will I run bf3 bf4 arma 3 starcraft 2 dayz at 50ish fps max 1080p

any suggestions?
post #2 of 9
If you are running arma 3 and starcraft then i would normally reccomend intel.

I would save some money and swap the 7950 for a gtx 760. Other things i would chnage would be the motherboard and cooler.

Other then that it looks solid thumb.gif

There is no good optimal gaming build for those games. Multiplayer BF3 (& presumably 4) and StarCraft 2* both desire the highest per-core performance possible. Intel has better per-core performance. Bottom line. Yes most games don't really care what processor you're running, but basically all the games you mentioned are on the short list of games that really do care which CPU you get.

*And according to the poster above, Arma3/DayZ.

AMD Build. A bit above budget, but you get an SSD and if you choose a cheaper case you will be under budget.

Intel Build, with no SSD to keep it real close to budget, also, a cheaper case would bring it down more. Just threw on the Intel build as food for thought.

I run Starcraft 2 maxed out on my 7850 and OC'ed Phenom 965 BE... so I think that either build will run SC2 fine, as well as, any other game you want to run.

I would agree with the others, for those particular games get Intel. It's not even close, we're talking ~30fps vs ~50fps.

BF3 - stick to AMD card.

edit: http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=AT-79503GB

sell the games if you don't want them. my 7950 STOCK paired with an i7 at 4.5 played BF3 MP 64 at 1080 ULTRA with 4MSAA maintained 60 fps minimum. at those settings my vram usage exceeded 2GB according to Afterburner. BF4 might require more.

at 1100/1575 (easy) it will match a 7970 GHz edition.
