BF3 ultra - ~50-60 fps
Crysis 2 ultra - ~65 fps
MW3 Ultra - >90fps

Any other games you'd like for me to check?

That PSU is a little suspect. Checking on Newegg, it seems to have a 15-20% failure rate, especially when the system is pushed closer to load.

First, no one can tell you without knowing your resolution. The above numbers are to high for 1080p. But you can just go read game and gpu reviews instead of asking here. you should be able to play on ultra above 30 fps on pretty much anything, which is plenty.

2ND raidmax makes junk and if at all possible you should return it and get a decent PSU.

Have you already bought the parts? I would advise a different power supply. If you have the parts already, its probably not worth the hassle.

Rest looks good. The frames listed above would be pretty accurate.

A good power supply would be an Antec, Seasonic, or Corsair unit. XFX also makes good units.

is Rosewill any good like the one i posted above

The best "cheap" power supply is the Antec VP-450W. It'll run your GPU, and is only $35. Rosewill makes bad PSUs. If you feel you need the extra wattage, the XFX 550W is a really good pick.

The frame rates I put up range from resolutions of 1600x900 to full 1080p, I got them from actual people uploading videos of ultra gameplay at ~60 fps. I think only one of them wasn't 1080p, but either way, they're really good framerates.

Oh, right, I had seen Rosewill at the bottom and assumed that they were bad quality power supplies, lol. It's funny, I've been referring to that link for a while now, and never noticed before.

Although taking account the price of the Hive 550W, the XFX seems a much better deal, considering it's also Seasonic made.

The Rosewill one is alright as well. I don't think they make entirely bad PSU's. Some of them are top of the line.

That's a chart showing power supply qualities in terms of tiers.

Thanks For the link!!

one more question
If i want to crossfire another 7850 in the future will i need another psu?? or do I even need another 7850 if i wana run 3 monitors??
November 6, 2012 12:23:30 AM

If you crossfire, 750W would be ideal. You won't need to crossfire for 3 monitors, though; even an A10 APU could run 3 monitors, I believe.
