  1. No u will be fine,
    whats your budget and resolution of gaming ?
  2. I game at 1440X900...and mayb in the same price range of the 4850...
  3. For that resolution,HD 4850 is the best buy
  4. yup tat was my idea....but had a slight hitch tat whether the 5000 x2 would cause a bottleneck ...hope it doesnt...
  5. If you worried about it . you may OC your 5000+ to 3.0GHz

  7. over 600w? lol you dont need nothing that high i ran a HD4870 on an Antec earthwatts 430 for almost 6 months with not a single problem as long as you have a decent PSU 500w to be safe :p (if you like to play safe ;))

    At load... consumption range reaches ~500W. So it'll be better to have more..
  9. No your CPU is fine. My buddy has a 2x 4800+ with a 4850 and runs awesome.


    The 4850 recommends a 450W PSU. What do you need 600W for? A "Quality" 450w will be sufficient.

    The 4850 is the best value right now. If you can afford more pick up the 4870 or 9800GTX+
  10. I think 450W minimum needed... why bay at minimum?
  11. hey thanks for the replies guys...sure i will keep in mind wat u ppl said...
