Hello I just built my first computer and have a question. I did not get a gpu because I didn't have enough money at the time. I could purchase a low end one soon around $75 like a 6670. Or i could Wait 1-3 months gather some more money and hope for a price drop and get a 7850-7870.
Here are my specs
Amd Phenom x4 945
corespeed: @3.30 MHz
Asus M5A78L-M LX PLUS
Asus Dvd Burner (Enough to Install Windows)
For that resolution you should go with at least the HD 7850 as you've said. Since the price difference between the HD 7850 2GB and the HD 7870/GTX 660 isn't that much, I suggest going with those instead if you can.
Okay I think I will suffer with the mobo graphics and not being able to play Planetside 2 for a few months and get a beast of a graphics card instead. Thanks for the help. ALso one more thing whats better the 7870 or 660?\
I can't answer that since they're not that different. You can find many threads on this subject here and you'll have plenty of time to decide. I personally go with the cheapest one since I don't prefer one over the other. You're welcome.
