  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    HD 5770 would be a good choice.
    About the CPU,socket 775 CPUs are out of production so consider something newer like Intel Core i5/i7 or AMD Phenom II

    yea i no i im actully selling my i7 rig and am downgrading trying ta save a bit of cash tring ta buil a realy cheap rig but be able to max out every thing at that res any suggestion on dx10 card and cpu iwas thinking e8400 and ati 4890
    thanks mark
  3. I wouldn't really do that,IMO keep the i7 and buy a new card whenever your budget allowed
  4. AM3 Platforms are still in the same range as Socket775 builds as far as monetary spending goes. I think it'd be best to get something in the Phenom II series for now because this will save you money in the long run. When new things come out, you'll need a completely new build because Socket775 is obsolete. However AM3 still has years for upgrades and improvements.
  5. thanks for all the replys guys but im guna still go with the 775 as i can get e8400 cheap and a cheap mobo
    still wondering bout the graphics tho do yas think a 4890 vapor 2gb would be overkill for maxing out crysis/gta4 at this 1280x1024


    thanks mark!
  6. Not it wouldn't be overkill.

    And you really are wasting your money on the 775 but, it's your choice.

    well to tell ya the truth this is only a temp rig i already have an i7 one wit gtx 295 its what im using to write this at the moment but have decided to break it down and sell it on ebay i just think that an e8400 will do all i want it to at the moment + i need the extra cash thanks for the reply mate [im buying my parts second hand except the mobo so i working out pretty cheap]
  8. oh well I didn't know they were used + really cheap. That changes the game :P
  9. the e8400 is still a very capable gaming CPU
  10. Someone needs to write a book about Ebay economics. "Anything Goes" ..I stay away from that part of the web now :) . Its a place where millionaires and foolish spenders mingle with opportunists ! A 5 dollar Atari game sold for 20,000 dollars the other day ?
    LMAO. I can understand collector value in many obscure things, but not that.

    Instead of HD 4890,i would go for 5770.
    Although 4890 is faster(not much especially in that resolution)but HD 5770 runs cooler and quieter and has a lower power consumption,also it supports newer techs like DX11,Eyefinity....
  13. the quad core q6600 is almost the best in 3dmark vantage
    and it is quite cheap
    you can see this on yougamers .com
  14. 3DMark isn't the best way to judge a processor's power,although its a good CPU but there are lots of better options than a Q6600 with better price/performance ratio
