Build #2


+1 Sandy Bridge

+1 Radeon 6870


The hard drive you can swap out for an SSD any time you wish, plus you will only notice performance improvement where it relates to load times, not in-process performance. Most games, if the memory is available, will dump as much as they're able into memory, so the solid state drive will NOT give you better performance there since there are really no hard drive reads/writes. Sure, Windows will load faster, and the game itself will load faster... maybe you'll be among the first to actually enter a round, but once the game begins, it's all the same.


Sandy Bridge is a HUGE +1 in favor of the #2 build. For the price it cannot be beat until AMD Bulldozer series comes out, and even that's tentative. It has a fantastic speedstep that will kick up the core clock up to .4 or .5 with the stock cooler safely, and underclocks it as far down as 1.4GHz or 1.6GHz on that same speedstep. Just saw a buddy of mine crank his up to 4.7GHz stable with an aftermarket cooler, and he's planning on running 24/7 at 4.2GHz. Stock cooler that will probably come with that build will safely get you to 3.7 or 3.8GHz, and given the onboard video and the way they designed its pipe, it's a dang good CPU. Basically, I wish I had one :)


The GTX 465 and the Radeon 6870 are essentially in the same tier, so that probably comes out in the wash. I personally would probably prefer Nvidia, but that's because I always have. I know plenty of folks stick to ATI/AMD and are very happy with it, and that 6870 is a pretty darn good card and you shouldn't have trouble with BF3.
