Perhaps drop to 4GB RAM and get a ~400W PSU and change to the HD 7770. That will give you slightly better performance and lower power consumption. fpoon May 14, 2012 1:07:50 AM Do you need a Hard Drive? Case? Anything else? I'm building a mATX build myself for my cousin, but his budget is around $800. What's your budget?

Get the answer MrOrigon May 14, 2012 1:10:02 AM What about a 6850? fpoon May 14, 2012 1:23:31 AM The 6850 should be good for 1080P gaming. jmsellars1 a b 4 Gaming May 14, 2012 1:28:38 AM Yeah the HD 6850 is slightly better than the HD 7770, I'd go for 450W+ though because the power consumption is a tad higher. MrOrigon May 14, 2012 1:43:45 AM So could I get by with a 450W? Name brand with 80+ of course jmsellars1 a b 4 Gaming May 14, 2012 1:56:19 AM Yeah that should be fine for something like the HD 6850 with an i3. The Corsair CX-430 or a Seasonic 430W unit perhaps. The XFX Core 450W is good too. MrOrigon June 8, 2012 2:45:49 AM Best answer selected by MrOrigon. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
