  1. Yes it will handle it with no problem. The 5850 consumes more power than the 7870.
  2. You should be okay with that psu. Can I ask why the upgrade?
  3. Looks well balanced. :)

    im preparing for crysis 3 and dragon age 3 :D
  5. Yup no probs there. Have fun.
  6. im torn between 7870 and gtx 660.any recomendation?
  7. 7870, It's nearly as fast as the 7950 and it can overclock like a champ.
  8. HD 7870 performs 10% better. GTX 660 has Adaptive VSync, TXAA and PhysX. It's up to you what's more important to you :).
  9. ordered the xfx 7870 black edition,can't wait to pick it up at the of the week :)
  10. Glad you made your choice. You won't be sorry.
