Need help with CPU/MOBO/GPU Tags: New Build GPUs CPUs Systems Product Last response: May 2, 2011 2:54 PM in Systems Share VisceralBowl May 2, 2011 4:02:02 AM I plan on making this purchase in the next 3 days. Alright I currently have : CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 830 @ 2.80 GHz MOBO: AMD 785G And I want to get this: GPU: MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... All other components are taken care of. My question is. Are these parts compatible? Also, is this a good enough setup for gaming? Current Card: ATI HD 4200 More about : cpu mobo gpu mdd1963 a b à CPUs May 2, 2011 4:30:05 AM the 5770 is a bit weak for some games (Crysis) at some resolutions, IMO; I'd try hard to find funding for either the 5850/6850 or GTX460(1gb) I'd also review benchmarks showing the inexpensive i3/2100 outframing pretty much all x3/x4/X6 cpus in games, save for those clocked perhaps 800-900 Mhz higher than the i3... VisceralBowl May 2, 2011 2:00:11 PM Would I be okay though if I overclock my CPU and get the HD5850? he most demanding game I plan on playing is Crysis Warhead and Crysis 2.
