For gaming you will get alot more performance if you get a i3 or x4 965 and spend more on the GPU. For $500 you are looking at a i3+7850 which will beat the i5+7770 in gaming. m 0 l c601 January 4, 2013 8:39:42 PM where can i find 7770 for 100$? m 0 l AMD Radeon a c 281 4 Gaming January 4, 2013 8:43:35 PM a few days ago i could find 7770 at 80-99 easily... price change be sure to keep an eye for them this one is the cheapest http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100358... m 0 l blake1243 January 4, 2013 8:46:22 PM AMD Radeon said:a few days ago i could find 7770 at 80-99 easily... price change be sure to keep an eye for them this one is the cheapest http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-100358...

If you want better all around gaming performance then go with an i3 or Phenom ii x4 965 and a HD 7850. m 0 l real world January 6, 2013 3:56:50 PM Do you live near a Microcenter? If so, the i5-3570 is $169 right now, and if u bundle it with a motherboard, you get a $40 discount. Also with a $40 off mothrboard bundle discount at MC, is the $119 i3-3225. These are in-store only deals, so you have to be near a Microcenter. www.microcenter.com Look at the top right hand corner ad click on their flyer. Somewhere are page 33 or so, they show the bundle deals. m 0 l c601 January 6, 2013 4:03:37 PM i want i5, i will buy a better videocard later... m 0 l blake1243 January 6, 2013 7:26:22 PM Then its really not a gaming build lol. A real gaming build is when you fit the best possible GPU you can with said budget. m 0 l c601 January 6, 2013 9:06:26 PM but with this i can play all games in mid/high settings. my monitor is 1024x768, i will buy new videocard later with new monitor... what kind of adapter i need to connect my old monitor to hd7770? m 0 l blake1243 January 6, 2013 10:33:31 PM lol 1024x768 are you serious?? thats not even 720p. m 0 l c601 January 7, 2013 9:20:57 AM i know it is very old, but what adapter i need? m 0 l blake1243 January 7, 2013 9:30:03 AM The HD 7770 should come with a DVI/VGA so you should be good to go with your dinosaur monitor. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
