Hey guys, i have around a $220 budget to get my self a new GPU and PSU (Considering my current one is only 400W) I play games like Minecraft (obvously), Anno 2070, Borderlands 2, Arma 2, GTA IV, etc.
On another note, a good friend of mine has a 6850, he records GTA IV on high settings, no lag with around 5 mods. (Using 2 monitors aswell) I've been looking at that card, tell me what ya think. ()
Also, I'm not looking to spend $100 on a power supply, any one that's reliable will most certainly do. (And 550W+)
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Ed. (Running stock 3.4 GHz)
Gigabyte Radeon HD 6450 512MB (lol, this has been my temparary card for the last 2 months)
500GB Samgsung HDD
Some 420W PSU, random brand
8GB DDR3 @ 1333 MHz
You miss the point on the GPU, HD6850 is much faster then a HD7770, by quite a good bit.
600 watt would give headroom, but 500 is minium. Remember, PSUs lose power over time and depends on usage.
Been a while since I have been on here, sorry. Thought driver updates would have pushed the 7770 past the 6850, because I remember they were fairly close, and that 6850 would be running out of stock/price rising. I Should do some more research next time.
