Needing To Know Which GPU TO choose

Hello,
I am building myself a computer because i need a better one than i already have. I have a youtube channel and im not doing to bad, I do Vlogs and i need something to render quite fast with the ability to play the ocasional game (Maby some call of dutys, etc...). I have alread thought of a rig to use and im happy with the spec and prices i just cant seem to work out the right graphics card for me. Heres what i have already done:

AMD Phenom 2 x6 1045T
Asus M5A78L LE AMD 760G
Cooler Master k380
Segate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB
Samsung SH-118AB/BEBE SATA 18x DVD-ROM
Cooler Master RS-600-ASAB GX-Lite 600W
Corsair Memory Vengeance Low Profile Jet Black 8gb 1600mhz
I might be adding a SSD later in the year

If you have any other recomendations please comment them! These come up to £305.53 and i have a budget of 400 but im sure going over a little bit wont matter much.

Thanks,
Joe

    those items are theoretically appealing, but they are crxp

    btw do you want to use amd/intel cpu? or prefer anything better?
  6. Thanks for the reply, I would like to use a intel but im not sure that would be possible to make for £400 would it? and be great at rendering. So i went with a x6. What do you suggest as i would to love what you would build for £400. That would help me greatly

    alot better :P, 430w is more than enough. The 7850 has incredible value, and the 6300 is better than the 1045t by a good ammount.
  8. I heard that FX systems run on on board graphics, Is that wrong?

    Not if you have a dedicated GPU. Actually, it doesn't have an IGPU at all (i think). You are thinking of the APU's that have onboard graphics, but even then, with a dedicated GPU it just disables the IGPU.
  10. ohh ok thanks!
