I'd still go the 7870 though, best bang for your buck and it's many times more powerful then the both consoles combined. babi2 September 23, 2012 12:47:43 AM Nice. So I will be able to play the games in 1080 and moderate settings? Someone told me that since my screen is 42 in I would need like a 400$ graphics card. What do you think? Also any comments of the builds are appreciated! its just a cheap desktop.
