$3,000 ~ $5,000 rig help please. - Page 2

It's intimidating, yes, but you can get much more "bang for your buck" so to speak. I mean, look at this.

Then you just add this.

You're still well under your even 3000 budget and if you so desire, add another 580 for sli for another 440 and you're still only at just about 2k. You really shouldn't need to upgrade an sli 580 setup for quite some time so I think 3k is just really overkill unless you want to go sli of these

Agreed, you can go with an mATX build for around 1500 and still get amazing fps on anything. Save the money for a new car or house payments. I am regretting building my $3200 sig rig (I still love it to death) after pricing out my new (and almost more powerful) mATX build for $1300. Note my sig rig is less than a year old. Only reason I could see to spend the extra money is if you are an extreme overclocker or do some demanding professional tasks such as video editing.

"Pre-made junk" does not last! If you build it yourself, by parts you ONLY need right now to max out games and leave the ability to upgrade when your current parts are not enough. That's what a lot of PC gamers do in order to make their parts last long. If you build it well, you're looking at maybe 4 years until you have to upgrade. You just have to choose the right parts and at OCN, we can help.

i built my first computer for bf3 and let me tell you, the hardest part is deciding what parts your going to use. there are plenty of guides out there that explain how to put a new pc together. and there is a helpful community here that would love to help you pick your parts are guide you into the installation.

don't pay that premium on ibuyoverpriced or cyberpower, do it yourself and know you have a one of a kind computer. im glad i did

Make the same rig as mine, instead of 2 460s get a single 580 and enjoy gaming at 1080p, if you need to upgrade later, then just get another 580. Minus the watercooling you save a lot of money, however, can give you chance to run everything much much cooler including those gpu's, so my advice get a rasa RX360 kit.

That shoudl be more than enough for BF3

I see that what most people recommend is building it myself, or get a friends help or of course small or large business. I don't have anyone near me to help me build the Pc, thats why i was looking at cyberpower and other places like that.

If you really need examples I could easily go on their site now and provide you with a few , but charging someone to install memory for instance when it clearly costs much less than what the actually memory costs would be ripping them off yes.

When you post in a thread it's to help the OP not try to sound smart in your meaningless post.

Ask away any questions you have. This forum has multiple sections on hardware and hundreds of people are willing to help answer those questions. We can teach you or link you to guides on how to build your PC, is quite easy!

Not trying to "sound smart" just trying to point out that paying extra for someone to do the work for you isn't getting ripped off. Some people don't feel comfortable putting together the parts for a PC, and that's fine. I have messed with cyberpowerpc before putting builds together, and they don't charge as much of a premium as you seem to be stressing they are.

My point is, that if he doesn't have a friend who wants to do it for him, or knows of a local shop that can do it, there really is nothing wrong with paying cyberpower extra to put it together for him so that they have all the liability if they mess up.

I just feel like I'm not giving enough information to get what i really need help with. I guess you can say I'm very FPS hungry, like many others are, but at the same time i don't want to give up on a beautiful looking graphics.

I know now that I'm going i7-2600k and at least a single GTX 580. Should i Overclock at all?

I also do'nt know anything about computers other then the CPU's and Graphics cards so i could also use a little help in cooling and mother boards if thats not too much to ask for.
