Need a new Gaming Computer?

Need a new Gaming Computer? Topic: Haf x case ssd
June 17, 2019 / By Curt
Question: I am looking to get a new computer to play Battlefield 3 on its max settings when it comes out. Out of speculation, do you think this rig would be able to do it? If not, what should I improve on? Price isn't a large issue. Motherboard ASUS Sabertooth P67 B3 TUF Edition CPU Intel Core i7-2600Kv RAM http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=154017&CatId=4534 Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Sound Card Creative Labs SoundBlaster X-FI Titanium Hard Drive Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB Optical Drive LG 12x Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Burner/Player Case Cooler Master HAF 932 Full Tower Black Case Monitor Samsung P2770HD 27" LCD Monitor Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64BIT What needs upgrading?

Nothing really needs upgrading, possibly the cooling system since that is a lot of high end equipment. Don't skimp on the fans and copper. Also, you may want to consider an SSD or RAIDing some hdd's since that will be the bottleneck in the system, as the i7 and 580 are quite powerful. Stick with 6gb of ram or more and maybe even turn off your page file so it isn't referencing the slower HDD for data.

Most games are still optimized for dual cores, but having other processes running, and recording (recording uses alot of cpu). Id recommend a 2.8ghz+ quad core processor. You really only need 4GB of ram, even for gaming and multitasking, but if you want to future proof more, 8GB is good. More then 8GB is plain stupidity. Now as for graphics, to play cod MW3 on highest settings @ 1920x1080 will require a higher end graphics card like a gtx560 or 6850 or better. So id suggest getting a 6850 or higher graphics card. EDIT: Well it depends on what you need. If you need operating system, monitor, keyboard/mouse, speakers/headphones, $500 isnt going to get you very far. For a decent gaming computer you need $500-600 for just the computer tower itself, none of the above things. Its also usually better to build your own computer. Also if you do that, you can reuse an old HDD or dvd drive and save a few bucks aswell. Id suggest: core i5-2300/2400 some cheap z68 motherboard 4gb of ddr3 ram 500GB-1Tb 7200rpm HDD Any sata dvd burner, they are like $15-20 a cheaper $40-60 mid tower case (antec, coolermaster, nzxt, thermaltake, rosewill cases are good) a 430W corsair PSU an amd 6850 graphics card That should run somewhere around $500-600.

IF you want to fit more, look for a NZXT Phantom case, powered by fans, maximum 7, comes with 4, or try water cooling, everything else looks about right, although i would prefer radeon graphics

RAM from newegg.com is cheaper usually.... And check ratings for motherboard, ASUS is not always the best. Sometimes it's ASRock sometime Gigabyte.... and others... The rest is good, don't forget better CPu cooler, at least CM Hyper 212 which is enough for 4.4+GHz ratings on 2600K

i would suggest a different case due to the fact that if that's the case im thinking of there are LOTS or mesh and fans but not a single dust filter thus making it a giant vacuum and not exactly what u want

Excellent case, but you might also want to look at the CoolerMaster 690. Get the 275GTX (X1) or 285GTX (X1) and forget SLI. Lose the Seagates and get two 1Tb WD Caviar Black HDDs. You don't need 900W...it will be hot and noisy. Again, do not go SLI and get a nice PCP&C Silencer 750W. Lose the Crapola Labs sound card and get an HT Omega Striker. Then hook that up to a nice pair of Behringer MS-20 monitors...fine sound, low price ($99 delivered at B&H Photo). Get a Xigmatek 1283 HSF, or Zalman 9700. I like the build, but I would change a few things. The E8400 is a solid choice, but you can now get a Q9550 for $229 at NewEgg, so think about that option. EDIT FOR OP: OK, if you get the "retail" version of things, you get the cables; if you get the "OEM" version, you only get the item itself. Your motherboard should have all the cables you need. The hard drives will NOT come with cables, but your motherboard will probably have two or three of them included. With regard to Duo versus Quad...I'd go with the Q9550...some future-proofing and an incredible buy at $229! This is a 2.83GHz chip with 12Mb of L2 cache, which is awesome. This is just about $50 more than the E8400, but the difference in multitasking will amaze you.
