hi all

im building a new rig and i need to know what graphics card (preferably 1gb dedicated + ) will go with 'Asus M4A87TD EVO 870 ' motherboard and a 'amd phenom ii X6 1100T' processor i will have a 750 W power supply so not too fussed about power requirements.

thanks all

What is your budget?

Do you really need the 1100T? Unless your doing a lot of tasks that warrant it I would suggest saving your money for a bulldozer CPU and get a cheap CPU for now.

You should be able to pick whatever card you want according to your budget , just be aware that the second pci-e slot is only x4 and if you have intentions of SLI/Crossfire in the future then you will be restricted by that slot on performance.

PowerColor AX6870X2 2GBD5-2DHG Radeon HD 6870 x2 2GB 2 X 256bit (256bit) GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

I am only using this card as an example since I don't know what your budget might be but this card is essentially two cards in one , it has two gpu's and would be a solution to the MB you chose. Otherwise you should choose a MB with two x16 slots that work at least in x8 mode so you would get the full benefit of the two seperate cards in either SLI or Crossfire.

No your not limited you can choose either but if you decide to go with Nvidia you will not be able to SLI.

Why a 4670? That card is very outdated.

For your budget I would suggest getting the 6770.It's a great card and fits your budget nicely.
