Choosing A Video Card (6770 or 7770) - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
the A/FM1 option is cheaper.
I can switch to an Athlon II x4 651 for the same price.

In the end, this computer is ending up being used more by my parents, and I'm only going to keep the video card. The A series seemed logical.

The 7770 comes very close to 6870 on light DX11 gaming sessions (http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_radeon_hd_7750_and_7770_review,21.html).

However on more taxing or high-setting games, 7770 drops down to somewhere of the 6770 performance, to the point that it's barely showing any difference between the two. (http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_radeon_hd_7750_and_7770_review,19.html)

I'd say if you are going with cost-efficient, try the 6770. If you want power-efficient and less heat release, head right on with 7770.

In the http://www.custompcguide.net/radeon-vs-nvidia-gaming-graphics-cards-round-up-let-the-right-one-in/ article also mentions that two 7770 give the processing power of that GTX 570 (close to 580) and the 6970, but cheaper.

do not go with fm1. the socket is dead. i would go with fm2 and get the a10. that way, your parents get a good all around processor, and a live socket. i would go with a 4870X2 for pure gaming performance, or a 7770 for lower power draw, lower heat, lower noise, and just over all newer architecture
