  2. I honestly don't think there's anything I would change about that build but if you want a GPU suggestion I'd highly recommend the Radeon 7850 which is out on Tuesday: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1&gid=3&sgid=1160&pid=1472&psn=&lid=1&leg=0
  3. ^+1

    The 7850 would probably be a better choice.
  4. It looks like Newegg has:

    Both of which are out of stock currently.

    Thanks for your reply.
  6. They were their yesterday, but I'm going to give it a guess they won't reach launch volume until next week. So yeah. Worth the wait though, better power consumption, efficiency, temps, higher overclocks, better overall performance.

    They have the 7870s as well. Are they not worth it?
  8. Worth it if you need it. Definitely a great card but if you don't plan on doing crazy heavy gaming the 7850 is more than fine.
  9. They worth, are better then Nvidia 580 in a lot of games and can be overclock verry good.
