Hello

I am looking to put together a gaming pc in the next week and looking to get a i3 3220 and put it with a hd 7850 preferably a 2gb version.

I am just wondering can anyone recommend a decent hd 7850 2gb or a alternative card that will give similar performance for under £165 and preferably one that comes with free games!

also what psu and watt would be recommended for this card.

Preferred websites: scan, overclocker, ebuyer, dabs
monitor: 1920x1080

I am looking to run as many games as possible bf3 crysis planetside 2 etc

i have been looking at the MSI HD7850 Twin Frozr http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-radeon-hd-7850-t...

But are they better alternatives?

Doesn't matter what make really, just get one that has a decent warranty, cheapest etc, I got the Sapphire, but MSI, Evga, etc is fine, I have a 550w XFX Core Edition which is fine, but I wish I got a bigger PSU as it might not be able to run crossfire.

Hi. If you're going to buy a 2GB card under that budget, you're better off with the GTX 660 such as this one: http://www.dabs.com/products/evga-geforce-gtx-660-993mh...
From Scan: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-evga-gtx-660-28nm-pc...
One with dual fans from Gigabyte: http://www.dabs.com/products/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-660-2...
There may be others too. The XFX ProSeries 450W should be sufficient: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/450w-xfx-pro-core-editio...

Johnson might be right, the gtx 660 looks decent, upto you really.

ok thanks for the suggestion, i read somewhere that the 7850 can be oc and would be better than the gtx 660, is this true?


are there anywhere in the uk that are offering the 7850 or 660 with a few free games

thanks

Like looniam said you can overclock the GTX 660 too but now that AMD has their Never Settle Reloaded bundles I think you'd probably want either the HD 7850 or HD 7870. Scan for one has the new bundles here: http://www.scan.co.uk/shop/computer-hardware/all/gpu-am...
