I have no idea what the difference is but I am trying to stay around $200 or less. I play WoW and a ton of FPS mainly. Left 4 dead, CoD. Etc... What do you guys recommend?

Also, what PSU do you recommend for the setup?

a 460 will be more than enough for you.

i would go with a corsair 650tx so that you can do a second 460 in sli if you ever need it.

Any good PSU will do. But it depends how much are you wanting to spend on a PSU?


And about the GPU here is the thing. You can buy a 460 and it will play everything you want ok at 1080p. But the smarter thing is to bite the bullet and get the 560 Ti which is 50 dollars more. It will last you MUCH longer and is a lot more powerful.


Some PSUs that would work great.

Wow I love this site. I have always came here for advice but this is my first time posting lol. I posted this on toms this morning and still no response lol!

So getting the 560 will be a better choice? Isnt it like 380+$? I dont want to fork over THAT much lol. Oh yeah and what is your advice on this monitor?

I have the Asus 460 Top for wow. Works great, never moves from 60fps. Plus it's quite quiet. If it's mainly for wow I'd spend the extra 50-70 somewhere else on the computer, it will still play most things at close to max settings.

I have only owned one thing in the past that was msi and it was a video card. It still works, I dont use at obviously being 3 years old lol. Why would you pick the 460 hawk over the 560 or other 460s?

since you all are smart and I dont want to double post. Would you mind if posted here? Good

I have a gigbyte ep45-ud3p motherboard
Intel core 2 duo e8400(not OC)
4 gb of ram ddr2 1066
HIS 1gb 125 or 256(bit) iceq4 hd 4670.

I am getting hiccups and down time in games. Especially wow. What should I upgrade? I have a $600 limit and that is for my monitor and video card and .......? Advice?

why the 460 vs 560 is there really that much of a difference? Also can someone suggest a setup for $300 for a cpu/mobo i5 2500k?
