In Panama, but I can order parts from Newegg or such sites.

What do you think of this rig for $888

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 a 3.4Ghz (Sandy Bridge) - Cuatro Núcleos, Socket LGA1155, 4 x 256KB L2 & 8MB L3 Cache, TurboBoost 3.8Ghz

RAM: 8GB DDR3 PC3-10600 1333Mhz (2x 4GB Doble Canal)
HDD: 1TB (1000GB) SATA 32MB Buffer Cache
GPU:Nvidia Geforce GTX550 Ti, 1GB GDDR5 192bit, Mini-HDMI & 2x DVI, HDTV, HDCP, DX11, SLI, PCI-Express x16 2.0
Tarjeta de Red: 10/100Mbps Ethernet
Soundcard: 6 canales Intel High Definition Audio integrado
Disc:10X Burner Blu-ray, 10x BD-R, 8x BD-R DL, 2x BD-RE, 16x DVD+/-R, 8x DVD+/-R DL

It is too expensive for the parts or its a good price?


CPU
- Are you overclocking? Get an i5-2500k and an Asrock motherboard (P67, Z68 or Z77).
- No? Get an i5-3550 plus a cheap H61 motherboard.

RAM is good.

HDD is preferential. 500GB minimum for gaming.

GPU... 550ti will definitely be fine for medium BF3. You can do better though. GTX 560 or HD 6870 are better buys and not much more expensive than 550ti.

Soundcard just go with the built-in one on the motherboard. Only get a dedicated sound card if you're into music production.

Power supply get 500w, like Seasonic or Corsair.

CPU: Go with a 2500k.
RAM: Make sure this is high quality brand RAM (G-Skill, Corsair, etc...)
GPU: For $888, DEFINITELY get something better than a 550 Ti. Get a GTX 560 Ti or GTX 570

Sometimes in life you get lucky, and other times you get screwed.
Unfortunately for me, I have been getting neither.

i7 is overkill. You could do with an i5, or if you are trying to save money get i3-2120 cpu.
4-8 ram is good
HDD: I would recommend bumping down to a 500gig HDD that can do 7200rpms. Still would be cheaper than that im sure.
GPU: Well I'm not too familiar with nvidias GPUs I have heard good things about these, but I thought nvidia cards were AMD?
Also you have no PSU to go with that, nor a case for that matter. Need at least a 500-550W PSU, and a Mid ATX should be sufficient.


If you don't know the difference between Nvidia and AMD, I wouldn't trust you with any suggestions period.


Difference? Read again, I thought nvidia gpu's worked specifically with AMD processors not intel. You shouldn't have to 'trust' me with suggestions when what I put out is common sense for anyone with the tiniest bit of PC knowledge.

This is the sentence of a clueless individual. How in the hell would you think that nvidia was owned by amd instead of amd being owned by amd? That, is common sense. Not whatever gobbledegook you're going to try to backtrack to.

I don't know where in the seven hells you picked up that idea, but no. Your CPU doesn't care what your video card is. If it fits in the PCI Express x16 slot, it will work.
