Two things im not to sure on are the GPU and the PSU. Will the GPU first of all fit the mobo due to the card being 2.1 PCIe and the mobo being 2.0 PCIe and is it a decent GPU cause there is an unbelievable amount of options like whether to choose 1GB GDDR3 or 512MB GDDR5 and whether i'll really even need one as i will probably not be playing a lot of games will mainly be for 1080p movies. The PSU i was advised i needed one greater than 600w but in my opinion i think is a bit much, will i really need over 600w.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance
i only linked to newegg for easy im actually from the uk. i heard that with the mobo it can unlock the hidden fourth core on the x3 455 so it is effectively a quad core. thanks for the advice on graphics
What games you play? Cuz a 4850 can play a lot of games on highest resolution and highest settings and with your rig every game you will proably get 60 fps or more. a 5570 is weak a 4850 will do the job. What is your monitor size?
I ran crysis 2 on my 9500 gt which sucks compared to my 5770 but yeah tht system could nuke crysis 2 and battle field the 4850 is my past card but my mobo fried it no need to worry it was my fault because the card touched the south bridge heatsink. But that MOBO won't have the same problem as I did by looking at it that card will be awesome and play all your games on highest settings and resolution. But wait this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is much better and the same price! The 260 is a good card and play everything better than the 4850.
is there difference in the make of the graphics cards cause there does seem to be a bit of variation in price for what looks to be the same card. sapphire cards tend to be the cheapest is there a reason why?
