Hi Friends

I am planning to assemble a gaming PC for myself. Time to give my not so good Laptop some rest (with the intel HD3000), although it played out fairly well. I am looking for playing for specs that could let me play the following games on medium settings without lag:
[list=1]
[*]MOH warfighter
[*]Far Cry 3 (plays average on Intel HD3000)
[*]Hitman Absolution
[*]Crysis 3 (upcomming)
[*]Transformers war for cybertron
[*]Battlefield 3
[/list]
Please suggest the options for following hardware in the order of cost and performance:

1 - CPU (i can go for unlocked version in case i plan to overclock it in future) - Any stronger version of i5 (probably from the new ivy bridge arch)??
2 - GPU
3 - RAM
4- MOBO
5- Cabnit +SMPS

[b]My current laptop config:[/b]
HP probook 4530s, i7 Quad core 2360QM, 8GB DDR3, Intel HD 3000,
win7 x64


Thanks
Mark

Without a price range or a monitor resolution, we can't narrow it down much.

Good suggestion, but it all comes down to the budget really. I can vouch for the quality of the i5 - it doesn't even need overclocking, but the option is there and it overclocks pretty well.

560Ti is a good replacement if you want to save some money. One of, if not the best bang for buck card at the minute, it's the only card I want at the moment... but the difference between that and my 5850 is just not worth the increased expenditure.

Can't really go wrong with most Corsair Vengeance or G.Skill Ripjaw in my opinion, and DDR3 RAM is [b]so[/b] cheap at the moment, you can get a lot of high quality 8GB RAM Kits for less than

Totals to ... 28838. If you can look around for a cheaper 7850 GPU + a better processor, that would also be a good choice.
