SO, I have got - Dramatic budget for gaming Graphic card : 150$
CPU Intel Core i5-3570K overclocked to 4233 MHz
Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Motherboard

  1. you shouldnt have bought the i5 3570k if you are going to spend only 150 on a video card. not the best combo for gaming. what i would have gotten was a i5 3310 and a asus 7870.

    now you would have to get the 6870 instead

  2. I agree in the 6870, the 6870 will be something like 30-50% faster depending on what you are doing. I just picked an open box one up on E-Bay for 110 bucks, so if you are willing to go this route it would be a far better choice. Sometimes you can find rebates (like the one linked previously) that bring them down near your 150 price point.
  3. And If I will buy in far future one more Graphics card and add by crossfire with the card what i am going to buy at this moment, would you still recommend me to buy 6870?
  4. if you have the money, get something like a 7870 now. its better to have 1 powerful card than 2 weaker cards. if you dont have the money, get the 6870
  5. I 2nd the 7870... had it for a few weeks now and love it.
  6. OK, understood, thank you for advice, I think, I need more money and i will have much more power with 7870.
