I wouldn't go with PowerColor as it usually runs a bit hotter than other brands. Spend a few more bucks an get Gigabyte, MSI, ASUS, or Sapphire. m 0 l djangoringo November 18, 2012 2:34:51 PM Scrap the cpu cooler you can't oc that cpu beside the stock cooler offers decent cooling for that type of cpu. I'd buy the 7850 1GB instead of the 7770 like this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... For 149.99$ with rebates and farcry 3 as offer. The psu that you chose has power for that. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
