More about budget
  1. Yeah, should work just fine.
  2. How much for the 560 gtx ?
    In my opinion there're better options like the 7850 from amd or the 660 gtx from nvidia.
  3. The 560 is 170, but i prefer nvidia. Does all my parts fit with mobo ? And does my build support the 560 ?

    Thanks
  4. You can fit with a 600$ budget a 660 gtx which is much better than the 560 non ti.

    Preference isnt worth throwing money away on worse performance

    a Radeon 7850 is a much better card in every way and some are cheaper than that
  6. But i heard ati driver were really bad compared to nvidia... Are drivers important for gaming performance/compatibility. Some games run with physix, but ati cards don't have physix
  7. Can't you fit a 660 gtx ?
    It's much better than the 560 gtx or even the 7850.
    See my suggestions.
    See benchmarks :

  8. I don't understand why people have problems with AMD drivers, I've never had any major problems with drivers from either manufacturer personally. A friend of mine has actually had far more problems with Nvidia than AMD.

    They are right as well, the HD 7850 2GB is a lot better. It consumes far less power and performs a bit worse than the GTX 570, a lot better than the GTX 560.

    660 don't fit my budget
  10. What about a 7850 1gb for 170$ ? What is the main difference between 1gb and 2gb ?
  11. How come ? it's bellow 600$, unless it's all from newegg.
    If you want a 7850 1GB :

    There's this one on amazon with 2GB for a good price but it's out of stock for now : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r7850twinfrozr2gd5oc

    For 1080p with current games, the 7850 1GB has the same performance as the 7850 2GB : http://tpucdn.com/reviews/Club_3D/HD_7850_RoyalQueen/images/perfrel_1920.gif

    be smart and get the 7850
  13. Im from canada, quebec. I can't buy from amazon.ca and i must buy from newegg...

    Is it a great deal and a good brand to go with? And does my build support this graphic card ?
  14. Sapphire is a good quality brand

  16. Does a Cx430 enough or i need a cx500 to power this build ?
  17. A CX430 is enough, if you can pay the parts in ncix.ca (from canada), it's worth, the corsair cx500w is terrible overpriced in newegg.ca, in ncix you can get a xfx 450w (made by seasonic) for much less, if not good luck with your build.
  18. Thanks a lot for help !
  19. Yeah the CX-430 is enough for the i5 + GTX 660. Your max power draw from the PSU will be something like 200-250W.
  20. Ncix don't sell a lot of stuff. Not as much as newegg
