Budget build $530 with 7850?

Hello im trying to make a build right now but i was wondering if anyone could make me a build with a 7850 that is $530 or less? I dont need an os or a monitor. just the tower and the parts for that. i want to be able to run Battlefield 3 on high. that way i know i can run a lot of other games. If you cannot make a computer with a 7850 for $530 can you please make another one that will be able to run games really well and has everything come with it that i will need for install?

    ram

    there might be a small bottleneck, but either way you get a ton of GPU horsepower
  2. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DAv2 This build is only going to cost me a clean 500. What do you guys think and would there be any compatibility problems? or any problems in general? and what games could i possibly play?
  3. it will play medium high. mine will be at ultra
  4. yes but i could switch yours around so that i have the 7850 and a better cpu couldnt i?
  5. I want to order the parts for what ever build i get tonight. I really need as much input as I can get from other users.

    Check out these benchmarks.

    The $500 g860 rig has a GTX 560 so you will get a bit better performance with 7850. Then, you could upgrade to an i5. I like going with AMD for budget builds, but it is not worth it in order to get the 7850 (which has a big performance boost over the 7770).

    Hi, no incompatibilities or any problems with the parts listed above, the case doesn't have a front panel USB 3.0 ports but 2.0, which won't mean anything to you, the motherboard has usb ports 3.0 ports in the back.
    The 7850 offers two games, so grab it :)

    yes but i could switch yours around so that i have the 7850 and a better cpu couldnt i?


    in the end i still get more fps than whatever you can muster on a i3 and 7850 build
  11. and cball what about the 560? i saw benchmarks that suggested the 7850 was better? so should i ditch the 560 or go stay with it?
  12. the 7850 is better than the 560.
  13. oh ok.
  14. Hi, change the psu for antec or xfx, rosewill stallion is not a good psu, green line or other are good ones, but stay away from stallion.
    That asus 7850 isn't at that price, get one with 2GB ram.
    It seems you can get the cpu and psu cheaper in ncix us, so you better get those there :

    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=62331
    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=75429&promoid=1139
    You might change the hdd for the wd caviar blue for just 2$ more : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74462&vpn=WD10EZEX&manufacture=Western%20Digital%20WD&promoid=1139

    That will shave some :)
  15. how much will that come too?
  16. ug its so hard to choose!!! and i need to tonight.
  17. Hi, it will come less than 530$, if the i3 is 10$ cheaper in ncix us and the psu less 9$, the hdd for more 2$, still is less than 530$.
  18. is there anything we could do to the i3 build to drop price just a little?
    I would really like that build but its like 10 to 20 dollars over because i still might need an adapter or other cables.
  19. if so could you please post the build because i would love an inexpensive i3 build with the 7850... please :)
  20. how fast do they send products? and would it not be better to go with newegg for the card considering i would get 2 games?
  21. Hi, ncix us offers the games in question, and the card is cheaper there, you'll have free shipping on the items, since the total parts will be more than 100$.
    From the site it says : "Usually ships in 1-2 business days."
  22. also will it come with all of the cords i will need along with everything being compatible?
  23. Hi, the motherboard has two sata cables, the psu has all the cables needed, you don't need additional cords.
  24. ok thank you... your build is being bought now.. Thank you very much. this compared to the computer i am using now is god like!
  25. can those play at ultra? not trying to go against anyone here, but i used to have a 560Ti with a 2500k @4ghz and could only play at med-hi(mostly med) to have good frame rates >50.

    now i can play ultra but i have 670
  26. Hi, nobody said that the 7850 will give 50 fps or more at ultra but it will be a good card for 1080p.
    http://www.techspot.com/review/603-best-graphics-cards/page4.html
  27. and i dont plan on playing on 1080p... i play on 1240 by 1080 or something like that
  28. I will reopen this in like a week to 2 and tell you how the build went.
  29. Hi, then you'll maxout any game at that resolution with a 7850.
  30. lol that sounds awesome XD
  31. maxing out games with a 7850 is a lie at anything above 1600x900. ultra most likely

    Hi, did you see what he said about the resolution ? :pfff:

    darksnake23 said:

    He probably meant 1280x1024, or something like that, so it will maxout at those resolutions.
  33. Also will that 450 wattage psu be good enough? all of the parts are on there way and i will have everything by thursday.
  34. The antec is decent and will do, but i rather get the xfx 450 core edition : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=63238&promoid=1257

    There's also the corsair CX600(it's inferior to the xfx) : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028
    38$ after promo code.

    Cheaper hdd : http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=65701&promoid=1332
  35. actually, id rather get the caviar blue 1tb. same price, but more warranty
  36. I have already paid... I was just wondering if it could handle the parts?
  37. Yes, the antec vp-450 is a decent psu it will do for the 7850.
  38. ok good thank you. I will let you guys know how it goes once the parts get here.
  39. just that a xfx 450 is better
  40. I think i migt regret going with the I3. I checked the sys req of Arma 2 and it says for recommended to have a I5 or a phenom X4. The phenom would have been better for gaming :'(
  41. You're fine, the i3 doesn't bottleneck the 7850, if in BF3 mp(cpu demanding) the i3 is better, so it will be in other games : http://www.pcgameshardware.de/screenshots/original/2012/12/BF3-Test-Multiplayer-CPU-Benches-720p.png
  42. Uh thats a broken link? and I will be fine running ARMA 2? Day Z everything high? at 1280 by 1024?
  43. It's not broken : http://www.pcgameshardware.de/screenshots/original/2012/12/BF3-Test-Multiplayer-CPU-Benches-720p.png

    Arma 2 is a poorly optimized game, and very demanding, but it will do.
  44. Everytime i click on it i get http://www.pcgameshardware.de/screenshots/nodeeplink.gif
    And by it will do what do you mean? Also will my res with everything else highest still look good? graphical wise?
  45. Here's the bench :



    At that resolution, you'll be able to play it in high settings.
  46. I just watched a bench mark with res at 1920 by 1080 or something and it had same parts i did. But he ran it on ultra with msaa X4 at min of 26 and average of 46 or something? will the lower res bog me down?
  47. Since you have a lower resolution expect to have more fps.
  48. ok but i can run day z highest everything a playable fps you think?
