Gaming Rig

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
I am helping a family member build a gaming machine but I need some advice on the components. They want a gaming pc that can play Battlefield 3 on Ultra settings across three monitors. They have a budget of $1500 + tax and they would need the purchases everything except for mouse, keyboard, hard drives. Is it possible to create a rig that he want for the price?

UPDATE: Well I spoke with my family member and he decided to just go with 2 monitors. One which would be used for games and another which would be used for other apps and websites.

No way if you're planning on buying and using 3 1080p monitors and running the game across them, maybe you could afford the screens and GPU's with 1500$....

What sort of budget would you need to build an entire system?

I understand. If he wanted to build a rig that would do what he wanted, It would be around $2000 to $2500?

Yeah 1,500 is just not going to cut it - especially if he wants each monitor to be 1080. You're going to need to throw down minimum 2,000 for all the parts you need and even then you might be scraping to save. The GPU's alone would run ~ 1,000.


And what is the deal with all these "I just want to play Battlefield on Ultra so help me build a computer" threads? I heard the game sucks...

Would it be better to just wait for ivy bridge version of the 2500k or just go with the 2500k?
