gpu for FX6100 and 2560x1440

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Need your opinions on several questions for my adobe workhorse rig.

1. What GPU would be enough to play high settings with 2xAA?
I dont need to max out games, I just want the same performance that my HD6850 gives me at 1600x900.

2. is my 500w PSU enough? http://www.aerocool.com.tw/strike-x/power-supply/80.html


I will most likely keep the cpu at stock because my board is only 3+1 phase.
I did put some mosfet heatsinks but I wont risk overclocking past 4.0 ghz.
My motherboard should arrive any day now from rma.

First of all a we as responders need a budget and a preference of brand, though I would recommend CUDA over AMD for CPGPU processing.
Usage wise and bandwidth wise(bottleneck in mind) with a 4170 I was able to reach 95% GPU usage in my 670 @ 1080p. So I guess practicality wise you should be looking at a 760 or 670 and if you have the money a 770. 4GB models will be more beneficial than 2GB when considering the 670 and 770 models.
EDIT; With a single card with TDP of up to 200W with %20-30 increase of that TDP (single 670-770) you should be fine.

budget wont be more than $250 for the card.
I dont have a preference for any brand. In the past ive just bought whichever card gave more performance at its price range.
HIS HD 7870 IceQ Turbo 2gb is on sale here locally for $230 while the GTX760 is around $280

To be frank, I don't think a Pitcairn 7870 will give you the experience you're hoping for at that res unless you're looking to play older, less demanding games. If you can stretch your budget a bit I'd aim for a 7950, but I have no idea what those go for in the Philippines.

Edit: Your PSU should be fine btw.

Uhh just saying but I guess it would be a little faster but way lighter on your wallet. The radeon hd 6970 is $150 on newegg

The 7870 will be great for in that price range for GAMING, but that is all. If you truly want a GPU for computing then CUDA will do much better than stream processing. If this is mostly for gaming then I recommend an ATI card, but if it is mostly for computing I would be looking at whatever nVidia card is in your price range. In this case 660-660ti or possibly 750Ti depending the prices in your area.

And this! If you are planning on gaming then it would not be that bad of an idea to stretch for a 7950. But as I said CPGPU function wise you have to be looking a nVidia.

EDIT; spelling.

I havent thought of using older cards. used HD6970s also go for around $150 here
looks like the pitcairn 7870 and 6970 are neck to neck in performance http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/548?vs=509

this is the cheapest 7950 ive found at $298

is the cost all right or is it overpriced?

I use my rig for both work and gaming but to be honest, the acceleration provided by videocards in some programs are not noticeable so it doesnt matter.
I guess I will stick with ati then, unless i find a really good deal on a 660ti

That price isn't bad. 7950s go for ~$260-300 over here as well.

If you're not planning on WCing though you'll probably want to spring for a custom cooled card. Those AMD blowers can get extremely loud.
