post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I;m getting a new rig (full specs below) And I'm wondering... How well wou;d this perform in games? Would I be able to play most games high settings no problem? Would this rig last me for a while? How fast would it cut down my rendering time? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

-Intel i5 4570 (non K)

-AMD 7870 2GB GDDR5

-6GB RAM 1600MHz

-XFX 450W Core Edition 80+ Bronze PSU

-Fractal Design Core 1000 Case

-Asus B85M-G Motherboard Socket 1150 M-ATX

-Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO

-1TB 7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda

-Windows 8 (I don't mind this os, I use to hate, but now I'm starting to love it).

Those parts are overkill for such a small resolution. You'll max out pretty much any game with ease.

Thanks, I do have a 1080p Monitor, so if I changed to the 1080 how will it perform? Or if put them a dual monitor setup where I game on the 1080p monitor?

Honestly, with those specs you won't have to worry about upgrading for a while.

Pretty good rig but 8GB RAM seems to be the staple right now especially if you're going to be running a few background programs like multi-clients since you have a pretty good rig and the 7870 will cry without 8gb ram. That's really the only thing I can see to change...

Good luck smile.gif
