Will The HX850 Be Enough?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm going to build a new PC in a few months and just wanted to know if the HX850 is enough for it.


The Build:


Intel Core i7 920

Corsair TR3X6G1866C9DF 6GB (3x 2GB) (1866MHz) DDR3

Seagate 7200.12 Barracuda 1TB

Asus P6T

Samsung SH-S223B DvD Drive

eVGA GTX 260 Core 216 (55nm) SuperClocked 2 Way SLI


I want this system to last quite a long time, so would the HX850 be enough for that or would I need the HX1000?


Thanks for your help:):

plenty...and with the trend being components using less and less power, both in the way of cpu and vid cards, it should be good for some time to come as well....untill size/mounting/plug standards change. heh


....and why go for 3 midrange cards like that? You do know you get diminishing returns in most situations with a multi-card setup right? In otherwords 3x cards does not equal 3x the performance?


A couple 260's SLI'd would be OK since they are priced reasonable...but as far as getting a 3rd, I'd rather take the money and get 2 ATI 5850's and crossfire them, which should KILL 3x 260's. My 2 cents.
