So my current build so far running is:

AMD FX6200 3.8ghz black edition
12GB DDR3 1333mhz
Windows 7 ultimate 64bit


So im almost complete and i just need a graphics card.

what would you guys reccomend?, a 6870 1GB single fan card by xfx

or gtx560?

Note this system will be used for guild wars 2 maxed out and battlefield 3 maxed out.

Any thoughts and also with the specs atm how would you see it running ingame with the chosen  cards and my system together? thanks

Get the 560 Ti. It overclocks better. Should also beat the 6870 in everything.

My thoughts on your rig... should run ok. Your CPU will probably struggle.

Struggle? really, i think your calling crap there, my old cpu was a core 2 quad and it ran guild wars 2 fine, and your saying my new 6 core cpu will "Struggle"..... lol i find that hard to believe as it a contender for a i7.

Depends on your definition of fine. If it's playable for you, then that's good.

AMD does not have a CPU on the market right now that compares with Intel's last 2 generations of High End CPUs... that's what he wwas referring too.  As for the Video Card, an HD 6870 is a bit better than a GTX 560 (regular version - the Ti version is best of the 3 options).  With any of the above you will be able to play GW2 in PvE and sPvP @ 1080p on the Default "Best Appearance" settings with playable FPS.

*12 GB is an odd configuration since you lose out on Dual Channel mode.  If you have 4 DIMMS installed and not 3 then you may disregard that statement. ;)

I find your ram selection very strange/wrong for that processor and probably motherboard also. I would like to know what motherboard you have and no your not going to be maxing this game out in WvW with big zergs you Processor is going to kill you You could of got a better gaming setup for about the same amount you spent. http://pcpartpicker....parts/partlist/

Yes I buy intel and recomend  it but their nothing wrong with AMD if it's set up right. most motherboards today used duel chanel memory and if you knew what you were buying their no way you would use 1333 with that CPU they really like the 1866 with the 4.1 turbo clock speed but oh well it's your PC and mistake.

But to answer your question this is really hard to beat $159 if you get the rebate.
