Or you could go to other places that could also be just as competitive on their pricing.

Get off the high horse Alfonse! Shop around as much as you like but get a company to build it for you ... with your specs ... saves time, money and comes with a warranty! Do you give yourself a warranty every time you 'fk' up? Get a life ... :)
you've built 'one' so far to my memory[/i]

Implying it's cheaper. Implying building it isn't the funnest part. Implying each individual part doesn't come with a warranty

I've built one for myself, one for my father/brother/sister in London, one for my next door neighbour, and two a couple of years ago when I interned at this awful networking solutions company

As a side note where do you source your parts Alfonse (...oi oi!)?

Urgh, build the PC yourself babes

Mines absolutely gorgeous. Was cheap as hell to put together, runs practically silently and is always colder than room temperature. Don't even get me started on the airflow

It works out cheaper as well

Hi sykes2011 and welcome to the forum. I've been playing BF3 MP daily since its launch with no problems and have now also finally completed BF3 SP, due to the fact that I've been online too much :) ...all this with a card that doesn't meet the requirements .... a 9800GTX+.

So to answer your question, yes a GTX570 will be fine but so will many others:

GTX590,580,570,480,470 and GTX560 Ti and 560. (The 560 ti is really good value for such a good card)
