Hello everyone, before I start I'd just like to apologise for the length of this post, I've been looking through these forums for a couple months now while researching for parts. I have experience in modifying PCs (changing parts in pre-built PCs), this will be my first full build. I've now made an account on the basis of getting advice. I'm a student with a budget of £600, I can stretch to a bit more and I've made this plan up:
I will be using a 1920 x 1080p screen (a 24" monitor and a 42" LCD TV) and wish to reach 40fps or more on Ultra settings for most games and run dolphin emulator. I am not interested in dual monitoring, overclocking or cross fire. My questions are:
1. Will this rig work?
2. Which GPU should I go for, 7870 or 7850? Is the difference worth getting the 7870 over the 7850?
3. Is the PSU too big?
4. Any advice on cutting costs? I do want a good case in mind.
I'm open to any suggestions to change the setup (except for AMD CPUs). Thank you so much in advance to anyone who helps
