  1. Looks good to me. GPU could always be a bit more powerful, but that depends on your budget.

    What games are you looking to play, and at which settings?

    Minecraft, guild wars, bf3 maybe some arma 2. I would like to play on the highest settings if possible. What would you suggest to do this?

    You won't get very smooth gameplay with a 7850 on a 1920x1080 resolution. Look at these benchmarks.

    BF3 will be playable on medium/high settings, but if want your game to run smoothly on ultra settings I would invest in something like a GTX 670 (if you have enough money, of course). Otherwise, that 7850 will be fine for running BF3 on reduced settings.

    Can you recommend a GTX 670? Also if I add that will my PSU be strong enough?

    EDIT: Woah nvm I found out that these things are 420$. That's 180$ more than my 7950. Is there an intermediate step between them?
