Hey guys i recently came across some play with money and wanna get back into pc gaming, i used to be a hardcore pc gamer back when bf2 and fear where the top games for benchmarks and a 1gb card was amazing. Im going to be playing battlefield 3 mainly, as well as newer games when they come out probably arma 3, and try some of the pc onlys i been hearing about, also will be used for video editing, rendering, modleing. Im torn between these two builds, im a nvidia kinda guy but open for any help or recomindations..thanks guys..
