More about radeon 7770 good
  1. A 7770 with a powerful CPU to match will easily run Skyrim maxed out at 1080p, Skyrim is primarily CPU bound. Theres not really anything else at that price so go for it.

    A couple of benchmarks on it, though it will be a bit faster on the newer drivers. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536
  2. sweet, im using a intel quad core processor 2.40GHz and 8gb ram.
    How do you think the system will run with this graphic card on games like battlefield 3.
    I trying to be sure that the this card will be awesome for the games i play and play without lag ill list them.

    BattleField 3
    Tera
    DayZ
    Far Cry 3
    and to run DMC when it out friday.
  3. Would need to know your resolution to answer that really, and your exact CPU model, theres a big performance change between different resolutions and a CPU can really impact performance depending on if a game is more dependent on the CPU or GPU.

    Either way, the 7770 is the best for the money at the moment.
  4. Indeed I agree with cooky can we please see your specifications

    CPU:
    RAM:
    MOBO:
    PSU:
    GPU: WiP
  5. yea sure.

    CPU: intel CORE 2 qQ6600 Quad core processor 2.40GHz
    Ram: 8GB
    PSU: 700WATT
    MOBO: Gigabyte G41MT-S2P
  6. A 7770 would be appropriate for that CPU. However, for the games you are looking to play I would suspect that you may not get the exact performance you are after. You do have a aging processor which where it still may be good does not have the power to keep up with current gen cards withstanding the 7750/7770, 650Ti.

    When you say it's best for the money, like how long will it last? I'm just wondeirng because I'm trying to build a gaming pc on a budget, but I'm afraid the new Radeon GPUs are coming out soon....but kind of need a computer now. Would it be worth it just to get the 7770 now and upgrade later?
  8. If you need a computer now then I can understand you spending money on a 7770. The 8770's will probably be a while before they release.

    Thank, as long i can play game at least on high with descent frame rate, the graphic card i have now still lags mad on skyrim on the open area because of Fov.

    Its a difficult question to answer without a crystal ball to be honest. With the new consoles coming out at the end of the year there will be a wave of Dx11 games with most likely greater demands than what theres been upto now. If or not a 7770 will be 'good' after that depends on you, and what levels of performance make you happy. All GPU's become useless eventually.
  11. Agreed typically the higher end cards will last a 2-3 generations of cards before they are no longer able to keep up I would suspect that within the next generation or 2 of games that you may end up with a hard time with games.
