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?

Currently, wouldnt expect even medium settings.
Need a graphics card if you want to game.

Would expect high-ish settings with acceptable FPS with intensive games.

Read some reviews, that will answer your question best.

Dont forget to overclock the 7850. The 7800 series are great overclockers.

That will play most games on ultra and a few would be on high. Also look at the 660. It might be worth it.

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).

I can't tell a difference, I would go with the cheaper one.
