Hello,

I have an AMD Athlon x3 processor and are planning to buy a Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1 GB Graphic Card.

Would this work in games?
are the processor good enough to play bfbc2 or black ops?
can this graphic card work with this processor?

i have cheked the motherboard, place and power.
but when i am using: Can you run it (http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/.) it says that my CPU is to low to play bfbc2 and black ops.
do you know if that is true, or is the netside wrong?

it was only the processor and the graphic card that couldn't take the game.
but i am buying a new graphic card.

i have a AMD Athlon(tm) ll x3 440 processor 3 GHz

I just got my MSI 6950 (xfx all sold out on the egg =/) and it flashed flawlessly. Furmark/Crysis2 stable :) . I now have a 6970 with less power usage than a traditional 6970, and temps are still lower than my old 4890s. *flex

That reminds me... time to change my config.

If you do go this route, make sure you buy the reference version (original AMD cooler).

I have a Athlon 445 @ 3.4 Ghz and a 6850. While I have not played either of those games it has run all the games I have tried flawlessly. I think you will be fine.

According to that it says I can run both "fast" and exceed requirements on both games.

Careful; many PSUs that come with a case (Antec is a notable exception) are overrated junk that can't produce anywhere near 500W.
A quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch) and 80+ certification for efficiency. Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax, and XFX are among the better brands.
Logisys, which Newegg has been shamefully including in a lot of their combos lately, is among the worst.

Yes, that is indeed one of the "notable exceptions" from Antec.
You'll like that case too, unless you overclock a lot. Cooling isn't great for overclocking (you'd want to add a front fan), but it is solid, well-built, and very quiet.

Edit: Don't worry, you don't need to add another fan if you either won't OC or only do mild increases.
