Windows 7: New Rig. Are the parts all compatable - effecient?

New Rig. Are the parts all compatable - effecient?

I'm building a new Game Rig Designed to get the highest constant framerate in 64 player battlefield 3 multiplayer. (Want to avoid those tiny stutters from capped CPUs).
Can anyone else confirm that this combination of hardware will work well together?
Or let me know if Im missing anything important?

Will this Power supply work well enough? and
Is this motherboard lacking anything very important? the motherboard wont gimp any of the hardware will it?
Can I get better 4gig stick of Game performance Ram for 23$ ? I like this brand name.

Feel free to suggest other pieces from NewEgg. But I've pushed the cash as far as I can, the prices have to stay the same or lower. I would love any suggestions if Ive mad any bad decisions.

Motherboard: 49$

Power Supply: 49$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182199

Cpu: 149$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103962

Video Card: (Dont have 10 extra bucks for the 6780. Im ok with the 6850-2fan)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125353

Ram: 23$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220572

DVD: 15$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136240

**** Surely this DVD drive will read my windows CD before installing drivers, so I can install windows7 on my hard drive right? lol ****

**I've read up extensively on CPUs. I understand that the intel chips have the highest single core power and that the AMD x4 - x6s out perform the fx6100 chips. but the fx6100 specifically excels on 64 player multiplayer, which is what I want to cap the most. Any of these chips will do well enough for most games otherwise.
Feel free to suggest other CPUS if you have researched specifically battlefield multiplayer performance. I wont be going with Dual core intel, I dont have enough to go with Quad intel.

Case: I Have a case at home.

Like I said in the last thread. Bulldozer is not the way to go unles you are playing ONLY BF3. Still i would suggest another CPU due to the fact that that CPU will be nowhere near the roof so that the graphic card will limit the GPU anyway.

But your motherboard does support the bulldozer (AM3), Your graphic card will not be limited by the PCI-E slot. You will fit those RAMs on that motherboard. That PSU will be able to support all of your system.

Legaia, this motherboard says its am3+ ready.
It wont support the fx-6100?
Could you suggest one from newegg for 49$ that will?
I thought it would.
=============

layback bear, as I said in the post, I cant raise my prices at all, if you can find a corsair or seasonic PSU for 50 bucks, that will work. I would love to have the link. I would purchase it. thankyou.
I think this is the best ill get for 50$

I said it does support it. And like Layback said. If you want high end you will have to pay the money. Simple as that, no matter how much you research the matter you will never find a perfect gaming comp for that price. If you go with a poor quality chassie you will loose cooling and there are tons of other stuffs that matters as well. And you have most likey recived the same answers in your last 9 threads about this as well.

Either you go for a budget or you go all out and pay the cash. You will never be able to run BF3 on ultra without paying some decent cash. DICE is recommending a 6950 for the graphic card and a 4 core CPU. Those 2 combined would go over your budget.

Don't come sayiong that bulldozer is a 8 core CPU becous it's not. It's a 4 core cpu with 4 modules. those modules reduces the power of the other 4 "real" cores as well.

You could go with low budget items and over clock them but then you will loose the warranty and if something breaks you are left without a computer also for this you will have to putt more money into the cooling chassie as well as PSU.

And like i said before reduce the price on the CPU and go with a beter GPU.

fx 6100 Frap'sing 1080p with high speed travel across the map and zero stutter even in the record.
NEOTALENT.BENCHMARK FX6100 vs. Battlefield 3 (Benchmark by Neocore) - YouTube

the 2120 intel chip recording the same thing (With a bit of stutter skips cause its choking on the dual core) Im sure the game runs fine without fraps.
but the 6100 pwns both at once at 1080p hd even. /shrug

I could find other videos, there are plenty.

But these rigs using the same parts im listing, doing a great job.
Im not asking for 2500x resolution with ultra ultra 4xAA 16xAA.
Im just asking to make sure these pieces will work together.

ty for the confirm on the mobo. that was my biggest doubt.

The graphic card makes that game not the CPU!

I'm running the game on 2 6950's no MS and Phenom II x6 at 3.4GHz and the game does still lock becous of my graphic cards. It's not the CPU that is required in that game!

On top of that how do you know he's not been payed to say that? If i posted a video playing BF with a singel core CPU at 1GHz saying i recoreded it in 1080p max graphics and god knows. Would you belive that as well. Also running the game in 30 FPS is not that impressive.

I've actually recorded a video my self as well. This one have actually been uploaded at 1080p which hes not have been. And you will see that the game is extremly graphic intense. The gameplay you can see where locked at 29.9 FPS.

On top of that you can not benchmark a game in online play since the gameplay does very from every game.

(Oh you said mobo does support, ty )

again. single player videos dont count.
any of these cards have no trouble at all on single player maps.
even the current crappy athlon 2 64bit 2.7ghz chip / 9800 nvidia card im running now runs that first map with great framerate. no joke. I was amazed at how well it performed on the first few maps.
Multiplayer starts to hit dual cores hard though. maxing each core with nothing to space anywhere.

Im talking specifically heavy fightfights with 25 players on screen in a 64 player map.
I dont care what the guy said in the video, im just looking at the butter smooth 1080p record he got with his 6100.
Its not the only 6100 video ive seen record with that stable of record.
ive seen 970+ amd chips do the same thing, and intel quad cores do the same stable record.

its just the dual core chips that start having a hard time with it.==

============

Its true that the majority of BF3 is a GPU based dependancy.

up untill the point of 64 player maps. then its a different ballgame.
There are a few great charts out there that show the difference in heavy multiplayer useage.
I lost the links. i dug around for them. i lost em atm.
no big deal. im not asking for advice on the cpu or telling anyone they are wrong.
Im just happy enough with the 6100
i know its not the wisest choice, but it will run any of the games I have plenty well enough
