  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    It depends on what you want to do with your PC,but for gaming HD 5850 with a Athlon2 X4 is a better choice

    Go for High CPU. Because It determines the performance more.. GPU determines Graphics and Gaming Performance......

    I think you meant 5850...

    @ T-Dog :

    If you're intending to use your computer as a gaming platform, the GPU will make a huge difference hence justify cutting on the CPU budget to afford a GPU one notch up.

    Then again, you can grab a 555 Phenom 2 and play the core unlock roulette, could end up with a quad core for $100

    If you're more worried about having a computer that "feel" fast and don't care much about games, put that money toward a SSD instead.
  4. oops :D yes i meant 5850,just edited my post.
    thanks :)
  5. Like the above said, if you're looking at gaming then go for the better graphics card and cut back a little on the CPU. If on the other hand you're not looking to game and just want a general use or productivity PC then go for the better CPU and possibly as SidVicious metioned a SSD :) Good luck!
  6. For gaming: 5850 and Propus

    Otherwise: 965 and 5770(Or maybe SSD as Sid said).
