Hi Im going to be building a pc very soon here are my parts:
CPU: AMD AM3 Phenom II x4 925 2.80Ghz Quad core
Motherboard: Asus M4A79XTD-EVO
Graphics card: HIS 1GB 5770 PCI-E VGA Card
Hard Drive: Seagate SATA 500gb HDD
Optical Drive: LG Sata Black DVD RW
RAM: 4gb DDR3 RipJaws 1333mhz
Case: Antec 200 v2
Power Supply: Crosair VX550 watt
Will all these parts be fine together and will it be a decently fast system?
The GTX 460 beats a 5830 significantly in most games, and the 1GB is not far away from a 5850 at all. Even the 768MB version would be a massive improvement over a 5770 or 5830.
Also the revised Fermi chip GF104 is much cooler, quieter and uses less power (similar to a 5850) than the GF100. I usually don't recommend Nvidia cards but at ~£180 for the 1GB edition I can't see any reason not to recommend it. It's actually the first Nvidia card I've seen that I would consider buying.
It remains to be seen what price one will be in Australia, and whether it can be worked into the budget, but the OP definitely needs to be aware of it.
The 460 seems to be a bit back and forth, but you are right, it does seem to beat the 5830 most the time so hovers between the 5830 and 5850 in performance, so if it is priced between those two then it is a good buy, but in my experience Nvidia have a bad habit of pricing way too mch especially in UK
Well ill see what happens when its closer to the time i am buying the parts..... the place i am buying the parts from dont sell the GT460 unfortunatly but i might be able to get it from another place, also im aussie so thats probably why the prices are a bit different....
