Hi!

I want to know if this setup will be good for gaming. PSU will be 600W.

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-D3
CPU: FX-6300
GPU: Sapphire HD7770 Ghz Edition 1GB

What is your budget? It would be better to drop down to a 970 chipset motherboard and pickup a better GPU. Also, picking a lower watt PSU to increase funds for your GPU would also be recommended.

600 watt should do unless hes overclocking or doing crossfire/sli.

Around 500-600. But I will not change this setup (but if i really have to yes i will change it). I just want to know if it will run new games decently. Like no bottleneck or hick ups or anything like that.

You might have some issue's is you want to run games on full graphics!! For example B3, B4, crysis, will not run on full graphics. SC2, LOL, WOW, DOTA,DOTA2, Should be fine.

Actually with a 7850 the build should do fine on Bf3 and should handle crysis fine. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536?vs=549

The cpu would be a bottleneck in that case but not buy much. I would recommend an intel cpu but with maximum budget of $600 that should be the best gfx+cpu without breaking it.

You are paying for features you are not going to use. A GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 board is $50 less than the 990FX board you have picked out. You can use these saved funds to pickup a better GPU such as a HD 7850 or 7870.

Also, is the $600 the total system budget or just for the GPU+CPU+MoBo? If it isn't the full budget, what is the full budget and what components do you already own?

No the 6300 will not bottleneck a 7770 because its an entry level card but would bottleneck the 7950 because its a high end card. But I recommend going for a 7850 because its the best card for the money at the moment and is only about $30-50 bucks more than a 7770.

Its alright. A 7770 and 6300 would run most games at medium settings fine. Also whats your resolution?
The 6300 and 7850 will be much better you can do high settings and get high frames on most games.(Besides Crysis 3 for example)

Let me provide some clarity. The better video card will always provide better game play. When picking components, it is crucial to build a balanced budget so there are no bottlenecks. Your HD 7770 would be the bottleneck in your original build because you picked an entry level GPU and paired it with a fairly powerful CPU with a mid-range motherboard. Anytime you waste money on components/features you are not using, you are creating a bottle neck. Your build can make due with a 500W PSU and the funds saved there could be used to improve other aspects of the system.

Yeah actually a 7770 should handle most games on high settings at that res but I would still recommend the 7850 because it will max out most games for a little while especially at that resolution.

Its entirely up to the OP if they want a new monitor but getting a new monitor would require the OP to get a better graphics card to the play games since resolution puts more pressure on the gpu.

No it will not. It just affects how the game looks. The parts in the system are what matters. Lol monitor is a bottleneck. Monitor is not a bottleneck unless he will need a new monitor if he wants optimal visual quality. Bottlenecks usually refer to cpu or gpu.

alright! dats 1 down. thanks! it does makes sense. get cheap board to get better card. silly me.


The board isn't cheap by any means. You just are not paying a premium for Crossfire/SLI capabilities of the FX series.

umm... 1280x1024 60 hertz???


Is this the maximum it goes up to? If so, it is time for a new monitor.


yes. wat do u mean sir time for a new monitor? do i need to get a much bigger monitor? or a better one that can provide a much higher resolution?


Higher resolution but would require a more powerful video card.


so i need a monitor that will provide a lower resolution for the 7770?

No it will not. It just affects how the game looks. The parts in the system are what matters. Lol monitor is a bottleneck. Monitor is not a bottleneck unless he will need a new monitor if he wants optimal visual quality. Bottlenecks usually refer to cpu or gpu.


The bottleneck is the component that limits the functionality of other components. Having a 10 year old monitor hooked up to a modern card is a bottleneck since OP can opt to pick an integrated solution that would be capable of providing the desired settings to the existing monitor.

Just give me a total budget and I'll piece together something that works well. Also include components you already have.

$300? That is a tight budget. I assume you need ram as well?

Again Monitor is out of the question. It really doesn't matter at this budget. Like I said bottlenecks usually refer to system parts(Cpu, gpu).

Yes, means less expansion slots. But shouldn't be an issue.
