OK so save for another paycheck..lol get the 5850, as far as the PSU im leaning towards an XFX edition or Corsair sinc ethhose are easly avail. out here in japan? 750 watts should suffice or is that overkill
Well, it depends. The recommended PSU wattage for the 5850 is 500w. I don't know if you want to crossfire, but if not 750w is a little overkill.
I always go to www.guru3d.com. He recommends a psu wattage in his reviews.
here's the review for the 5850 crossfireX:http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-5850-review-crossfire/9
And most people here will recommend you go with the Corsair.
