I am building my first computer with a bugdet of about $900. I am planning on playing Call of Duty Black Opps 2, Portal 2, and Farcry 3 on maxed out settings on a constant 60fps. Would getting the amd radeon 7850 let me do that, or should I ge the 7870?
I am using these parts aswell:
Intel i5 3570k 3.4ghz
Gigabyte ZA-Z77-HD3 LGA 1155 Motherboard
8GB Corsair Vengance 240-pin DDR3
You won't get +60 fps constant maxed out in Far Cry 3 with 7850 (I have that card 2 gb version) but it's still very playable at max settings and you could probably push it up to +60 fps with some overclocking. I haven't overclocked mine yet since I haven't felt the need for it.
