I read somewhere about a graphics not being able to reach ts full potential on some cpu's.


If im gonna build this pc-

Core i5 750 2.66 ghz
motherboard not decided(suggestions please, need crossfire 8X 8X)
Ram 2x2 gb ddr3 1333 mhz
Graphics card - hd 5850 ( which manufacturer should i buy from?)
PSU (suggest please)

Would the graphics card be able to reach its 'full potential'?


and would these components fit it my pc case of dimensions- 489 X 242 X 538 mm?

I live in india. are the components available here?

Thanks for all advices and suggestions

First of all id recommend going with a Phenom 955 or 965 instead of a i5, and a mobo that goes with it.´It will save u some money and the stock preformance is almost identical. Also the Phenom is very easy to overclock.

Yes, the i5 or the Phenom will enable the 5850 to spread out its wings.
Go with the XFX model.

PSU: prolly a 600W

Im pretty positive that they will fit :)  dont be lazy and check out the dimensions urself if u want to be 100% sure.

The i5 750 is one of the best gaming CPUs you can buy. It will also overclock quite well. The HD5850 is a great graphics card to use with an i5 750 and neither one will hold back the other.

XFX is a good brand as is Sapphire and HIS.

Go with a good quality power supply of 550w or above ( you only need more if you plan add a second 5850 for Crossfire in the future....if so go with 750w ) from a company like Corsair , Seasonic , PC Power and Cooling or Antec.

It is hard to beat Gigabyte motherboards.

I have no idea about parts in India, sorry.

I did recommend some power supplies. As I stated before if you plan on running 2 x 5850s then you need a 750w unit. The brands I recommended are all high quaility. I have no idea about prices for you.....somewhere in the ~$100 US range a little more or less depending on sales or rebates.
