Been awhile since ive kept up with anything hardware related. Ive sold something of mine to fund a build for a friend, which is to be a surprise.
With that said, its a rather tight budget so im reaching out to you all for help.
Have a total budget of $300. The end goal is a rig that can handle BF3 as well as possible. The upside is, its only going to be at 1280x1024 resolution.
It appears there are a bunch of AMD combos right around the $140 price range that would fit in nicely.
My thoughts are the A6-3670K paired with a mobo that will hopefully overclock decently. Id prefer a regular ATX board but if it has to be mATX then I suppose Ill live.
CPU: $75 (A6-3670K)
Mobo: $65 (Help?)
Ram: $40 (4GB of perhaps this)
Psu: $40 (Maybe this guy)
GPU: $80 (Gtx 460 off ebay)
Thoughts? We have a case already.
Any and all input appreciated. Thankyou!
