Is this a good idea to switch to Radeon HD 6850 to save a few buck? Is my PSU good enough for later overclocking?
Also if you come across some good monitor around 24 inches, please let me know. Thanks a lot.
Thanks for the fast reply.
I have a couple more questions. So im just playing game primary ( such as crisis 2, ME3, Tera online and couple other), watching movies ( online / offline), some of microsoft office processing, a couple programs . I also did some research around CPU i5 and AMD phenom II x4 965. i5 would beat phenom II anyday, but i see lot of recommendations for getting AMD since they have " almost" the same performance, cheaper price in which im pretty interested in at the moment. Should i change to AMD CPU and go with radeon 6850, 6870 instead? How much faster/ better in comparing between i5 turbo boost and a normal phenom II?
How far would i need to overclock AMD phenom x4 to match up i5 turbo boost? Other than AMD phenom II, which CPu can almost match up with an i5? To overclock, do i need to get an additional thermal meter for CPU and for other part ( such as RAM and GPU) as well? Sorry for so many questions, im still a noob.
ALso thanks for the recommendation on switching MO and PSU , cause i dont really want to use dual monitor anyway.
