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

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.

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.

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.

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:

LOGISYS Computer PS575XBK 575W ATX12V SLI Ready Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
MSI N460GTX -M2D1GD5/OC GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
-------------------------
+ $30 rebate - gfx card
-------------------------
$202.97 shipped


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

And is the GTX460 much better than the HD6850?

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)

Go with the HD 6850/5850 and GTX 460. The HD 5770 is such a terrible card for the price.
February 21, 2011 5:35:01 PM

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.

of course..

What would it exactly give? :D 
February 21, 2011 6:13:05 PM

And if the HD6850 has a PCI-EX 2.1, but i have 2.0, is that a problem?
February 22, 2011 11:25:12 AM

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
February 22, 2011 12:30:17 PM

wait a second what resolution are you using?what about a gts 450?
February 22, 2011 5:51:05 PM

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)
February 22, 2011 6:14:18 PM

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?

you should invest a few more dollars and get the GTX560Ti


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

HD6870 is lots better than the HD6850 that's why everyone wants to flash it to one...

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

A GTX 460 1GB is a really impressive card.
