Hey guys, I am building my first ever budget gaming pc. Nothing really fancy, just looking to play modern games on low to med settings. I have a few concerns/questions but first let me show you what I am interested in.
for the $115 of your 550ti, I'd suggest the GTX 650 or HD 7770. if you want to push up a bit, HD7850s are running about $200 and GTX 660s are $230
i was pretty sure that the 550ti beat the 650 but i could be wrong
One final question guys. So I am going to follow TheBigTroll suggestion on getting the XFX 6870. I just wanted to know how to solve the issue that the XFX 6870 demands 2 6pin power connector while the power supply i am interested in only has one 6pin connector. Any solutions?
use the converter that will come with the 6870. nothing else uses molex 4-pins anymore anyway
or you could get the power supply i recommended. comes with 2.
