Well for 1080p yes but when it comes to 1440p (80% more pixels) I've been told no. The problem being the 1gb memory on lower price cards.

Hello there, thanks. Yep the 64gb is just for OS and Photoshop/Lightroom. I actually already have a U2711 for gaming but I'm switching to 120hz so that will be used on the editing/browsing build since it's meant for it lol

Ya I wouldn't blame you I love my 3570k I have now. I would do it to have something a bit different, plus the proc is ready to overclock like crazy. I would be stuck between this and a i7 corsair build for 2,000 if i can just sell my current rig.

Soprry I was unclear, but I've had this build for six months now. I'm just wondering about the new fans I want to put in.

Unfortunately the 280x is nothing but a re-branded 7970 http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/10/10/week-in-tech-amds-mostly-not-new-graphics/ so gaming publishers like RPS are recommending lower cost 7970's over new gen.

Ok that's cool too! make sure the one you end up with has 5 sec refresh rate at the most for games. And hell ya I'd say either get the 290x or two 7950/7970's since they will all work with Mantle. Even 2 7970's could be worked into the budget. It's already known the two 7970's WILL be better for 1440p than the 290x, and will stay cooler since there doing half the work each rather than 100%.

Very true there is ups and down to both your's and my suggestions. Since I plan on going crossfire with my 7970 I hope they will perfect the micro stuttering issue. I'm thinking since DICE and AMD are already working together it shouldn't take long with BF4. A review of the new cards I was reading today from Rock Paper Shotgun i think said they will continue recommending lower price 7970's over the new gen's equivalent because it's 95% same card and mantle still works with it. 2 cards is the way to go with 1440p because it's such a strain on a single gpu which i can see from my 7970. They haven't officially released the info on the top notch new gen AMD card yet, i think it's R9 290x but that same review was saying it's like an nVidia Titan and if it's cheap i'd say get that. seriously tho i'm about to buy a 144hz monitor to replace my 1440p because 60fps just isent enough with a nice build. Also I here battlefield is amazing at 120+ fps. Consider this over a 1440p. Lots of people call it the best gaming monitor in the world, and If you went nVidia with the cards you can game in 3D! http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vg278he

Hello there I currently play bf4 everyday on 1440p monitor so I know exactly what this will take. I currently run 1 HD 7970 and it handles everything on high at 50-60 fps. If you want to max everything out and never drop below 60fps then go with 2 7950 cards with 3GB memory each (more is better for 1440p gaming). All these parts are highly rated and the cards would come with 6 FREE GAMES!!! This would be one KILLER build. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Haha I hear you man. Ya that would be too crazy you'd feel like your in the game! No that other one is only 60hz and has to be at least 120hz to support 3d. Also only nVidia cards currently support 3d on that monitor, but since this rig would be set up so nice to add another GPU you could get an nVidia card for the same price (not quite as powerfull and also not as good for multi-monitor), and another down the road when it's much cheaper. like this one http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx670dcmoc2gd5

Thanks I seriously recommend getting it for lots of reasons. For a monitor I always suggest this 144hz Asus monitor so you can actually see your frame rates over 60 since they will be. Up to 144 fps. Making everything from gaming to just moving things around your screen way smoother. It's one of the highest rated monitors ever and has a 1 millisecond response time. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vg248qe but it's 260$. On a budget I would deffinently say this one here from Newegg http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs247hp because it's a great deal right now, still a 24 inch and a 2 ms response time

Holy crap check out the build I got for under a 1000$. This is a true gaming machine. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1MWnP ddr3-1866 ram, 1TB hard drive, better card then 760 and it comes with 3 awesome games of your choice, still the bad *** CPU cooler to overclock, and a nice 850W PSU so in the future you could go cross fire (not necessary now as the 7970 can run any game at ultra) all HIGHLY rated parts as well which is awesome.

Hello there welcome to PC building [: The two important things with a business computer is speed and reliability. graphics are the least important thing for a computer when it comes to business. You want a very fast CPU with fast ram to match. Some programs may run much better with some kind of graphics so I included a CPU that has integrated graphics which I know are more powerful than any program you guys will download. An SSD will be important for her to download the operating system itself on, as well as any programs like Microsoft office etc. but those programs dont take up much space. I think a 120 gb ssd would work just fine because the hard drive is 7200 rpm which is pretty fast as is. I upgraded that hard drive to a 2TB version of a better rated brand so you wont have to worry about loosing your important files. Also I chose a small case which I've been told has nice air flow with the 2 included fans, and is classy looking as well. no need for a mid size case here. The ram ddr3-1866 ram will make this thing even faster but only 4gb is needed unless she will be doing heavy Photoshop or video editing work. A smaller power supply as well that is semi-modular which will keep your electric bill down and save room for circulation in the case. Last but not least a 24 inch screen. This is a great deal and if you have a Microcenter near you we can make it 60-100$ cheaper even. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Comment reply on Forum Topic "$400 Build"

It depends if you have a 720p or 1080p monitor. At 720p for a 3d graphic intensive game it could run it on high settings easily but if you have a 1080p monitor you will just have to turn a few of the settings onto medium leaving most at high but it will still play games great at 60 fps. A game like Dota or even left for dead 2/ half life 2 could run on maximum settings no sweat. I would strongly recommend the build with this processor included tho to really up the performance, and make it so u can upgrade graphics card someday. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1MtoQ this is an AWESOME BUILD for around 430$ trust me. Also do you live near a Microcenter store?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "$400 Build"

ya your right that would be the better choice anyway because with a 500W power supply you can support just about any single graphics card on the market, unlike with a 430W. So 2 years down the line when this HD 7770 cant handle new games anymore you can get a HD 7970 which will cost the same as the HD 7700 does now [:
