I was going to mention a possible bottleneck with your CPU but at your resolution, it shouldn't cause any noticeable performance decreases (if any). ASUS always have great cards http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... PSU possibility http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Score 0 baytisoy88 July 26, 2012 1:00:05 AM oki finally i concluded sirs that ill buy the sapphire 7850 and the cx 600 corsair psu..and also sir will my current mobo and cpu connectors or sockets be compatible to my planned vcard and psu? Score 0 spagalicious a b U Graphics card July 26, 2012 3:58:51 AM Though your mobo only has pci-e 16x, pci-e 2.0 and pci-e 3.0 cards are all backwards compatible. Should be a substantial upgrade. Just a sidenote: not sure if you have but make sure your case has sufficient space for a modern graphics card and a non generic psu. (you may have checked. just thought i'd add it in) Score 0 Deemo13 a c 191 U Graphics card July 26, 2012 7:23:21 AM Straightforward: Don't do it. Not-straightforward: The computer is pretty slow as it is, and I wouldnt trust the new card on that power supply. Score 0 baytisoy88 July 27, 2012 9:21:32 AM dont do what sir? Score 0 Best solution simon12 a b U Graphics card July 27, 2012 10:22:32 AM As already stated it will work fine with the upgraded power supply but your CPU will seriously hold it back especially at that resolution. Unless you plan on upgrading the CPU I suggest you look at a 6850 not a 7850. Share baytisoy88 July 27, 2012 3:00:29 PM Best answer selected by baytisoy88.
