Need help with a few different builds

Alright, can anyone help me? I need help with builds one for 800$, another one for around 1000$

What would be the best parts?

Thank you!

Okay but you still need to answer a few things first:

What purposes are you going to use these PCs for?

Do you need a monitor, keyboard, or mouse?

Do you need an OS?

Do you prefer Intel or AMD?

Where do you live?

Are you okay with going over budget by $100 (if you live in the U.S.)?

Is this for a friend or for you?

Answering these will make it much easier for us to help you out.


Yeah, sorry. He wants to play battlefield 3 on Max 1080p. He doesn't need a monitor or OS. As for AMD or Intel, just go for what ever is best for gaming which is probably going to be intel. I don't think he'll be making videos so AMD multi core feature wouldn't be utilized. We live in Lithuania,so yes computer parts are a bit more expensive then in the US. We also don't have some companies products like NZXT. Anyway hope that helps out. I'm personally equipped with a gaming pc. What I want from you guys is the best possible solution for my  friend at this point in time.

Thanks again

Here's a thousand dollar one:

Here's an 800 dollar one:

I tried to find a build using Euros and ended up with this build:

I know you wanted a $800 and a $1000 build. Sorry to say but this is more in the $900 USD range. When trying to do that with the difference in currency, it is a little difficult. But, I think I have put together something that he might like that is in the middle of the road. I have put a FX-6300 in here because BF3-4 like to use the multiple cores in the CPU. The CM Hyper 212 EVO for overclocking the CPU. Also, to top it all off, I have put in a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760!

Now, if you want to take advantage of Mantle, I also put together this build:

This is the $1000 USD build you might have be looking for. This is generally the same build as the one above but instead of a GTX 760, I put in a R9 280X from XFX. Also, I swapped out the PSU for an EVGA 600W 80+ Bronze.

I do believe that your friend will be able to play on max settings on either of these builds. I know for sure that it will be able to max on the second one! Anyway, hope this helps you out friend!

Alright, I'm left with one question before deciding. 8350 or FX 6300 for gaming?

If you want the absolute best performance you can get with AMD at this price range, go with 8350. If you want to save money yet game with very respectable performance, go with the 6300.

Or split it and get an 8320. Any of the three would work well.

Or you could do that! (If you think it will fit in the budget of course) ^

Yeah most 8320s can be OCed to 8350 speeds or higher. However, if you're just gaming and want to save a little cash an FX-6300 is prob your best bang for the buck CPU.
