Hello,
I'm looking for advice on a pc build on max budget of 1000$ I have a 19" aoc hdmi moniter and can get vista . I may upgrade to a 22" aoc hdmi soon and it can support higher resolution. But for now can I max out almost every game with a ati radeon 5850 or 5870? Thanks for Any help

Well gosh, gK, ... I used to say the same thing, until all the kiddies started telling me that some newer games use a 2GB frame buffer, or some such ...

... I AM refering to the 5870. ... I'll defer ... I guess, but I remain confused (now).

= Uhg =

Lemme know if you change your tune ... gK is likely more righter than me ... but I do trust the kiddies, too. ... what to do ?

^ Well the HD 5870 doesnt utilize the 2GB frame buffer entirely...So the 1GB would do...But then again other parts also come into play...If you need the whole PC...
This sticky would help suggest things...

Ok here's the more info for build. purchase will be in about a month. Used for gaming mostly. Parts not required are os and moniter. No overclocking or sli. I've heard a tripple core amd is ok for a proccessor

^ Only at very high resolutions - say 2500X1600, that 2GB frame buffer might help...But for 1080p, I dont think it would matter much...

Thx, gK,

Athlon-II 435 or 440

890FX mobo ... if flush with cash ... but that would be for future xFire.

^^^Dint refresh...

And Yes AMD Tri-Cores are very good, but they are even better if you overclock...
But 890FX is not required IMO...IF the OP is interested in crossfire, then 890GX would suffice...

X3 440 + MSI 870 - The reason I chose this mobo is the OC Genie...It is a feature that overclocks the CPU automatically so you dont have to...

This setup should be able to play most of the games maxed out @1080p...and I guess its well within the 1K mark...

^ Thanks...
@Doom1609 you can very well get a Crossfire board + a Phenom CPU if you drop to HD 5850, which is still powerful enough for 1080p...thus opening up the option of future crossfire...But if you very certain that you will always be sticking with 1 powerful card, then the above setup is fine...
