Hey from Australia. First completely home built rig.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys and girls. Just built myself a gaming rig after playing xbox for the last few years. Battlefield 3 has been my favourite game since it came out. When I was younger I played lots of FPS shooters on PC and remembreed how much better it was! So finally bit the bullet to loose the controller and get back to keyboard and mouse smile.gif Really enjoying it so far smile.gif

Here's my system:

i5 3670K W Corsair H70 cooler ovrclocked to 4.4GHz 50c at load.
Z77 extreme 4 mobo with gskill 16GB RAM
Corsair 650w PSU
Gainward gtx 670 PHANTOM 2GB

Plays BF3 very nicely.

Thanks peeps. Really enjoying it so far. Any opinion on great DX11 FPS with nice graphics? I play battlefield, great game, but not awe inspiring graphically.
