From 8400GS to HD5770 or HD6850

Hello

Well, i have another question.
Would a OCZ StealthXStream 500 W or Advance 650W handle a HD5770 or HD6850 smoothly in single or crossfire?
And if not, can u please reccomend me a PSU up to 50$ that could do that.

Best regards,
RobisssLV

  1. For Single it would be perfect, But CF is 50-50.
    Ask around fro more opinions.
    I would get a 6850 and stick with 1 card.

    4GB DDR3 RAM
    250gb SATA3 7200rpm HDD
    Nvidia 8400GS
    Codegen ATX 400W PSU

    this $200 for psu and gfx card.?


    yes. only for that.

    in the beggining i was thinking only about a GPU, but then I noticed that my PSU is a crap.

    you need a good combo deal for the gfx card and psu..

    Can u recommend me something, that would max everything few years further?

    that might not be possible on $200 total but we can get some good hardware for that amount.
    thought about nVidia cards and not ATi/AMD.?

    I dont know wich would be better.
  10. Quote:
    me personally prefer nVidia and especially with Intel chip and chipset motherboard (if you have).
    as I stated it's my personal choice.

    how's this:

    + $30 rebate - gfx card

    For how long time the GTX460 would handle everything on 1280*1024 res with high fps?

    also the HD6850 is a few dollars more but not by much.

    But i also want a quite quiet PC.
    Right now i can't even hear it :D

    not a much noticeable difference in sound.

    it seems the higher the resolution the better the nVidia option.


    Max resolution for my monitor is 1280*1024 (17 inches)

    adding more money and getting the GTX560Ti..... :D


    I wish i would have rich parents or more money :D
  17. Go with the HD 6850/5850 and GTX 460. The HD 5770 is such a terrible card for the price.
  18. erhh at 1280x1024, buying a 6850 or gtx 460 is PRETTY MUCH a waste of their power. At that res, games become CPU intensive. What is your cpu anyways?

    Also, HD 5770 is not terrible for its price, in fact it's actually one of the best for its price.

    specs listed on first page, read thread..


    If i dont have a SYS_FAN, should i get one?
  21. Quote:
    of course..

    What would it exactly give? :D
  22. And if the HD6850 has a PCI-EX 2.1, but i have 2.0, is that a problem?
  23. Quote:
    probably not but if anything a BIOS update would fix I think;
    I still say nVidia route you should go but it's your call.


    Im thinking about a GTX460 too
  24. wait a second what resolution are you using?what about a gts 450?
  25. But would a this PC fit together normally and would max out newest games on 1280*1024 with good fps?
    PC specs:
    Intel core i5 760 2.8Ghz
    4gb DDR3 RAM
    HD6850 or GTX460 (can't decide)
  26. I have the GTX 460 and recently got the i5-760. This thing flies at 3.91ghz and 880/3800 for the video card.

    Even at 1280x1024 the HD 5770 can't do anti-aliasing beyond 2x so it's garbage.

    Get a i5-2500K; I had a gift card and didn't have much of a choice.

    I bought the i5 just before the 2nd generation came out.
    Would a GTX460 or HD6850 handle newest games and few years further smoothly?
  28. Hello??? :D

    for years like maybe 2...
    you should invest a few more dollars and get the GTX560Ti


    Its too expensive. And i dont know where to get those ''few'' dollars

    But the HD6870 is only a little bit better than the HD6850 and GTX470 is a bit worse than the HD6850

    HD6870 is lots better than the HD6850 that's why everyone wants to flash it to one...
    GTX470 I listed is $200 and it will SMASH the HD6850..
    look and compare the prices.
    WHERE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR YOUR INFO.?

    And the HD6870 vs GTX470?
    I think they are almost the same

    NO.
    GTX470 wins as well, but they are more of a competitive match.
    http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/290?vs=311

    now if you are just talking about running crysis at the highest resolution then OK HD6870
    but anything else, GTX470..

    I dont like crysis :D

    I wanna max out games like GTA, CoD, BC2 and other best known games
  34. A GTX 460 1GB is a really impressive card.
