You don't have any hyperlinks to the items in question, and only some of the details about each, most are missing a model number and the price you are paying for them. I have no idea which video card you picked out, for example.

It looks great, everything fits. You've done good research.
Though if you can stretch your budget just a little more, a 7850 would be a good investment.

I've seen this card run on ultra settings on crysis 2 and that was just the 1gb version, so i think this card could possibly better then the 7850 because it doesn't have the new archetectuter and stuff.

The 7770? No sir.

I was referring to the "7770 possibly be better than the 7850". :p 

I guess it's possible to run some ultra settings on the 7770 depending on monitor resolution; but it's in no way gonna be better than a mid-range card.

well i have seen it run crysis 2 on ultra at 1080p with smooth frames so?

This was taken before Feb 2012, so some catalyst releases may have given the card a performance boost.
Nonetheless, I already said it may run some ultra depending on monitor resolution. Stop trying to start something.

Whoa dude im not trying to start something im just stateing the facts but what i think is the new drivers gave them a performance boost and thats how they get such high fps on ultra settings.

also can you show me the benchmarks of the 2gb version so i can see the how much more fpsc i can get?

Oh, don't mind VRAM. It only ever matters when you are using more than 1 monitor.
Getting 2+gb of VRAM for a single monitor won't really help on fps.
