Hi, i'm getting a budget gaming rig built and I was wondering which of these to get, I've compared benchmarks and specs, however I still can't decide. If I get the 6850 then I can afford some better ram with the money I save (£22.50)
GTX 560 would be faster. I think you better get that, because in my opinion the get the best you can get. But, if you can get a better RAM by buying the 6850, what RAM is that? and what RAM are you getting when not buying the 6850?
I think i'm going to take your advice and choose the 560, however I also want to ask another question, which of these systems do you think I should go for?
CPU: i5 2500 (3.3GHz x 4) with standard cooler
GPU: Zotac GTX 560
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V LX
RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
Storage: 1TB S-ATAIII 6.0Gb/s
CPU: i5 2400 (stock heatsink/fan)
RAM: 4gb corsair vengeance 1600MHz
everything else is the same as Option 1
thanks for all the advice and suggestions guys, I have a pretty good case which comes with 4 120mm fans as standard (1 on the side, 1 on the front, 1 on at the back and 1 on the top) so I'm hopefully going to be doing some GPU overclocking, any advice on that?
