Okay, so im building my first computer and am learning everything about them in the process. I basically just want to know what the title says.
I currently looking at a GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition and wasnt sure if this would work. Im assuming it does but like i said this is my first computer im building and im just now learning about this stuff. if this isnt good enough can someone tell me what is? thanks
If you still want to go AMD, then an 8350 is your best bet for a gaming cpu. The Intel equivalent is in the 3570k range. Personally, I have a 3570k and use a 6870 and I can max out Borderlands 2 at 1080p. That game is about 75% CPU heavy and the rest relies on the GPU.
