    Default Computer that will run BF at 60 FPS?

    I don't know if I posted this in right or wrong section but I want a computer that will run BF3 at 60 FPS, I don't care for the graphics but high would be best for me. My budget for this is $600 and I don't need an OS currently so there is no need to include that in the price. I need everything from tower to RAM.


    I'm thinking of getting this though, would it be okay?

    Removing, the OS it comes with (Again, I'll install another later) to cheapen the price around $700 is there anything I could remove/downgrade in this to cheapen the price and still get around the same results it presents?

    Thanks everyone! (who helped)

    Willing to build your own? You could do a LOT better for $850 if you did. For example: [URL="http://pcpartpicker.com/p/16Nz2"]this for $648.[/URL] The 7870XT would FAR outperform that 7790 on that pre-built. Plus the motherboard is much better as is the CPU. Best of all, AMD's next line of processors will work on that socket motherboard too so all youll have to do is a quick BIOS update and youll be able to drop one in when they come out next year and youll be set for that much longer.

    Well, the rumors are true. The PC gamer community is a lot more friendly then console. Well now, thanks for the reply and your right, that is much better and it is cheaper too. Thanks!

    Does look nice...I sometimes wish I went for one of these $50 rather than the 212.
    They both have great reviews for the price range.
