Looking for the best matching gpu
Dec 11, 2012, 12:20 AM
There are so many GPUs are there, so
it is really confusing when I need to make a choice.
My computer has
hd 4830 gpu
phenom ii x4 965 be cpu
I like to play battlefield 3 1920x1080 with low or middle setting above
60fps. Right now, I am getting between 30~45 fps.
My question is what is the best gpu that my cpu can handle.
I don't think budget will be problem since my cpu isn't good enough to handle
those high quality gpu

More important, what is your psu ?
you could get a 7850 or 7870, since you like amd, and those card will not be bottlenecked with the cpu.
But you need a decent psu.

Well its a pretty lightweight game... if youre Ok with last gen cards take a peek at them too. 6700 series is ok 6800 series would be way more then enough. But just a thought

the psu is 460 W
so, gpu will not be affected by cpu performance. That is a good thing.
hd 4830 vs hd 67xx series, will the result be significant ?

What's the brand or the amps ?
You could get a 7770 ghz edition for ~100$, much better than the 6770, and obviously much better than the card you have.
But i recommend for 1080p at least a 7850 1GB or 650 ti

it is coolmaster
I will need to think about either I am going to get 7770 or 7850
A quick question
I heard that geforce is better at playing games compared to radeon
when they have the same or similar clocks
is it true?

If you heard that its all bias. The 2 companies have their ups and downs. AMD usually do better on multimonitor while Nvidia is more rounded
Dec 11, 2012, 1:04 AM
That is why there wasn't lagging when I was playing a game while watching a movie
with two monitors
Dec 11, 2012, 1:09 AM
2 monitors??? on both screens or on 1 lol. hmmm, while youre at it an extra 4 gb of ram wont hurt :P and yah any decent gfx card within 7700 and 7800 will play most games on max or close to max

I have 52 inches tv and a led monitor connected
My family was enjoying a movie, UP (1080p blue-ray file), at the tv
While I was playing other some gun shooting games at the led monitor :P
It seems buying 7770 is reasonable based on Tom's benchmarks
Should I sell my 4830 or just throw away?...

Its up to you, not exactly an easy sell in general but if you can spend a little time go for it
