I present to you my new pc i bought for gaming. I want you to tell me if i will run everything in ultra settings for at least 1 year from now.
Mobo: Asrock 970 Extreme4
CPU: AMD FX 8120
GPU: ATi HD 7850
Case: Corsair Cabridge 300R
PSU: CoolerMaster GX 550w
RAM: Kingston 8GB 1600MHz Hyperx
My resolution is 1680x1050.
Thanks in advance homies!
For the FX8120 i have a benchmark site that compares this processor
with other amd and intel processors
I am using myself a ati 6950 which performs very well in max payne 3 and other new games.
So i bet a 7850 will do the same.
Psu 550 watts is good.
The asrock 970 i am not familiar with, but no doubt will do its job.
8GB ram is good also especially when using windows 64 bit operating systems.
As with all hardware its hard to tell if its future proof
speed wise , since games always get more demanding.
hope that helps a bit
happy gaming with your new pc
Other than that, as said not all software or games are the same and require different hardware to work flawlessly. So in the whole it will work ok, but with latest titles like Max Payne 3 it won't due to the GPU not being the best.
Hi Craver, if you don't mind me asking,How much did your rig Cost you? just curious thats all,i also hope your new rig serves you well,i must add i have always used Nvidia they seem to be so good for one reason or another,i suppose for a lot of members they don't care what GPU is installed as long as the rig works, lol so good luck with it all.
Ati 7850 (or 7870 which i might take) wont do the job for games like maxpayne 3 in 1680x1050 resolution??? You are the first guy on every tech forum/site that tells me that!
I don't know though.
All ATI cards have to use software emulation for Phsyx and CUDA, because the cards have no hardware for those, so thats extra GPU and CPU resources needed for that.
Just trying to get you ready for a disappointment when you try at full settings and wonder why there is lag and perhaps some bugged shading etc.
