Many of you are saying the Graphics card is not good for the i7 so what graphics card would you recommend.
- ?Lv 48 years agoFavorite Answer
The thing with gaming computers is that the power is primarily derived from the graphics card, and the processor supports and only needs to be strong enough to handle the graphics card. The i5-3570k is powerful enough to handle even the best single GPUs like the GTX 690 (a $1000 card), therefore it is technically better for gaming to save the $100 on the CPU and put that money into a graphics card.
That is why Comp 1 will be better for gaming than Comp 2 despite being cheaper:
Comp 1 - i5-3570k ($220) with GTX 660 ti ($260) = $480
Comp 2 - i7-3770k ($320) with RAdeon 7870 ($220) = $540
However, an i7-3770k is still more powerful than an i5-3570k, not sure where anyone gets the idea that it isn't. And when you aren't gaming and doing tasks such as video editing, web surfing, downloads, etc., the i7-3770k will show its superiority.
The graphics card you chose is still excellent. Check the performance benchmarks for high end video cards:
If you are looking for a high-end videocard, the GTX 660ti is the most cost effective at the top of the benchmark charts. The ones above it are typically $350 - $1000
Either way, your setup will be able to handle all current games, most on max settings. If you want to ensure the ability to play at high settings for a couple of years, get the GTX 660 ti or better

To be honest it will max out almost anything, 64 player battlefield 3 "may" have a little trouble. It's a good pc. Only problem it's about double the price compared to if you put it together yourself, also that i7 is going to be overkill for that 7870, many "gaming computer" companies will use a way over powered cpu, and then skimp out on gpu.

That is over priced for what it is .And what is it with pre built gaming computers and an i7 you don't need an i7 the Graphics card is not one i would use .I would change that .
