Tags: Homebuilt Build Systems Last response: February 25, 2013 2:30 AM in Systems Share myheadsmt91 February 23, 2013 5:04:39 PM Hello, I was trying to build a system for around $500, that was capable of playing most games and had a chance for future upgrades.

Solf February 24, 2013 5:20:26 AM The PSU is a bit heavy for a 7850. If you could, I would aim for a 7870 XT. It's almost a 7950. http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/video-card/#c=124 A system with a 7850 requires about 500w, 600w if you CFX. Just to give you an idea of what you really need. NOTE: Rosewill CAPSTONEs are fine, they are made by Super Flower, one of the few Rosewill PSU worth buying. Yours is a bit expensive though. myheadsmt91 February 25, 2013 2:27:37 AM Best answer selected by myheadsmt91. myheadsmt91 February 25, 2013 2:30:40 AM TheN00bBuilder said:Its gonna be hard to bring it down nearly 300 dollars.
