edit: you can never go wrong with AMD/ATi biggrin.gif unless ofcourse u buy a 4350 (3870 x2 is on geeks for 90$ but the 6770 blows it away) right?

or there is this:

or a $110 6790 (with free shipping if you sign up for shoprunner) trades blows with the 6850 irrc

6790 vs 6850.... i believe the 6850 wins against 6790, because the 6850 has 160 more streams, and just overclocking it a bit, makes the 6790 a noticeably slower frames.

There is a MSI Cyclone 6850 in the market.. for $110

I was going to buy it to replace my 6770 but I opted for a 6870 biggrin.gif

Granted the 6770 is an OK card, but once you start gaming you'll find the high detail eye candy really destroys the card.
I can't even play metro 2033 on high....22fps rolleyes.gif

Which one? and why? anything special?

they are about the same.
But I had a bad exp. with a lowend asus board *NO overclocking. had the features but could not do it* so I'd opt for the Gigabyte

PLUS the asus board is 3+1 and the gigabyte is 4+1 thumb.gif

Lol. i dont even know whats games im going to play, but hell a 6450 1gb sapphire ocd to 775mhz paired with BD fx-41-- ocd to 4.2ghz ram skyrim without a problem on highest settings, so im sure the 6770 1gb wont let me down biggrin.gif plus it has a fan and isnt cooled by just a heatsink.... so i say i could get myself some sort of a high OC capable card, on the side of playing MMORPGS such as AIKA,

ok, so I see what you are doing. The microcenter 960T deal? So to get all of this into budget, you might have to grab a used monitor and possibly GPU. Look on craigslist for a 1080p monitor, for under $100. I recently got one 1920x1200 and one 1080p as a bundle for $150. it was a steal.

So:
$100 Monitor: Craigslist
$90 CPU+Mobo: 960T + Gigabyte mobo
$190 total

Part list permalink

Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 1GB Video Card ($136.97 @ Newegg)
Case: Rosewill Blackbone ATX Mid Tower Case ($33.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Antec 430W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($34.99 @ Amazon)
Optical Drive: LG GH22NS90B DVD/CD Writer ($15.99 @ Newegg)
Keyboard: Gigabyte GK-KM5200 Wired Standard Keyboard w/Optical Mouse ($12.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $234.93
$424 final total


or you could drop the 7770 and pick up a used 6850, or even a used GTX 460. Both are ~20% or more of an increase from a 6770. thumb.gif

My confirmed total budget is 420$ lol.
the monitor isn't being bought by me, but theyre buying one for 100$
so that leaves me with 320$
what can we do with this now?

im going to eventually upgrade the other parts (PSU, RAM, HDD, MOBO, But that'll be later)
post #98 of 142
that AMD budles at MC would really help you get better things in you budget buddy have a look at it
anyways grab a better PSU and a 7750 instead of a 6770 and for 20$ more this is a far better monitor HERE
Good luck smile.gif

the cpu and mobo are bundled it equals 100$
tats asking me to get an extra 50 - 60$ i dont think thats going to happen.
like ive mentioned a few times, psu, ram, mobo, CPU Cooler, will be upgraded later. (as well as the GPU, my buddy said when i go to upgrade he'll buy it.)

Drop that diablotech psu. grab a Antec Earthwatts. You could cause some serious harm to your parts by using a bad PSU.
