Budget First Build - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
Would it be smarter to get an i5 3570k with a gtx650/7770 level card, or get a gtx660/7870 level card and an i3 or phenom II x4 965 black? I'm thinking if the less performing gpu will atleast be able to somewhat perform on all games. Meaning I want to be able to play bf3, metro 2033,gw2, etc. atleast on medium preferably on high.

i5 + 7870 like what you have on your list right now would make a great system.

I have not even installed my GPU yet, and I can play older games just on the Intel HD, the i5 rocks! My GPU will be here tomorrow hopefully, and we shall see how she does with Far Cry 3 smile.gif I would spend the money on the GPU.

I still keep my Athlon 64 3500+ running, and it plays BF3 on medium with a GeForce 8800 still, after 7 years. Spend the money on a GPU.
