Hi guys, just some advice on this system. Is it any good and would it handle the likes of arma 2 and crysis 3 (when released) on full settings

Cheers Paul

Cheers for the link buddy. If my money can stretch I've heard that the gfx680 graphics card is a goo one. What's your take on it. And I'll look into the i5.

Also what about this, it gives me bit extra cash to buy the gtx680 if comparable


can't get the link to work but I wouldn't buy from a play marketplace seller anyway, they can't compete on price with places like Scan, CCL, etc. and they uses cheapo PSU, case, ram etc to bring the price down. You would end up having to buy a new PSU to use a decent graphics card with that PC. If that first build is from pcspecialist.co.uk then they could do a better deal than that. Also getting a non overclocked i5 would bring prices down a lot for very little change in performance
