Solved How well will my setup run games? Tags: Homebuilt Games Systems Last response: October 5, 2012 4:38 AM in Systems Share valiantwolf October 5, 2012 2:34:20 AM I'm wondering how well my setup will runs games on high/ultra settings. The specs are: Sapphire radeon 7850 graphics Corsair tx650w psu Intel core i5 3750 cpu, overclocked at 4.00 ghz Asrock z77 extreme mobo Team Xtreem Dark Series 8GB (Probably going to upgrade to gskill ripjaw 8gigs) 1080p monitor So, how well will I hold up on higher-end games with high/ultra settings?

Check some benchmarks and see which one you think is worth getting. I feel like those are the three cards that are most worth getting between 200 and 400. | Report abuse manofchalk Homebuilt system Master October 5, 2012 3:49:27 AM Currently, wouldnt expect even medium settings. Need a graphics card if you want to game. | Report abuse valiantwolf October 5, 2012 3:56:52 AM To think that's the one item i've been thinking about the most lately, i'm stupid. I'm getting a sapphire radeon 7850. | Report abuse Related ressources How well will I run BF3 With this setup ? - Forum How well would this setup play games ? - Forum How well would this setup play games such as DayZ? - Forum How well would this run games like SW:TOR and WoW? - Forum How well can my computer run games ? - Forum Ask the community Publish Best solution manofchalk Homebuilt system Master October 5, 2012 4:03:18 AM Would expect high-ish settings with acceptable FPS with intensive games.

Dont forget to overclock the 7850. The 7800 series are great overclockers. | Report abuse lt_dan_zsu Homebuilt system Expert October 5, 2012 4:05:27 AM That will play most games on ultra and a few would be on high. Also look at the 660. It might be worth it. | Report abuse computernoob29 October 5, 2012 4:15:35 AM What games will you be playing? | Report abuse valiantwolf October 5, 2012 4:18:36 AM It looks like the 7850 is great for me, but now I have one other question. I've been looking at these 2 cards, but i'm not sure what the differences are. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I was planning to get the first one, but the 2nd one has muchhh better reviews, what's the difference between them? | Report abuse manofchalk Homebuilt system Master October 5, 2012 4:28:23 AM There should be no difference. Same GPU, same amount of VRAM, same memory bus, and as far as I can tell the same clocks. Only real difference I can see. The cheaper one has two DVI ports, one HDMI and one Displayport output. The more expensive one has two mini-Displayport, one HDMI and one DVI. Would go for the cheaper one, more useful display outputs (Displayport is the best, but only high end monitors support it). | Report abuse lt_dan_zsu Homebuilt system Expert October 5, 2012 4:30:51 AM I can't tell a difference, I would go with the cheaper one. | Report abuse valiantwolf October 5, 2012 4:37:52 AM Alright, thanks a lot guys. | Report abuse valiantwolf October 5, 2012 4:38:14 AM Best answer selected by ValiantWolf. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>How well will my setup run games?> Related ressources: ForumHow well can I run Battlefield 3?
