Hello everyone, It's finally time to order my first pc build! Saturday is the day, and I am looking for a green light on the system I have chosen. It is a pc for gaming, but I don't worry too much about AA. It will play at 1920x1080. Here it is first of all..
Thoughts: I am on a budget of £500 and although I would love the 5850, it's not going to happen, I understand that I am playing at a very high reso for this card, but I have heard very good things about it.
Thoughts: Although reading that I can get away with a cheaper CPU, I plan on playing games such as GTA IV and Bad Company 2, which are very cpu intensive. This CPU again I have heard extremely good reviews of it.
I would buy a stronger PSU, at least 700W, the price is not that much higher and it will gives you the chance to Crossfire your system with another 5770 later. You will have about the strenght of a 5850.
Hey again, got round to ordering and found some parts are just a tad too expensive. I need some alternatives for the following:
(have already purchased phenom ii 955 and hd 5770)
The motherboard that I decided to go with because it had the sata 6 and the usb 3.0.. I am realising I dont think I can afford such luxuries, This is the one I was going to get http://www.ebuyer.com/product/205849 , I am looking for a decent one for gaming, thats a little cheaper, thanks.
