Which config is better for gaming?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'll build a cheap desktop for my little brother. My budget is too limited and i need to choose one of these options

Pentium g860 + radeon 6870

Or

I3 2120 + radeon 6850

Or

One of these gpu + 7770

This will be a gaming pc, for call of duty smile.gif

Which one is better? More cpu? Less gpu?
Thanks smile.gif

Go with the i3 - its a stronger cpu, offers hyper-threading [which will be good in overall computing as well as newer games] - the 6850 isn't far behind the 6870 and are generally strong clockers.

by the way, can i use a 400w power for this configuration?

since psu calc's say me that 300w is enough, i think 400w power must be enough



i dont want to spend 15$ more for 500w power, if it is not necessary.

ps (i'll but i3- 3220 if asus h61 supports)
