Rate My Budget Build Pc?

Postby Sorrell » Fri Aug 04, 2017 11:01 pm

Okay so im interested in building a cheap pc, i would want to know if these settings can handle battlefield 3 ultra 1920 resolution and connection through hdmi (full hd)

-Intel Core i5-2500K (PROCESSOR) which goes from 3.3ghz to 3.7 turbo

-Patriot G2 Series 8GB DDR3 (1600 Mhz) (RAM)

-GTX560 Ti overcloacked 1gb ---> will that handle bf3 ultra 1920res with 30 fps at least? im from mexico and gtx 570 is really expensive so i dont know if i should buy gtx 560 ti...

and thats dont worry about the other pc parts ill get em but i dont know about these...

Well thanks a lot hope you can help me as i said mostly will play bf3 all day... maybe newer games later but not that much will a gtx560 ti do the job? thanks again

The overclocked GTX 560 Ti should handle ultra settings in BF3 and maintain good fps, assuming you run with FXAA instead of MSAA.
Of course without AA you'll be fine.

Reviews indicate the GTX 560 Ti should be fine... About 40fps worst-case scenario: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5625/amd-r... http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2012/03... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/H...

For BF3 on ultra settings, get a 2GB card if possible. Yeah, 1-2 ago 1GB cards were fine for anything at 1080p, but nowadays they suffer on ultra settings in titles like BF3 and Metro 2033.

The new Radeon HD 7850 is better overall than the GTX 560 Ti and Radeon HD 6950, and it's a 2GB card, so I lean towards that over the GTX 560 Ti.

You can stretch your budget by replacing the Core i5 2500K with a Core i5 2400. There's almost no difference in games, either will handle BF3 just fine. Besides, it's your GPU that accounts for 70% of performance in games like that anyway.
If you aren't overclocking the 2500K performs identically to the 2500, and the 2400 isn't far off.
Dropping down slightly on the CPU side could free up the $30 needed to snag a higher-end GPU.


*** Update ***

The Techpowerup and Bit-Tech tests appear to using MSAA.
Anandtech's review shows both types, and with FXAA performance improves greatly.

I highly doubt a 560 will handle BF3 on ultra settings at playable frame rates. It might get close with all AA off, but I still don't think you'll maintain a high enough FPS for the game play to be enjoyable.

A 570 would probably do it with AA off.
