  1. It would be best if you can get a 6870.

    Drop to 8gb of ram. Since games only at most right now is 4gb, 8gb is just for future proofing.

    Your power supply is overkill. You can even get a 430w and have no problems but I would get a 500w
  2. OK tyvm for all of your advice and if you don't mind me asking whats a 6870.
  3. AMD 6870? It's a graphics card. :O
  4. 550W Powercool, Modular, 80 PLUS, 80% Eff', SLI/CrossFire, EPS 12V, Fan Cooling, Dual Rail, ATX 2.2,

    1GB XFX HD6870 DDR5 Dual DVI 2x Mini DP PCI-E Graphics Card

    8GB (4x2GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Jet Black, PC3-12800 (1600), Non-ECC, CAS 9-9-9-24, XMP, 1.5V, X79, Z68 & P67

    r these ok
  5. I'd go for a corsair 600W PSU (even the non modular ones are good too, not to mention cheaper than the modular ones)

    +1 on the 6870, good bang for the buck

    8Gb of ram is good, and the sandy bridge i5 overclocks very well.

    don't forget to invest in a good case too, and a heatsink if you're going into overclocking
  6. Naw 500w for the 6870 is enough.

    I agree with that ^^

    I just like him to have some room for crossfire maybe?

  9. Is a goodie.
  10. Got any recommendations for a monitor
  11. With your budget, any cheap 1920 x 1080p monitor or a 1600 x 900 would be best.
  12. If it says "AMD 6870 or 6870 Radeon" that is the card. Just wondering though guys whats wrong with the GTX 460? Oh and if you want to crossfire, get a bigger PSU. Doesn't sound like you will though.

    Yup that's a 6870. That is a great budget gaming card. If you want the GTX 460 there isn't a problem with it.
