Can this card run on my current config ?

Here is my current config
amd athlon II x3 445 cpu
asus m4n68t-m le v2 mobo
2x2gb ddr3 1333 RAM
320gb HDD
20 inch LED monitor
250w psu

I'm planning to buy and add HD 7850 and 600w corsair psu to my current pc..And after 9months will upgrade the rest of the components.(LOW budget )

So What i'm asking is will my current config is enough to handle hd 7850 or do i need to wait for few months and buy the whole new rig..

will 7850 GPU give more than 60fps on my 20 inch LED monitor for games like bf3,gta4,batman,mw3 etc..?

    You will be bottlenecked, but not hugely, i think it is a nice upgrade, and will work fine!



    how much fps will i get with my monitor,If you run BF3 or DIRT 3 ?

    I have 2 monitors 20 inch and 22 inch LED? which one should i go to get more fps and play smoothly ?
  2. Depends on their native resolutions. If they are both 1080p then either one will play the same. If one is a higher resolution then I would be using that one to game. FPS will be lower on the higher res monitor. You'll be fine, but use DX11 whenever possible.

    BF3 at ultra with no AA, i would guess in the region of 45-60fps.

    Dirt 3 will be a breeze on max settings.

    22 inch would be better....



    will 45fps gives smooth gameplay ?

    Then 20 inch gives more fps than 22 inch ?

    Well, you have to check your monitors, but they are probably both 1920x1080 (1080p). If that is true then use the 22", slightly larger display right? Always play at the native resolution of your monitor.

    Here is a relative benchmark for you on a different card:


    The game is smooth even at lower than 30fps... although i have no issues with that as you can see...








    Fine.

    Its GTX 480.is it better than 7850 or lesser ?
  7. Seems fine.So the Video gameplay running at 30fps ?

    The framerate is in the top left corner, and please do note, my card was running at 900mhz overclocked.

    Here is the 480 at stock clocks:









    Great Video..Seems gameplay at 40fps looks smoother.


    So,Is it worth buying 7850 and run atleast for 1 year..?
  9. Hey recon, how did you get the overlay for the temperature in the corner of the screen? Was it capturing by fraps or something? It would be nice to have something like that in-game.
  10. Ah, that's what I use. I'll have to look into it. Thanks!

    IMO...not for the price, but this is down to you.. the 480 is a power consuming sh^t, but it's price and performance outweigh this alot... so your choice.



    Thanks Mate.
