My hopely soon to be budget pc build - Page 2

Thread Starter 
Huh... I might actually wait for the gtx 760, i heard it will cost the same as the gtx 660. Do you guys think my amd fx 6300 will bottleneck the 760?

Also how much do you think the gtx 600 series will cost once the price drops?

7850 > 660
7870 > 660 TI

+ free games

What you should be looking at in a budget build. Also a member here compared a stock 7870 to a stock 660 ti and the 7870 was faster. Also 7870's overclock A LOT more.

AMD tends to be a bit better in the $/performance bracket. HERE is something you might want to see. If I were you, I would wait until AMD launches the 8000 series to get a graphics card if you do get an AMD card. Apparently they're getting launched in the next quarter. Also, never EVER get a 2.5" hard drive for a desktop unless it's a solid state drive (since that's the only size they come in). 2.5" drives are more expensive and don't have the same performance as their bigger counterparts. I will recommend you get a WD10EZEX (1 TB WD Blue). It's under $70 and has speed to rival the WD Black and I think even the VelociRaptor (but don't quote me on that).
