Okay, so this set up will do me well? Maxed out settings and a decent frame rate for like Battlefield 3? Crysis 1 2 3 on full graphics, as well as Far Cry 3? If i will run into issues, i can probably save up a bit more or so? i want to avoid conflicts

I want to achieve atleast 40 frames. I am sure I can do that at 1600x900. since a vid i saw of somebody running at 2360 or what ever resolution was getting 25 consistent frames

All the games listed will run at 60fps on the 660 and 3570k. It only gets sketchy if you try adding AA to Crysis 3 and Farcry 3.

ALSO MOST IMPORTANTLY, because I want to learn.

Why would the i5 running at a lower mhz then the AMD quad fx cpu at 4.0mhz run a lot better and faster ? and all that jazz. i want a legit answer for once because most people never can explain.

Hey PPM, do I NEEEDDD a over 100 dollar motherboard? I dont need any fancy features, since I only run one graphics card. Is their much of a difference?

No, but unless you get a Z77 motherboard the 3570k is pointless. You can easily just get the i5 3330 and a B75 board instead. Much cheaper.

I see what you are saying. Gosh man, just because I am on such a tight budget I am close to just going AMD just because its cheaper. I hate being impatient. But I do want to achieve over 40 frames with my PNY Geforce GTX 660 card!

Then what is your budget?
Any good AMD chip with decent performance is going to ballpark in price to something on the Intel more than capable.
