So im currently building a computer, however, i really have no idea on what components I need for what motherboard and instead of bothering my tech friend for the umpteenth time, i came here. Im currently looking at a Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA 1155 here: http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-CrossFireX-DisplayPort-M... and I currently have no idea what processors would be good for it, what type of wattage I need for it, or whether or not the AMD Radeon HD 7770 I want to get will work for it. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
That's a really expensive motherboard. I wouldn't suggest that one unless you were spending around $1500 USD for a build.
Can you provide more details? What's your budget?
Buying: Completely new desktop
OS? Windows 7 (Im re-using my current hard drives)
Monitor? I already have two, one hp w1907 and a Gateway FPD1510 that should work.
near a microcenter? Best Buy is the closest
Note*- The HD 7770 and 550Ti are close matches for performance as are the HD 7870 and 660 Ti.
Note2*- I know you were talking about the HD 7770 but these will preform much better. The 7770 would work OK but you won't be getting a steady 60FPS on most new games maxed at 1080P. I have the 5750 and it preforms well for the price but those cards are much better.
