hi everybody!
Im looking for a computer for gaming.
What is better i5 2320 with GT530, 8gb ram. or i3 560 with GTX460 OC 4gb.
what will run Battlefield 3 better?
what will be the avarage fps for each one?
 
GTX460 is better since BF3 is not that CPU dependent, neither will run max settings well.

My guess is i5 machine will run you 60 fps on low-medium settings, i3 machine will run you 60 fps on high settings.

i'd go for the i3 and 460 combo, because like the previous poster said, BF3 isnt so much CPU dependant as GPU. for frame rate i'd say with a 460 you'd be playing on high settings if you want 30FPS + or medium if you need more FPS. my 560 Ti does high (with a bit of ultra) at 40-70FPS so a 460 should still be able to get 30+ on high.

I have another choices:
1)Core 2 dou 1.86ghz with Radeon HD 6950 or 6970.
Will it run bf3 on ultra or less?
2)i7 2600 with Radeon HD 6870 or Radeon HD 6950(it will cost more money for me but if this system will survive more time then other systems, it worth it).

i asked some people about the comparsion of graphic cards... i dont know what is better, to buy nvidia or amd-ati... what is better, what is better for a new computer that will have i7 2600 8gb ddr3 1666, HD 7870 or GTX 570?????
 

number 2 is the real deal. its the only 1 you have mentioned that will play bf3 well. personally i would get the 2500k over the 2600 as the kseries can be oveclocked which gives you more headroom down the line.
