Hi,

I have 46 inch CX520 Series Full HD BRAVIA LCD TV and want to buy a VGA Card and PSU for this build

Spec:-
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E7200
GA-EP35-DS3L
4GB Ram Kingston

My budget is around 140$.Will it be okay for gaming on TV with this build, does it require High end bulid or this will do the job? I am not a hardcore gamer but I just need to run most of games with good performance (Textures and FPS ) on my TV ,So what are my best choices with that ?!


Thanks,,

Well, do you need a power supply now? Or does your current computer already have one? Because if it does, chances are your computer does not need one, as you could just get a card that runs on that power supply.

Well, you can go for a basic power supply, like so:

And then use the other money to get a video card:

Screen size doesn't have any effect on the performance - resolution does. And Full HD is pretty much a norm for gaming today, so it will do fine. It will play most games on high settings, but on really demanding ones you'll have to drop to medium (like Battlefield 3).

One last thing: Do you know good articles so I can read more about relation between screen size,resolution and required gear/spec?

None that I can immediately think of, but just think of it in terms of cars.

A Chevy Suburban with the 6.2L V8 is pretty slow because of the weight, but you stick that V8 into a Corvette, and you have a really fast car.

That's kinda how resolution and graphics cards go together. The higher the resolution, the more pixels the card has to drive. The more powerful the card, the easier it is.

The 7770 should be nice for 1080P.

It's a great model, but newegg has it overpriced. If where you buy it it's cheaper - go for it - it's a great card.

I hope its not at that price, because that's way way too much for a 7770. But that is a good version.
