You might want to get a 450w psu. Down grade an i3 3220 or a vishera 4300, so you can get a stronger gpu. I can't say what because I don't know the prices in england.

Would you say a XFX DD Core Edition Radeon HD 7770 AMD Graphics Card - 1GB is an upgrade, or is it the same medicine in a different bottle?

Is that too small? I want to play some games, but they are not Fear 3 in compexity. Would I need to shell out for a bigger card to get the graphics on at least Medium-High, or would the HD 7770 be sufficient?

A 7770 is definitely an upgrade, it is about the same strength as a 460

Funny that, they cost exactly the same at scan.co.uk.

That's good. If they do yo should follow my suggestions, about the other components. Look at the 650ti and 7850 next. The 7850 is a lot more powerful than the 650ti.

By 7850, do you mean the Raedeon cards?
December 8, 2012 9:23:02 PM

Yes, If it is in the thousands, I mean radeon, if it is in the 100's it mean nvidia. The 7850 will play most games on the highest settings if you get 2gb ram, some games will have to be downgraded with a few setting on medium/high

Seeing as I am not a man made of money, how does the 450 compare?
December 9, 2012 7:42:17 AM

I can afford the 650 sans Ti and below.

What about the 550ti?
