  1. Best answer
    500w wont enough for doing crossfire safely

    get corsair tx 750 v2
  2. But will 500w be enough for HD 7850

    Will Fx 6300 bottleneck HD 7850 on 1440x900

    Will it play bf3 ultra
  3. 500W is enough for ONE card. ONE card however may not max out BF3 adequately, not sure with your low resolution.

    That CPU is a great match for the 7850 and BF3.


  4. latest drivers and at resolution slightly higher than yours (about 20% more pixels than1440x900) ultra 4xAA
    assuming scaling with pixel count you avg fps with same settings would be 63fps (just an assumption, probably a bit off)
    if you tone down AA or drop to High settings you should be able to hit quite a bit than 60fps avg

    A decent 600W psu can be enough for crossfire as long as you don't do an extreme OC but I doubt it with a 500W
    what brand is your PUS and what is the model?

    Dunno how you gonna fit all this into your budget
    970 chipset board will cost an additional $10 over the current amd builds I have posted

    Dropping to a 7850 1gb puts you closer into budget (but crossfire ability is hampered due to vram issues in the future)

  5. If you disable MSAA on BF3, the 7850 can run it on Ultra just fine at very high fps. I was gaming tonight at 1920x1080 and getting 50-90fps depending on complexity of the map (in multiplayer). With MSAA on, you should still be able to get 50fps at 1440x900 as that's a pretty low res.

    MSAA smooths out some textures, but it also puts a foggy look over everything. I actually like it better without.
  6. If you are gonna pay $219 for the 7850, I'd suggest you add an extra $10 and get the 7870XT (which is essentially a 7930) and way better: http://pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_877&products_id=22504

    Edit: I believe you'd have to consider a higher wattage PSU for the 7870XT.
  7. I can't keep the names straight, I thought it was the 7870 LE. Either way, I agree with the "Tahiti" based 7870 chip and it only asks for a 500W psu so not bad.

    A 500 watt psu will run crossfire 7770'sif its a quality unit

    But buy the 7850 . It will game really well

    And stick with the FX 6300 build . It games as well as the intel dual cores and demolishes them pretty much every where else
  10. I can stretch my budget a bit but I can't get the 7870 because its $50 more where I live
