HD7850 2GB - best settings

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
What are the best settings that I can apply on this card? AA, VS, etc, etc.


Here's the whole rig btw:

Motherboard: ASUS P8B75-V, B75
CPU: Intel i5-3470, 3.20Ghz, 6MB, BOX, LGA1155
RAM: 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600Mhz
GPU: SAPPHIRE 2048M HD7850 DDR5 PCI-E 3.0 /BULK/
HDD: WD 1TB Caviar Blue
PSU: Seasonic SS-620GB Bronze, 620W



My monitor sucks though. Still using 4:3 resolution until I get my new Dell or something, although this is not relevant.

If your talking about gaming, there is no answer to that as my visual setting will be different from yours. Best thing to do is fire up a game with some type of fps meter. Run everything at maximum and then scale back things until you attain a minimum of 30fps in most conditions, Also, the higher the resolution, the more taxing it is on you card. Don't expect the setting that you have on 4:3 stay fluid when you hit 16:9 as your video card has more to render.

Depends on the game.

 

Also it actually depends a lot on your monitor. Resolution at least. I'm pretty sure you should max out most games on a 4:3 screen (assuming 1440x1080 or lower). Too much AA is unnecessary though, usually 2xSSAA or 4xMSAA on good texture quality is the sweet spot.

Which AA is the best in my case? Or that also depends on the game? I don't want to lose FPS, but I want quality picture too. I guess I just have to wait for the new monitor, or i dont know.

EQAA (AMD) or CSAA (nVidia) are one of the most efficient forms of anti aliasing. FXAA (nVidia) and MLAA (AMD) are the least expensive but may blur too roughly and reduces image quality. SSAA is the most expensive, but gives the best result (only rivaled by downsampling) and usually only needs ~2 samples.

When you say expensive.. you mean it eats a lot of resources?

Btw, what connector is better to use for connecting GPU to PSU? 6 pin PCIE or 8pin? And btw, I have 6pin/8pin 600mm and 6pin 570mm - what's the difference and which one should I use?

Doesn't really matter. IIRC a 7850 only needs a single PCI-E 6pin plug. Either 6 pin would be fine. I would imagine the 6 pin looking better than the 6+2pin.

I just opened the case only to figure out that the man who assembled the PC has chosen to use the 6+2 one. So it doesnt matter then? No limitations whatsoever? I've heard that more pins = more power?
