  1. Yes it will get 60fps but you are closing in on max at that point and games are only going to get more demanding. You should be good for a couple of years at 1080p though http://www.gamersnexus.net/game-bench/2652-battlefield-1-graphics-card-benchmark-dx11-vs-dx12

    Also, your PSU isnt the most reliable
  2. Best answer
    If you going for the Z170 MB, it would be better to get the i5-6600K
    It's a bit more, but will give some headroom in the future.
    Another thing would be getting an SSD, 120GB models can be found under 50 euro and 240GB for less than 100 euro.
    While it does not affect game performance directly, it does improve things if you have antivirus software installed and running. that not to mention better user experience.
    As already mentioned, the PSU could be better.
    Link your favorite online store and budget - will look for better option.
  3. 1st don't get this PSU. It's like quality.
    Go for the new Corsair CXm 550/450 instead (grey lettering), or XFX Pro / Core / TS with the appropriate wattage.
    Generally 450W will be fine.

    Also I'd up the cpu to a 6600k as both games are very demanding in terms of hardware (I myself get only 120 fps with an i7+1070).
    You'd need to add a cooler as the 6600k doesn't come with any.

    Also if possible go with 16gb Ram.

    Instead of the Z-170-A look for a Gigabyte Z170X-UD3 or Z170X-Gaming 3. They are just as good but a bit cheaper.
    If you can't afford the 6600k and want to stay with the 6500, get a H170 or B150 board instead as the money on a Z170 is wasted.
    I suggest a Gigabyte G1.Sniper B7 for example.
  4. In my country there is only 1 store so i am very limited and shipping is expensive. What do you think about getting a gigabyte gaming k3 motherboard and a 250 gb ssd. For the psu i will be using the cx 600 that i have in my older rig. I cannot afford a i5 6600k and 16gb of ram so those i cannot change. What do you think about that?
  5. the K3 is a good board. but it's a Z170 board. you don't need those with a 6500. you'd need a B150 or H170 board.
    as for the ssd depends on the brand.
    the CX600 is the lowest grade PSU and will potentially give you trouble (and don't think bcs 'it ran fine for 3 years' that it won't, it's just a matter of time). Rather get a new PSU instead of a 250GB SSD tbh.

    Im getting the k3 as its on sale and its cheaper the the b150 and h170. As for psu im preety limited to where i can buy from because shipping to my country is very expensive is the corsair vx series any good.
