Building computer!

Hey guys, im building a computer atm and all I have is a case so far, and this is what I plan to have:

- Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H Socket AM3, 4xDIMM, DDR3, PCIe-16, 2xPCI, 1xPCIe-1, 12xUSB2, Firewire, Audio, Video, 1xATA, 6xSATA, RAID, M-ATX, DVI, HDMI
- AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8GHz Socket AM3 Quad-Core
- WD Caviar SE 500GB SATA II 7200RPM 16 (not concerned with being leet with HD's)
- 4 GBs of generic value ram
- generic 450w PSU
- Radeon 5750 OR nVidia GTS 250 - Which one? I looked at a few comparisons, but all im going to be running is a 17" widescreen with 1366 x 768 res.

Since I live in New Zealand, the GTS 250 is about $200, while the 5750 is $250. I know there is a a few FPS advantage with the 5750s, but is it worth the price increase? I will run windows 7 with this setup.

Thanks guys

  1. Yes it is. the 5750 has dx11 support and even had a sound built in. You may want to make sure your psu has enough amps to drive either card.

    edit: earlier mistyped and said 5750 has dx10 support
  2. 5750 has DX11 support actually. As far as the PSU is concerned, besides the fact that its generic which means it is most likely crap, 450W will be plenty for a 5750
