hello all

iam back once again with a question and hoping your guys can give me a hand. I did ask a question based on this a few weeks back but ran into some problems. I was told that a 6850 would be a suitable option as a graphics card for this system but ive LITERALLY looked every where and all 3 of my suppliers have no stock at all, only 7*** series. Ive got a supplier who can give me a MSI 7850 Power Edition at a really good price

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 9505 @ 3.2ghz (2.83ghz stock)
RAM: Corsair XMS2 DHX 800mhz 4GB (2GBx2)
MOBO: Gigabyte EP45-UD3L
PSU: Coolermaster 550watt Extreme (Will be replacing this with an Antec Earthwatts 550W platinum)

Best solution

There shouldn't be a bottleneck, that is one of the best core 2's out there.

I hope you realize that the link to the article, that @DjScribbles posted, refers to the GeForce GTX 660 Ti and GeForce GTX 670 Power Edition cards only.

It doesn't apply to the Radeon HD 7000 Series Power Edition cards.

This is true. There hasn't been any evidence of any bad behavior in their AMD boards; however bad behavior on their nvidia cards is something to be aware of before buying anything from them.

Any company that knowingly puts a defect into their product just to give it a slight market advantage is bad in my book.
