the 880 or 870 boards are not available here only 785g and 890gx boards.

and

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.
thanks

i say i get a


core i3 530 4gb ram and hd5770

as the athlon ii x4 paired with hd5770 would destroy my budget a bit(or may be i can pair it with hd5750 icooler iv)

what do you guys have to say about it

no, they don't.

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.

hmm. Are Athlon II X3s available? an X3 445 is also an excellent chip.

If the X3 is not available and you can't swing a 5770 or GTX 450 (the 450 runs a little cheaper than the 5770), then go ahead with the 4850.

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.

about 75% of the 445s unlock a 4th core. about 50% of 555s unlock a 3rd core. Of that 50%, only about a quarter unlock a 4th. (so about a 1-in-8 chance of unlocking a 4th core..)

Its possible, but your odds are a lot better of getting a 4th core with the X3 than the X2.
