Cheap gaming build: G860/i3-2100 & HD 7750/7770 Tags: Build Gaming HD Radeon Systems Last response: August 12, 2012 11:24 PM in Systems Share plekter August 12, 2012 8:03:13 PM Building a cheap light gaming build for my son and was wondering how well the new value class Radeon 7xxx series cards work with i3 sandy bridge or G860 processors. Current thoughts: MSI B75A-G43 Pentium G860 / i3-2100 2x 2GB Kingston HyperX blu Radeon HD 7750 / Radeon HD 7770 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 Everything else will be stuff that I have right now. What are your thoughts on the setup?

Just to put that into perspective with older parts, the Pentium/HD 7770 would be similar to a Phenom II 955 and GTX 460 1GB or something. plekter August 12, 2012 11:11:14 PM Thanks. Thats what I'm thinking too. The processors look quite similar when looking at the specs and the G860 is 40€ cheaper.
