Corsair CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005

My PC: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02174835&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=4223474&key=null&site=null#N1160

Now I need help choosing a GPU for my new pc cus I'm new to the pc gaming world, also can you guys tell me if the PSU and CPU fits on my motherboard and if these GPU's work on it as well? Softcore gaming, but NO WoW Thanks in advance :)

More about what card
  1. If all you're doing is softcore gaming, then a 5770 will be perfect for you, I can run WoW and COD titles maxed at 60 fps on a 1080p monitor. Plus, they are cheaper cards, so you can save your money.

    That processor will work with that motherboard, as will the power supply.

    Welcome to the Forums, and the world of computers :)
  2. Oh ok. Thanks for the warm welcome. (:
  3. Btw, which one is better, the nVidia GTX460/465 or the Radeon HD5770?
  4. GTX 460. Then SLI them lol
  5. common even a single gtx 460 is more than enough.
  6. Well If you are going to spend 200$ on a card, then go right now and buy this baby.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102883

    It has a promotion for $60 off and then another $30 from the rebate. Neither card stands against it.
  7. For $200 the MSI GTX 460 Cyclone is the best bet with enough performance for your needs. The GTX 460 also offers PhysX, generally better drivers, and better DirectX 11 tesselation performance than the AMD options. The Cyclone cooler is very quiet and keeps the card cool. If you are interested in overclocking, the Cyclone will also go well above 900 mhz.
  8. You guys are letting your own egos take over this forum. He said NO OVERCLOCKING, and he is just going to be going very soft gaming. He does not need tessalation, and does not need a $200 card from what he says. My origional suggestion of the 5770 would be plenty for his needs, and is only about $100 - $110.

    The 460gtx is better than the 5770, but it also costs more and will not get its full use from him.

    He might as well save his money for the future when better cards come out and when he may actually get into hardcore gaming. No need to blow your money on high end cards at this point in time.
  9. In response to your last part. My favorite brand is XFX because of their double lifetime warrantly. Other good brands though are Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Palit (heard good things about them). I think Sapphire is a good brand as well.

    I haven't heard much at all about PNY; but they were good years ago when I had a GT 6000 series card >.<
  10. PNY has a lifetime warranty and they are an American company based in Brooklyn, NY.
