Hi there, i have decided to buy a hd 5770 gpu, although i dont know what ones best, so far ive seen the sapphire vapor-x 1gb 5770 which looks really good, i may want to do some light over clocking on it and any help would be appreciated. and also it would be nice for it to have native VGA oe an adapter included in the box as with the sapphire 5770.
As that maybe true, i am making a new rig, here is my specs
AMD phenom ii x6 1090t
Noctua nh d14
Asus crosshair IV formula
4gb corsair dominator 1600
Antec cp 850
In that case I'd save a bit of money on the cpu (get a 1055t instead and overclock it - it's basically the same chip anyway). You can easily save a lot on the psu, certainly no need for an 850W when a 600W will do and more.
Yeah you can save a lot of money. Dominator memory isn't worth it imo, 4gb of bog standard memory will serve you just as well.
If you wanna do a lot of gaming on it, it's definitely worth saving on the cpu/memory and spending that bit more on a better graphics card.
you could also check out the gts450. they are a lil cheaper than the 5770 and offer similar performance and great overclocking. Im really tossing up between the two at the moment myself. But yeah, with a P4 and 17" screen, you wont notice the difference between a 5770 and a 5670. Is it even a dual core p4? if not, id say dont even bother with a 5670, get a gt220. anything better would be a waste.
