I'm attempting to build a gaming PC that will run most new games such as Crysis, etc on High or Very High settings with a good framerate, etc. These are the parts I have selected. It adds up to around $660, and I do not with to spend over $800. Will these parts work fine, and do you have any tips/better parts I should buy? All feedback is appreciated. Thank you.
he already made the post the mods will move it anyway no good in go making another post now.
Go for the x4 640 rather.
You might want to research the track record of the 5870. It use to give alot of problems. dont know if its sorted out. You might have a look on google
I have 2 of that exact model of the 5870. XFX. The first one I got 9 months ago and the second I just picked up because it was $209 after rebates. The card is great. The only problem I had was the first card had an older BIOS which I have since updated, but the newer card has the updated BIOS and is fine. I just could not OC the card very much, from 850 to 900 mhz was fine but any memory OC caused artifacts.
With one card I max out just about any game with my i5 750 @ 4.0, but your CPU is going to hold your 5870 back.
