I have been looking at building my first gaming rig and was wondering which card would suit my needs best.
I have been looking at the
Sapphire radeon hd 7870 OC edition £188
AMD radeon HD 7950 £223
NVidia GTX 660Ti £231
I am going to use this card for games such as crysis, civilisation V, Team fortress 2, Battlefield 3 and other games too.
My budget is about £190 so the 7870 is perfect for that but is it worth it to upgrade to the 7950 or 660Ti?
If so which one is the best?
I dont need ridiculous FPS I just need at card that will run games at playable rates (40-60 FPS).
I am also looking for a card that will survive the newer engines and still be able to cope with games like Far Cry 3 and Crysis 3 when they are released.
I am unsure of resolution as I have not bought a monitor yet however I think i will be playing at 1920x1080
My specs are:
ASRock extreme4 z77 or ASUS p8z77 V
8gb Corsair Vengeance
Cooler Master 212 EVO
Antec three hundred two
Graphics Card undecided
XFX Pro Core 850w
Western digital caviar green 7200rpm Sata III 1tb
Also another quick question:
Will my case fit all the components in as I know that the Cooler Master 212 EVO is quite tall?
