  evapor 07:15 AM 14 Jun 13

After seeing the new generation of consoles ive decided to switch to PC gaming. I have looked around and came up with this list.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($204.99 @ Newegg) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.98 @ Amazon) Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($127.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($35.57 @ NCIX US) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.99 @ NCIX US) Storage: Intel 330 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($94.99 @ NCIX US) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card ($369.99 @ Amazon) Case: BitFenix Merc Alpha (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ NCIX US) Power Supply: XFX 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($59.99 @ Newegg) Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer ($15.99 @ Newegg)

Would this PC be powerful enough to run Crysis 3 at Max settings with 30+fps?

Should cope with that frame rate on Crysis 3 . I play in 3d with an i7 and a gtx 680 and get 60fps . Great game too . Only thing i would add to your build is a sound card and a decent set of headphones .

I can run Crysis 3 on the following specs: 650W Alpine PSU, Core2Duo Pentium D, 4Gb memory, Asrock G41M series mobo, HD5770 card (optional). Your specs are fine :-)
