First Build for gaming, gaming and more gaming

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hi!!

Like many others, I look very much forward to BF3. But I'm not really a PC player so I would like to get some help. So I contacted my friend who has a little experience on this. But I would like to hear your opinion on this setup that he gave me. I do need a screen aswell, so Id like to get some tips on that aswell.
My Budget is 3600USD (Thank you America )

Thanks
Best Regards Mathias.F

That setup would kick BF3's ass and demand BF4 Frostbyte 3.0 to come out.

Just sayin'. It's overkill. But if you have $3600 to spend, why not?

links broken.

Also Corsair 800d and 700d is made for water really so unless you plan on water cooling don't get it.

LGA 1155 only supports dual channel ram.
I wouldn't waste that much money if you just plan on playing games.

a decent $1000-$1500 build would be fine.

Thx, Unfortunaly none of those links work :/ It says "Bad Request"
3600USD may sound much but the fact is, America is so much cheaper then Scandinavia.

Oh yeh, I dont mind a cheaper computer It was just my friend who gave a quick setup which would play anything at highest settings which is what I want

Just saying that 3600 is a waste you can get a very powerful machine with sandy bridge intel i5 2500k and DDR3 1600 MHZ and GTX 580 or 6970 no problem... even SLI and SSD for $1500 ish.

This setup would play on highest as well

Motherboard + Cpu = $340 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.660726

Memory + Psu = $175 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.681151

Quickest 580 available = $519
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125379

CPU Cooler = $66 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118074

SSD os drive = $99 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227725

HDD storage drive = $60 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185

Case = $120
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146067

Total $1380

Overall a very powerfull pc that will max any game thrown at it. You could go and blow $3600 and only gain a few extra fps which is not noticeable to the eye.
