I wana use programs like cinema 4d and games like gta 4, bf 3 on 22" screePočetna»Proizvodi»Grafičke kartice (VGA)»VGA PCI-E ATI Radeon»VGA AMD Radeon 6870 MSI OC 1GB/DDR5,/2xDVI/HDMI/2xDP/256bit

So, which one has best performance and can fit in budget?

the 6850 is a cracking card when updated! and at little over Ł100 its well in budget.

The 6870 is best for value and performance.

The 6790 is best value but not recommended for very high resolutions.

GTX560-ti is the worst value but most powerful.

I suggest the 6870 as it best for budgets and has great performance.

The 6850 is a good suggestion but the 6870 is worth the extra mile in my opinion.

Games like BF3 would run best on quad-core systems. (The I5 is quad-core, I3 is not)

Ok, thanks both.
So it's i5 2500(200€) and 6870(170€)
That's 370€ total.
8gb dimm ddr3 1333mhz 50€ and h67 80€.
That's 500€ total.
Now I have cd room and ssd/hdd left only, right?
Room is about 20-40€ and ssd is 85€(64gig) so its 625€.
I have a hdd (500 gig) in my old computer, almost new, so I will put it in this one.
I don't need fans or anything like that, right?
That's 625€ + about 120€ for 22" :S
Eh, I forgot housing and psu... Thermaltake Commander (45€)and TermalTake LitlePower 600W(68€)
So it's about 700€, hmm, h61 and it's 660€ ^^
Can someone tell me is this config good?

We can not tell for sure since we do not know what your chassie is. So praticly that would work wonders, Theoreticly. Thats a different story.

Also what socket is the CPU you are keeping in mind and what motherboard do you have. If we get the answer to what motherboard you are using we will know if it supports the RAM memories you are thinking of buying as well.

I'd prefer a 2500k, to permit overclocking. (Extremely easy with the unlocked multiplier.) That suggests an aftermarket CPU cooler. Example:

COOLER MASTER RR-212E-16PK-R1 Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler (EU Version): Computers & Accessories

That'd require a P67 or Z68 mainboard. (I recommend the Z68.)

Slippery slope, isn't it?
