I am gonna get a new PC soon, i will use it mostly for gaming. This is what i've come up with:
Sapphire Radeon HD6870
Kingston Genesis Grey 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
I already have the dvd and hdd
Do you think it will be good enough for modern games on high? Or maybe i should put in a slower cpu and get hd 6950? To get this gpu i'd have to get an i3 2100, and, well, i'm not really happy about it...
Oh... I forgot to count in the case price... This is way over my budget... Now i gotta chose one of these 2 cpu+gpu combos:
1. i3 2100+HD6879
2. i5 2500k+HD6770
Which one will perform better in games? Btw. I will be changing components in any of these 2 Pcs ( the cpu in the 1st one, the gpu in the 2nd one ) in a year, but for now, the i3 Pc seems like a better choice.
I got my old hitachi 160gb ( i know it sux, but the prices are insane ) and a cooler master vortex + ( just to be safe ) and i am extremely pleased with it. It's a huge improvement over my old athlon 64 x2 5k+ & 9600gso.
