Hey guys, I need help with a new gaming build. I have $1350 to spend, I want it to run most, if not all games on at least medium settings. It would be a lot easier for me if you use Scorptec.com.au or pccasegear.com seeing as they are local for me.
Sorry, didn't read the pinned post.
Approximate Purchase Date: Soon.
Budget Range: $1350
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Hd movies. Surfing the web.
Are you buying a monitor: No
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: scorptec.com.au , Pccasegear.com
Location: Australia, Melbourne
Parts Preferences: I want to stick to Intel, I do not mind about other stuff.
SLI or Crossfire: I would like to, if it's in my price range.
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: I would really like the NZXT Phantom 410 case, or something similar.
I would stick with PC Case Gear. They tend to have the cheapest prices and most items and my experience with them has been great so far.
Each side releases bad drivers every now and then, its just myth that AMD/ATI drivers are less reliable than Nvidia.
The main competition to the HD7950 is the 660Ti. The 7950 performs better overall and at higher resolutions than the 660Ti, but it doesn't perform as well in some popular games. They are both about equal (if you don't factor in overclocking, which is easy on the 7950 and very limited on the 660Ti).
