the 880 or 870 boards are not available here only 785g and 890gx boards.
wouldnt hd4850 or gts250 give better performance in crysis and other dx10 titles i dont care about dx11 as i already have plans to upgrade my gpu next year in april or may may be dx12 be up by then what do you say?
or should i get a hd5770 now
will the performance be equivalent to hd4850 and gts250 in crysis and crysis warhead?
and if i buy hd5770 would i be able to rub crysis 2 on atleast high or very high settings i dont care about AA.
the 5570 is about equal to the 4870(faster than both 4850 and 250, it and the 450 are the minimum I'd get in a modern system. the 5770 and 450 also use a lot less power than the older pair of cards. If you can afford/find it, a 6850 is even better and more power efficient
with hthe 770/870/880 not availablem get a 785 then.
yes they are available here the athlon ii x3 445 are at same price at phenom ii x2 550 level approx. very very little diff. in price
which you suggest pii with 6mb le cache
or athlon ii x3 with 1.5mb l2 cache
The 200 MHz increase on a 435 to match a 445 should be doable, even on the stock fan. You might also be able to unlock a 4th core on either the 435 or 445 with just a bios check. dunno if the 785s have that or not though. If not, its no big deal.
