Serious help please!

  3. you not get that PSU!
    your system, when overclocked, will run under 325 watts when gaming.

  4. ok ive gone with the £35 one, will it run games good?
  5. running a game is dependant on the graphics card and cpu. with what you have it will do well @ 1920x1080.
    the PSU will just be enough to overclock the i5-2500K.
  6. awesome, can i go for a cheaper motherboard and still be able to overclock it?
  7. look at this one:
    MSI Z77A-G45 £76.52 Inc VAT
    and you can go for a panther point chipset (sandy bridge)
    MSI Z68A-G43 (G3) £66.82 Inc VAT
  8. but my GPU is gddr5?
  9. doesn't matter; the cpu uses the motherboard memory and the gpu uses the memory on the card.
  10. ok would it run 1080 monitor on ultra settings?
  11. a 7850 is a higher mid range card. depending on the game some ultra but mostly high/med details to keep it around 45+ FPS.
