Which one should I choose?

So I was wondering about your thoughts on these two cards for this build, specifically which one I should use.


case and hdd aren't included, I have many already.





Well... get a fx 6300 with a 7850. The 6300 is alot better for a few bucks more.

For just a little bit more, you can get a PowerColor 7870 XT, which while it isn't as good of a quality card, compared to the Asus ROG cards, it is still more powerful than either of those, and is only abour $210 right now.

Also, invest in a Lepa G650 instead of that S12II; the Lepa is better built, has a lower ripple, is more efficient, and is only a few dollars more.

The reason I am looking at these cards is that they are much cheaper at present compared to the next step up in cards.




Not a bad build at all.

Although I'd probably just get Windows 8 through torrents and spend that cash on something else. I'm not a fan of piracy but Windows 8 just isn't worth paying for :P

Alright, I just prefer not to torrent, if I can get a copy through one of my connections then ill update.

if you don't mind dealing with rebates you can get windows cheaper http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8237594&CatId=306 (i came out to around $50 to get the money in a reasonable ammount of time)
