First build! - Page 7

post #61 of 76
^Now for gaming, 8gb's is becoming a necessary. With BF3, Origin, a web browser, and rainmeter, I can run up to 6.5 out of my 8gb's used. It's not even that much more to get 8gb's so I would definitely recommend it.

Really?

BF3 must use a ton of ram then.

Also windows uses more ram when you give it more to work from.

And for most games you don't need to have a web browser.

8 GB certainly can't hurt, but I'm trying to get this inside his budget.

To launch BF3, you need Battle Log to be open which requires the browser. 8gb is the new standard, and although you could save a bit, I would highly recommend getting 8gb's. smile.gif

Up to you though.

If you want to go with 8 GB of ram go ahead, you're building in a few months anyway and there will be sales between now and then.

^ Good build.

I would do something similar, but would drop down to an i3, they are great gaming processors too, and won't be bottle necking any current single GPU. With that extra hundred, I would get more RAM, a and a better PSU.

My 2cents.gif.

Where are you finding a 7850 for less than $250?

And the 560 ti 448 core is better than the 7850.

here is a 7850 for 250$
Asus 7850 249.99$
HIS 7850 247.55$
and the GTX 560Ti 448 is better then the 7850 but its does work better efficiently it the Ti 448.
  1. its a newer technology
  2. its consumes much lesser power from the wall
  3. it has a Direct X 11.1 support
  4. and its a much better overclocker then the GTX 560 Ti 448

its really person to person i think the 7850 is a better choice you think the GTX 560 Ti 448 is a better choice redface.gif its upto Op to choose after all tongue.gif
