  1. Mkay so does anyone have any benchmark information about the 470? 480 is insanely expensive and am thinking of buying an eVga 470. It's about the same price range as a 5870 . It is most likely slower but i do like the technologies in it(tessellation just blew me away ). I am sure I am not the only one pondering on just how slow it is in comparison with a 5870.
  2. I would lose the i7 and buy a phenom II x4 955 C3 or 965 C3 and with the money leftover buy a vapor-X edition of either 5850 or 5870(not sure which of these cards will keep you at your current price range). If you are in overclocking both the CPU and the GPU will be able to overclock great. the 5850 vapor-x can overclock to 20 - 24% without any problems whatsoever. A little more overclock on it and you got a stock 5870.
  3. Try getting your hands on a Vapor-X 5850. I think the power supply needed for that is a little more expensive but you'll be able to overclock that baby to 5870 performance easily. check out the review made on it. It literally converted me to Radeon.
  4. Thank you all for your feedback it was really helpful. All I need now is to figure out what kind of power supply I need for the Vapor-X 5850. I will be overclocking it as soon as i get a 24 inch monitor.
  5. I might consider getting an x3. If the power supply will get the price over 1000 $ then I won't have much of a choice really.
  6. Already found a gigabyte that can support the the 1600 clocked HyperX Kingston I have my eye on. All I need now is to figure out what power supply i will be needing for the 5850. is 550 enough?
  7. I don't like the 5770 quite that much. And about the 4 core ... i am really not sure. From what i heard it's not that important to have 4 cores for gaming except maybe in GTA 4's case. I don't know maybe make it a little future proof? Anyway here's the new configuration i made up dropping the 24' monitor: phenom II x4 955 , 5850 vapor-x toxic which until i get the 24 inch monitor no need for OC'ing, and 4 gigs of HyperX Kingston DDR3 1600 RAM. I think i have a sure winner here.
  8. Greetings members of OCC. New member yet long-time viewer of this site. I've been meaning to buy a computer system but I am still not sure what parts I want. I have 800$ to spend on a new system or 1000$ if i don't buy a 24' er that can run 1980 res and remain with my 19' 1280 monitor. Here's what I had in mind: -AMD Athlon II x4 620 (decided to get a cheaper CPU to have more money for the video card) -Corsair DDR 3 1600 4GB RAM -Gigabyte 4890 -Mobo ... I've no idea. Saw an MSI that was interesting. And when i say interesting i mean cheap xD and the rest of the stuff to form a full system got me to a total of 800 dollars. Also would a 450 power source be enough? Keep in mind that I am from Romania(somewhere in eastern Europe) and you can't always find all the parts you want (Vapor-X 4890 nowhere to be found <_< ). System is intended for gaming. If you have any better ideas on parts please don't hesitate to mention them.Any opinions will be extremely appreciated. Thanks!
