Hey im building a Gaming pc and i'm buying it next week but the GPU Radeon 7850 i will buy in march and for the time being use my Nvidia gt520 and is this build ok for the 7850 and gt520(for 3 months)

AMD FX-6200 3.8GHz 6-Core Processor
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Seagate Constellation ES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Corsair Builder 430W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply

ALso dos the Cpu come with it's own cpu cooler?
and if no or yes will i need to use the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler?

on this build i would like to play bf3 and far cry3 on at leats high setting if not medium without a lag because i have a 2.1Ghz 1gb gt520 old pc and on medium i get bits of lags when shooting on bf3 so im not worried about the bf3 running because it will even on ultra but im worried playing far cry 3 on high?

i will be buying the pc next week Friday so please Tell me what i will need to change and also i want the pc to last at least 4-5 years so i will probably need to change the GPU AFTER Couple years.Thanks :sol:  and just to add my case has 3 fans already if that will help

The cpu does come with a heatsink and fan . Ideally use a 6300 which is a later model and more power efficient . Its clocked a little lower but its easy to adjust that .

Thank you very much well there is a 450w one which will probably be good for the 7850 so i will just stay with that as i have been told by many people on other threads and yeah thanks for the hard drive i had the same thoughts that its a bit too expensive and for diffrent use than gaming. and besides that everything is arlight ?
i will also look closer at the 6300

Well iv been told i cant cross fire the 7850 with 6200 and also a question on amazon/ebay etc there are alot of 7850's but all lokok diffrently and are diffrent comapnies so which one should i choose? as you can see there are hundreds of diffrent ones and i would like to add 3 screen so will need 2x vga or how it works.

Also a question if i want to use a triple screen i have a 27"tv in the middle and 2x 19" so i will need to put the 27" one into one vga and for the other two i will need to buy a vga splitter do dva?

That's definitely not true - your motherboard, not your CPU - will determine whether or not you can Crossfire. Any 970 / 990FX motherboard will allow you to.

Sapphire and XFX are recommended brands for Radeon manufacturers.

Don't buy a GPU from eBay - especially one that's marked used or open box - if you don't know the seller. Better would be to buy from a reliable site like Scan or Novatech that way you have a fail safe return policy if something goes wrong: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-xfx-radeon-hd-7850-c...

Scan prices are actually cheaper than eBay and they're all new cards.

If you wish to crossfire or SLI the cheapest motherboard that can do that is the Asrock 970 extreme4

MSI have a similar model too , but its best avoided since some of their boards have failed in service

Other than that you have to step up to motherboards with 990X or 990FX chipsets and they are more expensive


You can run a single 7850 with the Corsair cx 430 . If you want crossfire then
550 -600 watts

Yeah I had an MSI 870 board - failed after three days. Then I swapped it with an Asus M4A87TD Evo and that lasted probably six months before failing. Finally got a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 and it's been problem free ever since.
