  1. what is your budget? and what resolution do you plan to play at?
  2. im not quite sure yet but with the current set up i am running right now (i3 2100 on integrated graphics) is 1680x1050 and already seems pretty good to me, but i might want to go all the way up to 1980x1020 if my budget allows for a good gpu. anyway, what i plan on doing is i upgrade to an i5 3570k or non k depending on whether i would benefit from the k or not and give my i3 cpu to my girlfriend. our budget is $150-$200 for the both of us. what would we be able to get with that? thanks

    update:
    i forgot to mention that she will most likely be running at a lower resolution than i am

    so two graphics cards for $150-200?

    You could grab 2x7790's, they're $80 after MIR each

    If one will be on 1050, and other on 1080p, you could get a slight imbalance in cards
    Get one 7790, then for second card, grab an 7850 and OC the 7850 [this one already has a slight factory OC]

    The 7850's are great overclockers and the 2GB of VRAM will be helpful
  4. thanks :)
  5. No problem :)
