Hi, i just bought a sapphire 7770 ghz edition, I can't put it in my PC till i get home, i'm on holiday at the minute.

The resolution of my monitor is 1920x1080.

Games i'm looking to play with at least medium settings - Battlefield 3, Euro truck simulator 2, far cry 3, just cause 2, need for speed most wanted and mafia 2.

Rest of system in signature.

So, can i play these with 1080p and at least medium settings? :) 

Cheers!

Will i get over 30FPS on all of them, and are the rest of my specs good enough?

Well built a computer with the 7770 in it for a buddy. He loves it. Does most games on upper low to medium graphics.

you can run most games on full hd resolutions in medium to high settings. You just need to turn some eye candy like AA nd AF off in order to get decent fps

Sorry, rest of specs below.

AMD athlon ii x4 640
10GB Kingston HyperX Blu 1600MHz
AMD radeon 7770 OC
FSP Bluestorm ii 500W

Shouldn't bottleneck should it? :)

wow, you should just save up and build a new system.


Can you not disagree with my GPU choice AND my build.

I'm 14, this system/GPU was hard to save for, in fact, my system was only built 3 weeks ago.

So, it may be easy for better off people to mock it, but i'm happy with it as my familys not rich.

7770 will run pretty much any game on medium at 1080p. Ignore the trolls who bash midrange or budget cards. They're probably running on integrated graphics themselves.

I'm sorry for my comment. For what you have the 7770 is well rounded. 10Gigs of ram seems odd. Make sure you're running the same amount of ram in both channels and that slot 0,2 and 1,3 match so you are getting dual channel and not single channel.


I have 2x4GB Kingston hyperx blu ram and 1x2GB Hyperx blu, it's running in dual channel.

How do you think the 7770 would handle the games i listed?

Cheers! :)

I am using Sapphire 7770 OC edition on 1600x900 and does well with BF3 and NFS most wanted 2012 on high settings.

mine does all games on high settings at 1440*900 without breaking a sweat.

Sadly Battlefield 3 leans towards Nvidia as my gtx 660 matches a 7950 in performance in that game. I'd suggest running your games in 720P, medium settings, and with some AF/AA. You'll have a better gaming experience with a little AA and medium settings than high settings and no AA.


In the 12.11 Beta drivers all the 7000 series got a huge boost in performance. I don't think your statement is true any more.

What do you think, which one is better: Sapphire 7770 or Gigabyte 7770 OC? I like how Sapphire looks like but Gigabyte seems to be a little bit faster. And one more, can you rate my configuration plz from 1 to 10:
AMD Athlon X4 740
Patriot DDR3-1866 8192MB
ASRock FM2A75M-DGS
Gigabyte 7770 OC (not bought it yet, just considering)

There is no need to make excuses for your system. It's perfectly respectable. It's better than what most people of any income bracket use for their home computer- it just isn't the grand statement of your commitment to excess that some people feel a need to make. I would have never guessed you were 14- on the other hand, I might have assumed that of someone happy to mock someone for "only" having a quad-core processor, dedicated mid-high end graphics card and 10gb of DDR3-12800 memory as their system specs.

I don't have a whole lot to add to the answers already given, but I did feel the need to say something about the fact that you shouldn't be put in the spot of having to defend yourself just because someone felt like randomly making themselves look like a troll.

Hi, i would rate your system a 6/10 for todays standards, 7/10 if the CPU was overclocked.

I would think the gigabyte one is better, it's overclocked and has a good fan/heatsink.

A 7770 would be a good upgrade.

Cheers! :)

I got the 7770 today, it and the hardware work flawlessly.

Plays mafia 2, euro truck simulator 2, just cause 2 and need for speed most wanted at 1080P with medium-high settings at 40+ FPS!

Very happy with it.

Nice, Yea if people dissing because of your budget then they in the wrong and if your happy with your pc then happy gaming. I will say this when its time to upgrade ask questions about the right path so we can do our best to work with what type of budget you have to have a better experience on your new future upgrades but only when your ready. But im glad to see we have a new comer to the pc world congrats!!!

That is awesome. Congrats on your working build. I built one almost exactly the same for a buddy and he's about the same graphics level. Only differences are i gave him the phenom ii 965 and only 8gigs of the same ram.

A 7770 should play high at 1080p for bf3, only issue is in multiplayer where the athlon x4 may slow it down. My 6770 plays high at 1080p at 30fps with my x6

Athlon x4 640 should be okay if overclocked to 3.8GHz? :)

Makes me wonder why I spent 229.99 on a gtx 660 2gb sc if a 7770 can play bf3 on high @ 1080p....


Because the 660 is better in my opinion and why have a weaker card if your pc can handle something nicely

I know the 660 is better in every way. I couldn't live without at lease x4 AA + FXAA. My above post was me being,....... me lol.

Oh ok..I got the 660ti and im still looking at the option to upgrade to the 700 series when they come out

7770 is certainly not "very good" for gaming. It's an entry level card, good for gaming at lower settings or older games.

10GB of RAM is quite odd... not necessary at all, 4GB of quality gaming RAM would be a bit better since you won't use 10GB of RAM. Also, invest in a better PSU when you can. I've read some not-so-great reviews on yours, you don't want it to die because then your system will be useless until you can buy a new one. Your CPU and GPU are okay for now, they will be sufficient until you can upgrade. GPU prices will drop when AMD's 8xxx series and Nvidia's 7xx series comes out.

But, so you know, the 7770 will not offer too good performance at 1920x1080. You could probably game on medium with a couple of high settings at 1280x720 smoothly.

It runs far cry 3 at 1080P with medium/high settings and 4x MSAA at 40FPS
January 23, 2013 3:07:54 PM

It just nice mid range card, budget card btw, so far, it help me a lot doing my jb render 3d video and photoshop job, 8gb hyperX do a lot in helpin, see most diffrence when use 4gb.. Btw, it's enough for mid set and some game can play at max setting..
