Budget Build Help - $500 Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: August 19, 2012 10:54 PM in Systems Share InArtifex August 19, 2012 10:42:27 PM Which is best? EVGA 01G-P3-1466-KR GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) DS SSC 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... OR EVGA 02G-P3-1559-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'm struggling between 2GB on the 550 Ti and 256-bit on the 560. Also, if there is a better graphics card for $150 after-rebate that would be better then please mention it. I plan to pair it with a: ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... For now, I have a crappy Logysis 450W PSU. As long as I can power the GPU, either the 550Ti or the 560 with 450W? After, In a little while I'll get a: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Any recommendations I am highly open to. I'm at a $500 Budget build. Mainly for gaming: BF3, Max Payne 3, Witcher 2 etc. on High to Ultra. If you can come up with your own build I am looking forward to it!
