Ok, so I'm building my first gaming desktop and need some advice. My first question is about the AMD Radeon 7850 2gb. I know it's one of the better graphics cards out there. I just need to know if it will perform well while playing lots of Steam games and Elder Scrolls at 1920x1080. Second question is about the i5-3450. I don't think I really need an i7 (please advise if I actually do) to run games efficiently. Also, do they work together well or does an Nvidia graphics card make a difference in this situation. Thanks for any input given.
