That's true, but I don't think we should try to fill his budget if there aren't tangible gains to be had by doing so. It's always good to save some money.

Hian, if you're going to limit yourself to $150-220 GPU (not sure why you would), just get an i3 2100 with stock cooling. It will serve you just fine for now.

Battlefield 3 is a very taxing game, though. Like evilDSM suggested, an HD6950 2GB will give you a smooth experience at 1080p, or a GTX560 Ti if you're willing to leave AA off to save a little money.

I probably go with i3 then , since i not really care much for the highest performance, i just play those game in average setting , so i update my build here ,
I3 2100
Asus p8h67m
Graphic ~550ti , 560, 5870(i taking this into consider now)
Power supply 650watt enough right ?
Ram will be 4gb x2 1333mhz

So , how about power supply ? It can affect life span of other component right? Corsair /cooler master psu nice ? Suggest me some model they got , there is alot model make me dunno how to pick among those psu

Okay, here is a revised build for $496.63 all you are missing is the case, and HD.

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127518

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139028

You mean 6870, not 5870. The 5870 is an older generation card.

A quality 500W PSU will be enough for i3 2100 + any of the cards you mentioned. 650W is way overkill.

As for brands, Seasonic makes the most efficient and reliable power supplies, but they're a bit expensive. The Corsair TX/HX/AX series are all very good as well. The CX series is just average. Antec, Cooler Master, and OCZ all make respectable units as well. Just make sure you get an 80PLUS Certified unit.

Suggestions:

This one has partially modular cables, so cable management will be easier/cleaner.

Expensive, but arguably the best 650W PSU on the market. This will allow you to SLI/CFX later on. 100% modular cables too.

That's a solid plan. In that case, you should invest in a higher quality PSU since you'll presumably get a more power-hungry GPU next year.

I would also recommend this case:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112239

Great stock airflow, quiet, looks slick, about the same price as the HAF922 but has much better cable management.

[QUOTE=aznofazns;15565944]You mean 6870, not 5870. The 5870 is an older generation card.

A quality 500W PSU will be enough for i3 2100 + any of the cards you mentioned. 650W is way overkill.

As for brands, Seasonic makes the most efficient and reliable power supplies, but they're a bit expensive. The Corsair TX/HX/AX series are all very good as well. The CX series is just average. Antec, Cooler Master, and OCZ all make respectable units as well. Just make sure you get an 80PLUS Certified unit.

This one has partially modular cables, so cable management will be easier/cleaner.

Expensive, but arguably the best 650W PSU on the market. This will allow you to SLI/CFX later on. 100% modular cables too.[/QUOTEu

Thx alot , i probably go with 650watt , so that in future upgrade dont need purchase another psu, for now 650watt just fine with my build right? A overkill high watt psu wont damage the system right?
