x4 630 + HD 5670 + 4GB

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Here's the PC one of my friend wants to buy ; http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16883229193

He's looking forward to max out any game at the resolution of 1920x1080.
I looked at some benchmarks and videos, I can confirm that it does run games pretty good at that resolution.
For exemple ; Crysis at 1920x1080, Gamer, about 20 fps.
GTA IV ; 1920x1080, maxed (detail and draw distance , idk), about ~30 - 40fps.
Mafia 2 ; 1920x1080, maxed, about ~45 fps.

Just to be sure I'm not missleading him, I'd like your opinions.

P.S.
Now for myself, do you think an i3 530 @ 2.93Ghz , 6GB DDR3, 300w PSU and an HD5670 would be good for 1080p gaming (intel H57 MB) ? (30 fps would be alright)

Thank you.

Not really..I would go for at least the 5770 if you want playable rates at 1080p.
Also, I would look for at least a decent quality 500W unit for future upgrades.
30FPS is not as playable as you'd expect, especially when frame rates start dipping into the low 20s.

He's on budget.
It's the only PC in a good price range we've found.
Can you give me some benchmarks(at 1920x1080) that associates with this PC?

P.S.
And what about my setup?

In addition, that PC is out of stock.
Prebuilt PCs (whether using OEM parts or custom built parts) usually don't have the best parts/quality. I make a lot of custom build suggestions on OCN and can make a decent $600 PC (with $600 I can fit in a Phenom II x4, decent video card (HD 5770 performance or more, decent 2x2GB DDR3-1600, etc.)

Are you in the Vancouver or Toronto area? If so, two propositions I might have for you:
1. Shop from www.ncix.com. They overall have better service in my opinion/experience, local pickup in metro Vancouver & Toronto areas (no shipping cost), a great parts selection, and even price match so you can still get your parts at the Newegg price or whatever.
2. I get back home in Vancouver in around 5 days, if you and your friend are in the Vancouver area I might be able to help with the primary parts selection and maybe even the assembly process if you do so wish

About your setup, the i3 is a potent gaming CPU; you may need more than 300W to run that with an HD 5670; LGA1156 is a dual channel platform, you do not want to be running 3x2GB as you will be running single channel and losing performance.

Get AT LEAST the 5770, if not, 5750. My card is slightly slower, I can give some benchmarks that pretty much sum up the worst performance you can get. The 5670 isn't a very good gamer, and Mafia II maxed out is VERY demanding. GTA 4 is primarily CPU/GPU dependent on RAM, so the more the better.

We're in Quebec.
We found a better one, thanks to your site ; http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...facture=NCIXPC

For my setup, how can I be sure that an HD5670 fits in my PC?
I have pictures of it, I currently own an HD4350, I just want to replace it.
I have asked people about running it on a 300W, they said it would be ''ok'',
it should need more though.
I'm very limited, I have 170$.

The card is about 100$, with the 60-70$ left, what can I do?
A better PSU?
How can I be sure it will fit and all the plugs fit?

-Thank you.

You will probably be fine with a quality 300W power supply. NCIXPCs are great choices actually, just not all parts are necessarily the best. You may want to go with a custom-config NCIXPC (accessible from NCIX's home page) for better parts selection.

So, would it work?

CPU: i3 530 @ 2.93Ghz
RAM: 6GB DDR3 (1333Mhz)
GPU: HD 5670 or HD5770
HDD: 1TB
OS: Win 7 64bit
Motherboard: Intel H57

But my main priority is that it fits in on my motherboard.

Here's 2 pictures of my motherboard, do you think it could fit? ;






Thank you.
