I am thinking about buying that graphics card in the near future because of what I have heard people saying about it.

Is it worth buying or can I get better for the price?

Thanks

But is it the best for the price range? How would it do on BF3 ultra? My monitor is 1600x900...

My GTX 550ti already gets about 30FPS

+1 FYI when he says 'ps' he means PSU (power supply unit). Not sure why he doesn't say 'your' either.

Get a new PSU asap.

I know, and I plan on it. And I dont think I put the correct power supply.. It is a Coolermaster 550w, but I think it is a different model. Still I do plan on getting a corsair powersupply.... Maybe a builder series.. 450watt? Would I need more to run this graphics card?

Understandable however we were talking about quality power supply units and i would use 80+ bronze units as a start.

Yea I'm in agreeance that 2 gigabytes would be preferred for most in a 1080p and 1200p environment. Also, just was trying to get a stronger quality unit power supply standard 80 plus as it may be good is still a little meh. You put all the money you do into a computer and you spend less then 5 percent on your power supply that says something.

Seasonic OEM is of good quality however I do disagree with the difference in 80+ to 80 plus bronze and above. If you are really trying to skip corners I can see how it would work for you I just don't like the idea of going cheap on a power supply. When you are spending 1200 dollars on your computer system.

that is fine the card is a 2 gigabyte 7850. I've seen people do just fine with the cx430 however it makes me nervous going under the minimum requirements even if it works and doesn't use up the power.

hello 5% difference. its mostly in energy saving ull see a difference not in quality of the current.

u wont see any real world difference between the 650 and 520 unless u need more than 520watts.

I'm not saying its a bad power supply. They are both fairly close in price with the deals/promo offers that are out. If it fits the bill go for it. For me personally I prefer to put more of an investment into my computer and I tend to go for higher quality power supplies most on the forums would not they would run there computers on CX430's all day long and it seems to work fine for them. I will stick with my AX850.

No I understand that people have budgets and that a power supply may be decent. However with a power supply being one of the more important pieces of hardware you can purchase surely you can manage to spend more then 5% of your build on one especially if you are forking out 1200 dollars.

Well if you take a look at his system there are a few things he can cut to make room for better components. He is spending 180 dollars on a z68 motherboard. he also has down a cpu cooler when he doesn't have a chip that can overclock. Also one could argue with the SSD he has included.

yea single rails are alot more stable than quad rails imo, and thats one reason they rarely still make quads.

Which is what iceblock suggested you save money most of the time getting the non seasonic brand seasonic branded products come at a premium for the same product most of the time.
