asking for it.
