Is the MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB good for gaming?

For world of warcraft, League of Legends, Assasins creed, and grand theft auto (but that's the limit, not getting something as powerful crysis 3)
Oh yea and I noticed theres like msi radeon and sapphire radeon and stuff, does it matter which one I chose? I just saw that msi had some fan i think so I figured I'd pick it

    Hey that 7850 is a powerful card! Make no mistake about it bro. :) IT will even play Crysis at medium to high settings if you have a good CPU! :D ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte are reputable brands. Get the MSI, you'll enjoy it.

    Wow a gaming expert! This is all I need haha alright I'll either get MSI for the fan or gigabyte because I have a gigabyte mother board if that matters
  3. It won't matter whichever card you get if you won't OC your GPU. It also wouldn't matter which brand your mobo is. :)

    If you wouldn't mind giving a hand with my build will these parts be good for gamming?

  5. @thekingpewe: Bro there are cheaper optical drives out there, find something cheaper, I saw one around $9. You only need that for your drivers, no need to spend 20bucks for an optical drive. Then if you can find a cheaper case, that would also be nice. Then all the money you can save from that, get a 6300 or 6350 if you can push your budget. The 4300 is way too weak IMHO, the 6350 would be perfect for gaming. :)

  7. Yes it's still compatible, both the 4300 and 6300 series cpu are am3+ socket. Everything is good to go bro. :) Looking better!
  8. How does it feel not being able to play BF4? lol
    Because I can't even play cs1.6 on the LOWEST settings possible with more than 15fps :(

    64mb of integrated graphic card
  9. @Snyte: It sucks when you want to play a game and it won't run well on your rig, but when the time comes that you get to upgrade it, DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN it'll be the most satisfying feeling in the world WHEN GAMING. ;) You won't even say hi to your wife or gf :P hahaha
