Closed Replace 9800GX2 with HD7770 Tags: Graphics Cards Power Graphics Product Last response: July 9, 2012 3:03 PM in Graphics & Displays Share nocteratus July 9, 2012 1:28:13 AM Hi all, I want to replace my 9800GX2, I was thinking maybe with a HD7770. What do you guys think? I don't need more power since I mostly play old games (Starcraft 1, Diablo 1&2, The sims 3, Civ 3, ...) and the 9800GX2 has enough power. The pros I see is the lower power consumption, newer tech, low price (about $120) and the possibility of adding another one if I need more power since I have a crossfire motherboard. The specs of my systems: MB: GA-X38-DS4 CPU: Q6600 oc'ed to 3.0Ghz MEM: 8GB OS: W7 HP CASE: CM690 with all fans COOLING: Ultra 120 with AS Ceramique PSU: PC power & cooling silencer 750 quad (red) I have a 32'' 720P HDTV and a 17'' 1280*1024 monitor and I might upgrade to a 40'' 1080P HDTV.

Just try to get the hd7770 Ghz edition. Sapphire makes good ones. amuffin a c 109 U Graphics card July 9, 2012 1:41:10 AM It wouldn't be worth the extra money.
