Default Re: Best GPU?

Holysky,
Hey, thank you! That's something I could afford by next week!

I hope the price isn't a sign it's cheap. I read the little review/comment and it appears to be fine.

All I need is power and cables for the basics: a disc drive, motherboard, graphics card, and etc.

Now, I must ask what is the best manufacture (Asus, Powercolor, etc.) of the ATI 5770 that is great considering the price addition, or deduction?

Cheers,
Joshua

Good PSU, not truly 500w, but it will be perfect for OP.

foothead,
Thanks a whole lot for the comparison on some top manufactures.

I will now seek out to find the graphics card I crave.

Wish me luck, shouldn't take long. I will post a product link to see what you think and make sure this is a-okay.

Cheers,
Joshua

I forgot MSI. I would put them between neutral and awesomeness somewhere.

Anyway, here are a couple deals on the egg.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-317-_-Product for overclocking, this is the best ref. cooler.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-484-_-Product cheap, and expels heat out the back. ~10 degrees C warmer than the HIS though.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-330-_-Product extremely cheap, I doubt it has software voltage control, so no overclocking over ~900 MHz without a hard vmod.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-331-_-Product FREAKING AWESOME PRICE!!!! No soft voltage control though. ~900 MHz barrier will still apply.

Since your resolution is low, the last one is definitely your best bet. You really don't need the 1GB framebuffer, and it will free up some moneys for the PSU.

Would that be worth it? Is that the one?

nbrikha:
Of course, PSUs can be future proofed. If your going to add video cards, overclock, or transfer this psu to a future build...I'd go up to 700w range. A little more investment, but like I said, they do last a while. I still have a PSU from a computer I had 10 years ago.

I do not want that much Wattage. If I decide on a built, I will intent to purchase a new power supply. I do not have the room to expand with more graphic cards nor have the proper cooling to balance the power as foothead suggested, and I understand that rings true already:

foothead:
PC Power and Cooling and antec are good as well.

Cheers,
Joshua

CPU: No.
RAM: a little bit.
Resolution: No, this is not a bottleneck really. The cards are designed for higher, but they still give you higher framerates with lower ones.

In this case, I would actually get the powercolor 5750 I posted.

foothead,

So, this would be the card you are telling me?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-300-_-Product

Huh, I always knew I would end up with a PowerColor model.

Again, thanks for the help so far.

Cheers,
Joshua

Okay, that seems better. Even though the RAM is lower, that price brings it closer to my reach. Thanks mate.

Hey, I don't really have the proper equipment for this installation. Even though I haven't got the money to purchase anything yet, my RAM is coming soon, and I wanted to know if you could show me where I could purchase one of those wrist objects that take away your static charge and make it possible to handle computer parts better?

Plus, what conditions are best for computer fixes, and where can I find some of those dust grilles? Would it help to tape up the side vents? Or, perhaps just the fake style grilles on the very edge of the front of the computer that just have a hole to the inside?

Lots of questions, I know, but I am positive you are going to be a great computer help for me.

Cheers,
Joshua
