    200% Sure You Can Run It Smooth And Faster.Because I Got A PC That Are Worst Than Your Spec And Still Can Run Between 50-70 FPS.

    looks good make sure you stay away from an ati gfx card, ati sucks.
    get a lower power card like a gt 240 if you dont plan on getting a 600+ watt psu.

    i prefer amd over intel anyday when it comes to cpu.

    Hi reg,
    I believe the psu is 750 watt, but still a bit confused on the 32/64 bit OS, from what I understand more than 4GB of ram works best with the 64 bit.

    The only difference between 32 and 64bit is that on 64 you can have more ram!!!

    The premise of ATi being "the suck" is an old premise which is slowly being changed with the newer range of ATi gpus.
    Im not a fanboy I just use logic, information and experience to form fact based decisions on performance.
    If you want a low power high performance card go for an ATi 6870. I can run 2x on a 600w psu. I have a gt240 in my office pc and though it is low power and relatively inexpensive its nowhere near the performance of the ATi card and isnt THAT much cheaper. The 6870 is only £140 at the moment.
    I would argue that the gt240 would heavily bottleneck the CPU and isnt dx11, so the 240 isnt very "future proof". The 240 also does not support tesselation among many other dx11 effects.
    ATi cards only problem were/are the drivers... ignore the ATi ones and get the latest custom drivers from guru3d.com (look for TWL / Von Dach).
    My other gaming machine uses a nvidia 560 gtx and its not as quiet,cool,efficient or as fast as the 6870. Additionally I was able to OC the gpu on the 6870 from 900mhz up to 1.1ghz without any noticable heat or stability issues.
    If you are unsure about ATi graphics cards and really want an Nvidia then on a budget the gtx560ti is pretty good, just make sure you get a non-referance cooler like on the Asus DirectCU, MSi Frozr or Gigabyte OC series.

    In my opinion the ideal setup for an upgrade without blowing the bank on excessive things would be

    Intel i5-2500k 3.3ghz - £150
    Asus P8Z68-V - £120
    8gb Gskill Ripjaw 1600mhz 1.5v - £60
    750w Corsair PSU - £60
    1x ATi 6870 1gb (Asus directcu for the aftermarket cooler) - £140
    OCZ Agility 3 SSD Drive 90/120gb - £100-£120
    Corsair h80 Cpu Cooler - £50
    Fractal Design R3 Case - £70

    Prices are estimates based on ebuyer.com

    That spec will hammer the pants out of everything for at least another 2 years. You can also use the corsair h80 cpu cooler to overclock the i5 up to 5ghz without an issue.

    Good Luck !

    You'll be able to run it in max res and anti aliasing a-ok. I have slower AMD quad core and a GTX 260 and the game runs at 80-140 fps with max settings. I have vsync on and it is pretty much a constant 60fps.

    This game would have way way better graphics if consoles weren't holding things back.

    32 bit can only use up to 3.5 gbs of ram 64 bit can run as much as you can fit in your mobo.

    64 bit works best w/ 64 bit cpus & apps that are coded for 64 bit & can also run 32 bit apps while 32 bits can only run 32 bit apps.

    the difference between 32 & 64 is the amount of cycles the cpu uses to process data, the higher the faster it processes, also same for ghz of cpu.

    I didnt put the HDDs in the spec list as the SSD can be used for OS/Boot/Fifa and you can just use your old hard drives for storage.
