Gfx card for GW2, Dota2, Tags: Radeon Graphics Last response: February 24, 2013 4:29 AM in Graphics & Displays Share csprajeeth February 23, 2013 11:25:39 AM Hello, My rig is as follows : AMD Phenom II 720 - 2.8ghz Asus M4A78T-E Motherboard 4GB DDR3 RAM 350W PSU Resolutions looking to play at: 1920x1080 primarily but also willing to play at 1680x1050 if it helps to get a cheaper card. I am looking for a card that can run Guild Wars 2 Dota 2 and other MMOs WITHOUT LAG (fps drop). I am sick of ****in lag. Please no more. I am currently looking at Radeon 7850 and 7750. Will the 7850 1GB version be sufficient? More about : gfx card gw2 dota2 excella1221 February 23, 2013 11:51:02 AM The 7850 should be plenty for both games. What brand is your PSU? 350w could technically still run a 7850, but it's a bit on the edge so if it's an off-brand, I suggest not risking it. EDIT: Both those games are pretty reliant on CPU power as well, so you may be limited on that side with that Phenom. m 0 l whyso February 23, 2013 12:53:49 PM Gw2 is gonna kill your cpu. Gw2 is so cpu dependant that anything over a 7770 is not going to change anything. MMO's are generally hard on the cpu. Suggestion if you can is to buy the 7850 and then later replace your cpu + mobo+ PSU. m 0 l Related resources Can G3220 Play dota2 ?

And yes, you can enable the 4th core in the BIOS, but I read it's unstable after a certain clock speed. Best to check with Prime 95. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
