So I recently bought a new PC with the following specs:
Galaxy 3 Gaming Case With Side Window and Blue LED Fans
Motherboard: Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P
CPU Type: AMD FX Quad Core
CPU Model: AMD Bulldozer FX 4100 3.6ghz Quad Core 8mb Cache
CPU Socket: AMD AM3 / AM3+
CPU Clock Speed: 3.6 Ghz
Memory / Kit Size: 8gb DDR3 1600mhz Crucial Ballistix Sport
Hard Drive Size: 1tb Sata Hard Drive
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 6450 1gb DDR3 with HDMI Hyper Memory Upto 2gb
PSU Size: 500 Watt Branded Power Supply
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit With License / Disc
Rear Panel Connections: 1x DVI Port, 1x Gigabit Network Card, 1x VGA Ports, 2x PS/2 Ports, 4x USB 2.0 ports, Sound Card
Front / Top Case Ports: 2x USB 2.0 Ports, Headphone Jack, Microphone Jack
Features: Front Audio Ports, Front USB Ports, Gigabit Lan, USB 2.0
(I know they're not great but I had a tight budget!) Basically the graphics card really needs an upgrade and I was wondering what graphics cards under £100 would be best for my system.
I'm new to forums so I apologize in advance if I left any information out.
OK thanks will definitely look into getting the 7770. Just one more question, what sort of performance could I expect from this graphics card with my setup in terms of gaming ? i.e. what sort of games would i be able to run at a good frame rate and at what quality.
I would expect high game settings in bf3. ARMA 2 is less graphic intensive so I would say you are just fine there you may be able to max out I'm not sure. And with planetside to you would get pretty decent settings high I would say with all the games you are playing. You may have to turn down things like AA+AF in games but you should be more then okay with a 7770.
