in my old rig i only have a 17" crt monitor then upgraded to this 19" which is amazingly big to me...
can't even imagine the size of ur screen.... rolleyes.gif
no , im using a 19" widescreen monitor @ 1366x768 max resolution biggrin.gif..
and right now my gpu is a crappy GTS 450 DDR3....
Let me put it this way, my 30" computer monitor is bigger than my parent's 27" 720P HDTV. Along with being a much higher resolution.thumb.gif The GTS450 isn't a bad card but I'm sure the DDR3 RAM is holding it back a lot, some other GTS450s have GDDR5 RAM. So those games you mentioned are not playing very good I assume?

ill be posting my sig rig, in a couple of mins...
and oh, and one more thing, is the 7850 the strongest among the two? : 560 ti 448, hd 6950
and if i oc it? would it surpass the 570? or the 6970?
With a good overclock the HD7850 can give a stock GTX580 a run for its money. Case in point:
700

Not all HD7850s will be able to get that high but you get my point. Plus since we are talking about 1366x768 the argument is kind of silly but I'm just answering your question.biggrin.gif

You may find yourself CPU limited with that resolution.

well yeah, the ddr3 ram of the gts450 holds it back, i tried the ddr5 version and it runs some 720p games@playable fps.
anyways, im planning to oc the hd 7850 oc(lol), so it might even surpass the 580? haha i guess it's impossible...
but with my very low resolution, i guess this card is overkill.. am i right? tongue.gif

Change your PSU instead and OC your card, that would be sufficient, I guess..

Honestly speaking you wont be surpassing a gtx580, but a 7850 oc'd will get 570 performance with more vram which is great, even though vram wont make a difference at your resolution smile.gif and your psu will be fine since you'll only be drawing like 200-250w max.

thanks for the reply..
He likely ment that you should buy a psu of better quality smile.gif wattage wise your psu would be overkill even if you would get 2 7850's, but some psu's give you less watts than advertised, or are just bad quality units in general. But as I already said, since you'll be pulling like 1/3 of the wattage your psu is rated at, you ought to be just fine tongue.gif

And yes, the said cards are indeed overkill for your resolution, but a oc'd 7850 will eat through skyrims and battlefields on higher resolution without problems.

Edit: btw I saw your other thread about 560ti448 vs 7850. If you want physx, I think you could use the nvidia card you have atm for physx. There should be a guide on how to do it over here in ocn.

Well a 7850 CAN surpass some GTX580 that are overclocked to.
An overclocked 7850 is more or less on par with an overclocked GTX580.
It sure beats a stock GTX580 easely.

Look at the score's in these threads.
http://www.overclock.net/t/872945/top-30-3d-mark-11-scores-using-performance-settings
and
http://www.overclock.net/t/1235557/official-top-30-heaven-benchmark-3-0-scores

Look up my name in the lists, beat some GTX580 machine's and got beaten by some other GTX580 machine's
The 7850 is more or less on par with a GTX580.


Btw OP, with a 7850 you dont have to change the PSU and will last you forever on that resoluton, i myself would have taken the 7770 for that monitor you have and saved some money.
