GTX 560 Ti

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I Just tried out building this PC using the website for simple gaming for GW2, TF2, and BF3, can anyone help me by:
  1. Trying to bring down the price.
  2. Just telling my the quality of parts I picked, and any upgrades I can make.
Here is the Link: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/8DqZ

Thanks to all help.

Really nothing wrong with it? I changed it a lil, can the 560 handle 2 monitors?

Might want to get more recent parts like Ivy Bridge CPU and mobo, as well as a GTX660 when released. Looks good though

What do you recommend for a MoBo?

Well, depending on how you're going to be using the monitors. A 560ti can play BF3 just fine (from experience). It will have no issues with GW2. You could probably go to an i5 Ivy and not spend any more cash, and I would get GSkill Sniper dual channel ram.

If you want to drop the price a bit you can drop down to a 650w power supply. If you get a quality 650 you can run SLI 560Ti's with ease.

Does the AMD memory work with intel cpus? I thought it was released by AMD for high compatibility with their cpus. I believe it would work, but my recommended memory would be the low voltage (1.25v) G.SKILL sniper 1600mhz anyway. Very good stuff biggrin.gif

G.SKILL memory ---> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231461

I use a 448 in my rig, and it is AMAZING (I have the EVGA classified, it overclocks like a dream) I get 45-60 fps in Arkham City with my 2500k at a little over 4 ghz, but I must say, that in a single 1600x900 display, the video memory is completely used up. I would recommend a card with a little more vram, like a 7850 (same pricepoint) to handle two monitors. Hope this helps thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

A decent 7850 ---> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102986

Something like this for a mobo and this for a CPU would be good for Ivy Bridge in the same price range. If you don't want to spend the extra $50 for the K cpu you can get a i5-2320 for around 200.

Will I be able to run two monitors with that graphics card?
