How would you define "really extreme gaming?"

Edit: Just saw the bottom... Yeah, sorry, but that rig is not going to play all the latest games on ultra. You're going to need something a bit beefier than a 7850. What's your max budget?

Greece.

I think its weird you said that the 7850 is not going to play all the games because on game-debate it was getting 10/10 rating.

Alright I got another idea what if I do crossfire with another card?

What res are they playing at? I think they're rating it more as a good card for the price range. It's not a bad card; just not going to handle "really extreme gaming."

Yes. But if you plan on playing at 1080p or any other higher res, go with a more powerful card. Same is true if you plan on going with a 2k, or even 4k texture pack.
