Budget Gaming Upgrade Tags: PC gaming Gaming Video Games Last response: July 10, 2012 1:05 AM in Video Games Share MarkdeBom July 9, 2012 6:29:08 AM Hi guys/girls, I am upgrading my computer at the moment for some gaming (mostly real time strategies) and would like some opinions on a current option of mine. I play on my TV so good 1080p performance is essential. Intel Core i5 3450 Ivy Bridge @ 3.1Ghz G.Skill F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT (2x4GB) DDR3 ASRock H77M Motherboard (PCI E 3.0 x16 slot) MSI Radeon HD7770 1GB Overclocked PCI E 3.0 How would this perform at 1080p on a game like Wargame: European Escalation as an example? Also I buy my parts from www.pccasegear.com (I'm Australian), so I'd would prefer if it stayed that way. Thanks in advance for any replies.

If you are content with PCCG, don't worry about the next bit, it is just my opinion. As an Aussie, I would definitely recommend using staticice (staticice.com.au) to check for the cheapest prices. m 0 l DM186 July 10, 2012 1:05:48 AM Yeah That up grade should play all the strategy games. I have two 550's and they play all the strategy game around. On the link you can see how much better the 7770 is then the 550. But I have two so it would make it about the same and in some cases a tad bit better. But still the 7770 will play all the game of strateyg. Good luck to you. 550 Ti vs 7770 http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536?vs=541 m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
