I've gotten bored looking around and researching, finally decided to go ahead and create my ideal build, while explaining it to everyone http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1vzvI *I chose the A10 because it performs as well as some i5's, while a little cheaper, but it also has those amazing graphics with it, so I would crossfire the A10 graphics (HD 8670D) with an HD 7770. Should be able to get to 50-60 fps on BF3 on high settings, including some anti-aliasing. If not, I could still easily over clock the A10 and HD 7770. *I wouldnt need to worry too much when overclocking, the A10 will have water cooling then the case comes with 1 120mm fan, which I don't feel comfortable with only 1 so I'll buy 3 extra, maybe 4, I just want to overclock a bit more. *8GB of Corsair Vengeance because it's a cheap RAM for 1866 MHz *The motherboard just because it was the cheapest that's ATX, supports FM2, and has crossfire capability. *I wouldn't need much more than a 500 GB drive, I think 1 TB is overrated, I'm perfectly fine with the 750 GB I have now and have 400 GB to spare on it, may just scrap that out of my laptop for the build. *The power supply chosen is just a cheap 500w xP (probably will get a 600w for stability in overclocking) *That optical drive is just cheap and I don't have a heart for bluray, unless it's BrRips xD *I don't care what people say about W8, the interface isn't hard to figure out (people need to learn how to use the search). And it actually seems to be a bit faster than W7. *The MS Sidewinder is a LED backlit gaming keyboard. Backlit keyboards are so much more convenient in dark rooms *Unneeded items I already have are a mouse, wireless adapter, and monitor (using my personal 22" 1080p tv as a monitor, supports HDMI) And wallah! A $650 gaming dekstop that can run nearly any game on ultra!
