Previously when I play Deus Ex (settings med-high) i would get frame rate drops in large open areas. After i got the i5 2500K, i was shocked because suddenly the game was just butter smooth even after i maxed out the video settings. I use AMD HD 5850. If you plan on getting Battlefield 3, i highly recommend you get a quad smile.gif

well, im getting this computer for free. it should last me for a year and when i can get enough money i will get a new mobo and ivy bridge.

Sounds like a good plan. Tbh, now isn't the best time to upgrade since Ivy Bridge and AMD HD 7xxx (Southern Islands) are going to be big early next year. Not to mention AMD Bulldozer was kinda disappointing. I'm sure you won't regret anything when you upgrade next year smile.gif

Which GPU are you getting? Is this a regular GTX 560 or 560 Ti? I reckon it'll hold up till next year. I can say having an SSD will REALLY cut down loading times on everything tongue.gif
