Hi again guys

I would like again ur help.

I decided my build and ordered some parts have them here looking at them D:

I currently have

I3-2100
Haf 912 Plus
G.Skill 2x2Gb 1600Mhz
Asrock H61-M GE

I have to order the

Xfx 550 W Pro

And the Gpu which should be one of this mentioned up there

Hd 6770 Here is the link which shows them by price

Gtx 460 1Gb

Hd 6850

http://www.heise.de/preisvergleich/?cat=gra16_512&sort=p&bpmax=&asuch=hd+6850&asd=on&v=e&plz=&dist=&xf=

If i chose lets say 6770 i can use the saved money to get a better power supply like the xfx750 Pro Core.

My resolution is 1280x1024 and i plan upgrading it to a 1080p monitor 1920x1080.

Thank you in advance :) !

  1. Your 550W PSU is more than enough even for more powerfull PC's.
  2. @sosofm

    I know that is enough for this build but lets say that i will do SLI/CF in future and its better to buy a higher wattage Psu now ?

    Also there is another option

    I can find the CX430 V2 for 35 euro .

    Is it fine with this setup so i can save some money ?to get lets say the GTX 560 TI ?

    Edit :

    Or to get a better mobo ?
  3. 6850 hands down the winner and that 550watt is plenty.
  4. I believe the 460 is the strongest of the 3, a 6770 isn't TOO much more powerful than the 5770, I don't know the price difference, but you might save a few bucks for similar performance.

    If you can afford it I would say a 560ti would suit your build very well at 1920x1080. That's just my opinion, though.

    Otherwise, a 6850 is on par or better than a 460 in some scenarios, based on reviews from TH. 6850 has a lower TDP at load, but slightly more at idle.

    I'm running a 955 BE OC'd to 3.8 currently and my gtx 460 I run at stock unless I game, and I just enable my OC profile to 905 core, 1900 mem. Shader is locked with Core on afterburner. This is on an antec 550w PSU.

    If you go with a cheaper card, get yourself 8gb of ram, maybe?

    6850 is a better card for applying higher levels of aa/af and eye candy and res otherwise at 720p 460 and 6850 are the same but 6850 runs cooler and takes only one 6pin power and cost less than 460. 6850 is the winner by a good little margin.

    Thank you for the reply

    @aaronstyle

    The 560Ti from gigabyte which is the cheapest i could find is staying at 185 Euros while the HD 6870 with nearly the same performance is 138 Euros.

    I wanted to get a 960T but i changed my mind to the I3-2100 because of the upgrade path.

    I dont think i would need all that ram but if i choose the Cx 430 V2 and the HD 6850 i can replace the RAM.

    Idk im not sure

    Nice links but i cant buy from newegg :(

    I buying from vv computer mix or mindfactory those are german companies.

    http://www.heise.de/preisvergleich/

    Here i can compare prices (its like pcpartpicker)
    Considering that those are in euros and price are different so i need to refer to this prices not to USD one's . :)

    Well those parts I linked are the lowest priced high performance gaming parts on the market and that doesn't change no matter what part of the globe however I understand availability might be a problem for you but I think Amazon ships world wide you could check them out.
  10. Y amazon does ship here but keep in mind the shipping costs i can order here for free shipping .

    Also i just looked up some feedback on newegg for the CX 430 V2 and LOT's of people says it is whinning so no way im getting it now .

    The xfx 550 is the way to go.

    Also i think im choosing the HD 6850.

    1 question :

    Does the HD 6770 Max out everything at 1280x1024 ?

    Ahh, thanks for clarifying. There's a reason why I said I "believe" one is better than the other. If you buy MSI's GTX 460 twin frozr series, you're card will run ~50-60C If MSI makes a 6850, it would probably run cooler, you'll probably pay a little more of a premium, but Twin frozr cards look really sharp, have high quality components, and are among the best cooling systems out there, imo. Some people prefer blowers, though. 6850 wont let you down, and as gamerdude said, the 6850 will work better with AA/AF. (after a little bit of googling)

    did you make sure to buy an aftermarket cooler for your cpu? (you wont be able to OC much without an unlocked CPU) however, keeping your temps down will give you some longevity, as long as you don't mess it up.

    Either way you go, you wont be disappointed. Why not save a few bucks, and go with the 6850, it'll be better for your electrical bill in the long run.

    Edit: I'm pretty sure the 560ti is somewhat faster than the 6870, a gtx560 (non ti) is probably more equivalent.

    It would depend on the game, a CPU bound game like skyrim, it probably could. Something that's really graphic intensive, maybe, with lowered AA or AF. Don't hold me accountable for that statement, though. The 6770 is a solid mid range card. Since you're going with an intel CPU, you're going to be on par with many of AMD's quad, and six core CPU counterparts.

    The bill its a good idea :D

    The sapphire Hd 6850 had some cool reviews (it google it and found tons of PRO review's)

    I foudn one that went up to 1GHZ core clock :D but i wont go that high.

    Im on i3 2100 so i can't OC it and the card wont need OC till i get the new monitor :)

    Thank you both :)

    Nvm im going with HD 6850 (it will be more future proof than HD 6770 )

    And im staying with 4 GB ram from Corsair vengeance low profile (or G.Skill not sure)

    The XFX 550watt pro is the way to good if you dont mind paying a bit more for it they are the best quality built by Seasonic PSU top of the pile units. http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page625.htm

    The 6850 is far far better than the 5770/6770 when you crank up the IQ settings and AA/AF to the max @ 1080p the 6850 will be smooth whereas the 6770 will be all choppy and unplayable that's the difference but at low res 720p they will both do a great job but the 6850 will be better all around. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bsjabpq4dFE

    Both are great companies, I'm happy with my g skill sniper low voltage. But corsair makes some excellent ram, too. (get a 1600mhz or higher kit) then you can oc it with a simple bios tweak.

    The fancy heat sinks are all show and no go as in they do nothing cause the ram never get hot and you just end up paying more for the fancy designer ram but it the same thing and performance as generic ram the difference is saved money.
