help! and hello guys! - Page 8

post #71 of 89
Thread Starter 
i think i'll go for the vapor-x 7950. the cooler is very efficient and its a bang for your buck gpu. the 770 leadtek may be 100$more than the 7950 tho.

but does the vapor-x 7950 performs well out of the box compare to the gtx770?

gpu overclocking seems so simple but cpu overclocking seems so complicated tongue.gif LOL! and bf3 dosent use much cpu so i might not consider overclocking it FIRST. but still will get the i5-4670k just incase i need 2 overclock.

the motherboard i'll look into it myself and ask for suggestions as soon as i compile my stuff.. thanks for the help guys :-)

Did you forget that overclocking might mess up your windows? rolleyes.gif
7950 is a solid decision.
I started with GPU overclocking too when i tried to get BF3 to run at ultra settings, its very simple, not many settings to fiddle around with, just volts and clock volts and clock biggrin.gif

I think you are relying too much on what people are telling you to buy and putting together a Frankensteins monster in your head.

I think you should take all of the basic suggestions (mid-range mobo, 7950, k series Haswell, etc) then do some research and come up with who makes the best that will fit your needs and expectations. Don't let us build your PC. You'll be much happier when it's done if you know that you did it (with a little help wink.gif)

You've got a lot of info already in this thread and there is a TON on the forum. I've been doing this for 18 years and my favorite part about it is that there is always new stuff to learn.

I agree with FatedFrenzy, a lot of good things is proposed, so whatever you decide, good luck wink.gif

Sapphire Vapor X is very good graphic card, quiet and reliable, very good basic OC potential thumb.gif

Sapphire HD 7950 Flex, very good memory OC potential.

Well everybody is free what to choose, isn't it? In my country GTX 760 is at a great price and performs better than 7950. Not to mention that 760 is a newer card. But money are yours, so you decide with what to go with. wink.gif

@sando99, you look like a reasonable man wink.gif

Race is not fair between AMD and Nvidia, eventually all consumers pay.

Well, my advice is to get the cheaper card. smile.gif

The difference between those cards is around 10% less or more depending of the application.
I would go with the 7950 as it's a lot cheaper in my country at least.
Not being a fanboy and trying to push OP to get AMD but just my two cents. The 760 is also a solid card tho

I agree with them, choose your parts with what you learned. But it would be a good idea to post your final build so we can give a last opinion smile.gif.

And between the gtx 760 and the hd 7950 you can't make a bad choice if they have similar price where you live. They are very close to each other so just choose whichever one you prefer.
