Hi Guys

I have recently been looking into getting the Radeon HD 7770, and was wondering weather for a £100 budget it was worth a purchase. From looking through hundreds of benchmark sites, I have personally come to the conclusion that it is a great price for a reasonably high end video card. What do you guys think?

System Specs:
CPU: Intel i7 2600k 3.8ghz
RAM: 8gb
PSU: 500 (read next paragraph)

-if you need any others just ask-


Another note, I now have enough money to be able to buy this video card, however I was wondering what PSU would run well with it. Would really appreciate some ideas, and maybe links to a few well priced, and good power supplies.

Thanks - Smyth :p

Not a problem. Where you really see things picking up is with the 660Ti from nvidia its a pretty decent jump up from the 660 it rivals the 7950.

The 7870 and the 7950 are pretty close to one another. I would personally choose the 7950 because of its higher ram and memory bit.

I did a random search of all the cards I think end up in the next tier beyond the 7850 and the 660 Non-Ti for you. I placed the 670 in there because its a higher end card and you can see how it stacks against the others the 7970 would of been included however it is a little more expensive then the 670. I sorted by price so you can see by the lowest to highest...

Hi there, thanks for the reply, really appreciate it, and the brand for my PSU is: Win+ Power 500W maximum

If this isn't good enough, I would sort of like to know what power supplies would do the trick!

Thanks again - Smyth
