And will it be able to play COD or L4D2 in high setting smoothly.

Im planning on overclocking the CPU (will need better cooling device), will it be capable? with the motherboard that im having.
And will the PSU be enough to crossfire the hd7770? and also will it be capable with this build?
Any suggestion on parts will be appreciate.
Thanks!

    Yes to all your questions.
    To offer suggestions we would need to know your budget and if Z-Com is the only site you can buy from.
  2. Z-Com, PbTech (RAM), and Trademe (Case) those are the big place that i can get the parts but z-com seems to be the cheapest.
    All of those comes to around $1,250 and im trying to keep it at $1,300ish.
  3. Use the pricespy.co.nz website to check prices .

    You need a 450 watt psu to run that rig as it is and only 550 watts if you crossfire the graphics cards [ just checked ... you cant run proper crossfire with that mb anyway anyway ]

    IMO buy an Antec 300 case , get a 500 watt psu and upgrade the graphics card to a 7850
    It might not look like it just beamed down to your room but it will game a LOT better

    I could drop the 750hx to 650hx for $60 cheaper and could upgrade to an 7850 2gb for another $20+$60 from the PSU downgrade. 650w would be plenty for my build right? + all the fans in the case and im gonna upgrade the CPU fan for OC too.

    and can't my mobo do crossfire? its state that it supports crossfire. but im not planning on doing it right away maybe in the future.
  5. Yes, it will @ 650W being enough. However, that mobo doesn't run at x8/x8, limited CF performance.
  6. follow the psu recommendation link I posted and you see that a 7850 will run well on a good quality 450 watt psu with a single 6 pin power connector

    In a big case a modular psu is questionable . Id save money there too if I was sure the case I was buying had good cable management .
    Having said that I have the older seasonic built HX 620 in my m-ATX computer and not having the cable clutter is a blessing

    You motherboards second pci-e x 16 slot runs at x4 speed . It can crossfire X but there will probably be a performance hit
  7. Would a single Power Color HD7850 2GB 860MHz/1200MHzX4 256bit be able to run most modern games at high setting smoothly?

    If the "bugs" are gone - then yes.

    How about this one

    -Asus GF GTX 560 DCII TOP PCI-E 2.0 1024MB DDR5 256-bit, 925/
    http://www.zcom.co.nz/product_info.php?cPath=14_63&products_id=11768

    Would it be better?
    or the 7850
  10. Don't forget to get a new CPU cooler if you overclock

    Here on this chart GPU's are listed in descending order, NVidia on the left - AMD on the right. You'll find the 7850 is one tier higher than the 560. The gtx 580 or the hd 7950 would each be one tier higher. It's a useful tool when picking a new GPU:
