post #21 of 96

The platform is ok because it supports AM3+, but the CPU is just an AM3.

It's a computer!

Hmm i will personally go with the 650ti Boost over the 7850, 1st its cheaper and it offers a better deal. the perfomance difference varies depending on the game and drivers, and well ultimately nvdia has way better drivers. + you get a you get a 75$ coupon

Do yourself a favor and read the bench mark results again. The only time the 650ti boost beats the 7850 is when it is in sli. So go and find 7850 crossfire compared to 650ti boost in sli and see what the bench results are.

Both ati and nvidia have their fair share of driver issues currently. The only time this matters is if you plan on playing every single title that exclusively plays better on one companies card/driver than the other, if not, well then you're stuck in a hole either way. Ultimately a moot point.

@ the OP. I'd suggest doing extensive research looking at both nvidia and ati cards in your budget with respect to the games you desire to play or applications that can make use of either cards features.

** little side note, the Capstone 650M is quite a nice psu, just had the pleasure of installing mine yesterday thumb.gif. Silent fan, the heft of a quality psu, decent sleeving, and so on.

But it seems like a lot of people here think you should use a different platform anyways.

My thoughts exactly on the SLI support, I recall reading a feedback in Newegg that he was able to SLI two cards but I will keep checking if it supports it or not.

Hmm after viewing the benchmarks it seems the 650ti boost only wins in battlefield 3, but in almost every other game the 7850 totaly crushes it, id say it worth the extra 30$ bucks.
post #27 of 96
The mobo does not support SLI. It only has 1 full size pci-e slot.

I say change the following...

CPU i linked
GPU i linked
PSU twocables suggested.

That will take this system to a whole different level and still keep you well under budget.

After you make the purchase, lets talk about OC'ing everything in your case...... biggrin.gif

Expansion / Connectivity
Slots - 2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (PCIE2 @ x16 mode; PCIE4 @ x4 mode)
- 2 x PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots
- 2 x PCI slots
- Supports AMD Quad CrossFireX™ and CrossFireX™

Copied from your link to asrock website.

Supports sli and xfire, however the 2nd card only runs @ pcie 2.0 x4, which wont make a huge difference on mid range cards.

here what a quick google search came up with if you are considering pcie 2.0 x4(say hi to linus for me wave2.gif) http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=vfXALgE7mVM#!
