New Build - Parts Suggestions Needed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Its been over 4 years since i built this PC and i think its time for a new one. From my current rig i will have my GFX card, SSD and Samsung F3 available, therefore i require the following;

CPU
MOBO
RAM
Case

Just looking for something that will run BF3 easily and last me for another 4 years. Not looking to spend crazy money, just best 'bang for buck'. Finally I'm from the UK so can't take advantage of any deals on new egg etc.

Thanks

then you'll definitely want a 2500k. if you do anything besides gaming, like content editing/creation you'd be better off with a 2600k.

CPU: 2500k
MB: which one specifically, uhhh...one of these perhaps?(best of Z68 club!) http://www.futurelooks.com/futureloo...te-asrock-msi/
Memory: Depends on how many gigs you want..but for 8gb maybe this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231311
Case: Again..many options..this is pretty cheap http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129042

So far, like the look of the 2500k with the Asus P8Z68-V Pro, found that 8gb G-Skill ram for 39.54 so going to go for that. Now Just need a case, which I'm gonna have a look around for now, but like the look of the 300.
