Jaydee's new gaming rig

Post by UP^Jaydeeke on 2nd September 2012, 09:05

My old computer really is getting old, it's just barely running BF3 at the lowest settings. I build it myself back in december 2007 if I'm correct. I spent around 1700 euros (around 1350 quid for you brits) on it so that sure helped me get this far with it.

But now it's really time for me to say goodbye to it and head for something new.

This is what I ordered:

Case: CORSAIR 600T WHITE GRAPHITE SERIES

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 612S

MB: Asus P8Z77-V PRO,socket 1155

PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 850WATT

RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3,1600-16GB KIT

GFX: ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5 2GB GDDR5

SSD: Samsung 830 series 128GB Basic KIT

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB - 3.5inch

DVDR: SAMSUNG DVD±RW SATA ZWART 22X WRITER SH-222BB

Monitor: Samsung S24B350H

Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K90

I'm pretty sure by Wednesday I'll have everything since I ordered it online at different stores here in Belgium so come the end of the week I'll be playing BF3 on this mean, lean fragging machine!! Smile

Good specs!!!
I7 won"t give you any more performance on bf3 then I5

it"s a 80% graphic card game.

Nice specs, I move this to hardware section, mate!
And agreed with Rony, BF3 do takes a lot of CPU as well (Karkand maps) but I7 does not give you advantage, its MHz what matters and good graphics card. GPU might need boost in future Smile

I know Jaska, but I couldn't afford 2000 euros on my computer, it's already at 1700 now which is more than enough!

I'm not a pro-gamer anyway and since my girlfriend and me are officially living together since May, alot of stuff had to be bought for the flat already.

The GTX670 is 10% less performance for a 20% pricedrop over the GTX680 so that's alot of bang for your buck. In the future I'll just get another one or two and run them in 2way or 3way SLI ^^.

Hey, this is me posting my first reply from my new machine!!

It went superwell to install everything, I only had one problem while booting: 'CPU Fan Error'. Although my fan was running but that was a known problem with the Hyper series of Coolermaster so I changed some BIOS settings and all was good.
Now I am downloading and installing stuff so I can get back to work and gaming!!

See you later guys!

Nice specs!
You could easily add another 670 in the future.
I'm still running 2 GTX 480 (OCed) and it's holding fine @ Ultra. the 670 should do the same.
