Description

This is my current computer. It has evolved a lot over the years. It started as just A8 3850 with IGP, and I have done extensive modding and upgrading over the years.

Runs BF3 at Ultra at 40-60 fps. It maxes the rest of my games. :)

I'm not sure what you mean by wat. Do you mean you are surprised or think its impossible. I have 650 ti boost which is about equal to a 7850 and it also runs BF3 at ultra 40-60 fps 1080p

Our builds are very similar, I wish I had a 2gb 7850.

Needs another 4gb of RAM, other than that it's great!

Why does it need more ram?

Nowadays, 4gb isn't really gonna get you by on some things, plus it's better to future proof. I'd add another 2 or 4, and then you will be all good to go.

EDIT: Thought you were OP. Pretend I said that to them.

"Nowadays, 4gb isn't really gonna get you by on some things" But then again what part nomatter the price or performance is good enough to do EVERYTHING? Quad SLI 780 Ti's fully overclocked? Say hello to 5 4k monitors in nvidia surround.

What other games have you played and what FPS do achieve? Any chance we could get more pics of the interior?
