New mATX PC build - Thoughts, or opinins?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay, I'd really like to get of my current PC (See specs below) because BF3 just Is NOT acceptable on this PC. So, Now I've got to make some money to save up for this PC.

I'll be playing BF3 @ 1366x768 (And NO, I won't get a new monitor. I see no point in having 1080P when I don't need it.), and I'd like to run it at either High or Ultra textures ( Ultra preferred, 45FPS +).

So, without further a due, here are the specs, and prices:

Intel Core i3-2100 LGA 1155 CPU - 125$

Asus P8H67-M EVO Motherboard (mATX, 2x PCI-E x16, etc) - 125$

NZXT Crafted Series Vulcan mATX Gaming case - 70$ (I owned this case for a couple of months, and I loved it.)

Corsair Hydro H70 Liquid CPU Cooler - 80$ (I owned the H50, and carried it throughout three builds, so I expect the same for this).

OCZ ModXStream 500W PSU - 65$ (36A x 12V = 432W's on 12V Rails)

HIS Radeon HD 6850 1GB (I will be bitcoin mining, so MHash/s does mean something to me.) - Is there a 2GB Version of this by chance?

Patriot Torqx 2 64GB SATA II SSD - 95$ (70$ w/ Rebate.)

(2x2GB) G-skill Ripjaws DDR3 1333 CAS 8 @ 1.5V's - 25$ (I've owned three sets of G-skill Ripjaws RAM in the past 9 months, and I love them).

MSI Geforce GT430 1GB OC - Already owned, will be using to help w/ Bitcoin mining/PhysX & other gaming related tasks.



Grand Total: 725 USD.

Already owned Items: GT430 1GB.


So, I'll be running a sub 750 $ Gaming PC & Bitcoin comp. PC. If there is a 6870 2GB, or a 6850 2GB that is around 150-170$? 2GB's of VRAM seems to be needed to run Ultra graphics in BF3 (But I think that's @ 1080P, not 720i.)

Let me know if 1GB of VRAM is enough for Ultra. Also, comment on the build.

READ***

Also, I don't want a Full-ATX Case, or a Mid-tower, because the space I have is just not going to fit with it. I live in a small room, so Space really does mean something.

Newegg only lists the Sapphire, I think:
