I am a Mac guy with a new PC that I want to make better for gaming.
Currently the specs are:
i7 3.4 ghz processor
6 gigs DDR3 ram
ATI Radeon Hd 5679 1GB DDR5
I want to upgrade to a better video card, but need a better power supply before I can do that, so I was thinking of putting in this:
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Power Supply
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Power Supply (OCZ600MXSP) | Canada Computers
so I can run this video card:
Sapphire 100282XTREME Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme Edition Video Card - 1GB, GDDR5
Buy the Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme 1GB DDR5 Vidoe Card at TigerDirect.ca
I like the price of both and don't want to go any higher. I am a bit of a noob when it comes to hardware upgrades in a computer, so my questions may seem silly, but here it goes. Is the power supply above ok for this card? Is it an easy install?
Will I notice a huge bump in performance with the video card, coming from what I have already?
Cames I want to play are crysis, wow and second life
