- hd7850 >??? will this work fine with blizzard games?

-Haven't picked a PSU yet, looking for a 500w one that is quality and fits well in the case.


Is this build compatible?

I'm building this computer for gaming and web browsing only. Specifically Diablo3/WoW/maybe a few other titles, probably won't be playing games like crysis2 etc. However the option to play more demanding games would be nice.

    I'm usually more of an nVidia fan, but it's hard to pass up on that 7850. The i3-2120 should be fine for gaming and won't bottleneck the 7850, but if you feel that you need more power you can get an i5-2500k for about $75 more good luck!
  2. Was looking for advice/changes on the build i posted but thankyou for your input.

    oh my bad well your bundle link is not working and as far as a psu goes seasonic is the best
  4. For $6 more, he can get a Caviar Blue 500GB, which is much more reliable.
  5. Will that mobo and processor work well with an hd7850? Should I just get an i3?
  6. You could.
