What CPU+GPU gives me a better gaming experience?

Hello,

I im planning to buy an new pc this month I have H61 Motherboard and an 20" monitor 1680 x 1050.

My choices are G850 + 2gb Powercolor HD 7850 and i3-3220 + Sapphire 1gb HD 7770.

I usually play single player games like far cry 3, hitman absolution, dmc 5 , etc. i dont like streaming.

why 2gb powercolor 7850?? because in my country its the only video card that i think is good and available near me. the 2gb sapphire 7850 and 2g powercolor 7850
their price is very different if i convert our money to dollars here Sapphire is about $212 while powercolor is only $167.

I have very limited budget and these two setup is only my choices.

Please tell me what cpu+gpu gives me better gaming experience based on my choices and my needs.

If i choose g850+ hd 7850 is there will be a bottleneck issue?

I really needed advice.

Thanks.

  1. This is hard to say. In skyrim, for example, you would see better performance with the i3/7770. In other games you may see better performance with the pentium/7850. Any chance you can get the i3/7850 by changing around the rest of the build? If I was you I would take the i3 and 7770, which will still perform well at your resolution if you don't expect to use much aa.
  2. At your resolution, the i3 combo seems the better bet. As a FYI, you can almost certainly get a used GTX460 for about half the price of a (slower) 7770 if you're patient enough.
  3. thanks. but g850 + hd 7850 really tempted me because my plan is i'm gonna upgrade to an i5 quadcore 1-2 years after i buy this rig i will get a better mobo to crossfire my hd 7850 with another hd 7850. my first pc build was really disappointing i dont want to happen it again. But if you think i3+7770 is the best for me now maybe i should go with i3 combo and upgrade later. i dont want to regret this for now i will wait for another advice.
  4. I would suggest against doing that. You are going to be wasting a lot of money if you buy a new mobo/cpu in a year. You should save up for a little while longer and buy what you really want to get.
  5. do you think g850+hd 7770 + z77 mobo will do my future plan?? i manage to lower cpu and gpu to buy a z77 mobo. after 1-2 years im gonna replace my cpu to i5k proccessor and crossfire with another hd 7770 then i will put my old cpu to my mother's pc. do you think that's a good idea?
  6. I would go with g850+gtx 650ti or hd 7850.in single player it will not bottleneck at all.

    The 7850 has close to twice the fps in games and takes similar power I believe just slightly more because it is 256bit meaning double bandwidth at low clock speed. Lastly I would if I was you get the 7850 and try and get an i5 3450/3350 or something. The g850 with a 7850 on most new games, an i5 quad with 6850 will trounce a g850 with 7850. Heck the 7770 with an i5 quad would most likely get better framerates. To put into perspective how slow a g850 is, I have an acer m3 with the slowest mobile i5 ulv 17w and it beats the pentium g850 by over 20% and my cpu just about is enough on most games with a 640m gpu. Heck if you get a g850 most likely you will get worse fps then my 640m over your 7850 desktop as your cpu will only let the gpu load be like 40% at best.

    Overall try and get an i5 quad with 7850.

    g850 with gpu at 40%! no way it will not bottleneck so worse.Most of the games it will not bottleneck at all.
  8. I would suggsest a intel i5 or i7 depending on price range... if so amd could be the way to go.... if amd i would suggest getting a stronger graphics card suign the money that you saved buying the cheaper processor. Possibly geforce 550ti 2gb or a 660 ti 2gb ... 175 - 280 dollar range.. good luck!

    I really loved to get and i5 quad but as i said i have a limited budget so i can't afford it right now.
    Even 40+ FPS i get with G850 + 7850 as long as it still playable with most modern game then it's ok with me. I see a lot of gamer building there budget pc with g850 + hd 7850 and most of them they recommend it. but i need to be sure if there will be a bottleneck issue. ASHISH65 said it will not bottleneck at all. I dont know maybe i go with g850 + hd 7850. I just want to replace cpu instead of gpu for future upgrade. :pt1cable:
  10. How much for an FX4300 AMD chip over there? It could be a better option in your case.
  11. The gtx 660 will be good and later will match with the i5
