Radeon HD 7790 Sapphire OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon HD 7790 Sapphire OC Edition is a special edition of the performance Radeon HD 7790.
This edition comes with a cooling solution that uses a dual heatpipe system. It also comes overclocked out of the box in the core-clock to 1050MHz and on the memory clock to 1600MHz, though the latter might prove useless, as this card might not benefit from extra bandwidth.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card.

It will be a nice system :). But also your Phenom II X4 970 can handle a little higher end card like a GTX 760 or Radeon R9 280 :)

Hhhhmm.. An i3-4130 or any AMD Quad core CPUs would do fine. But I do recommend that you get an I5 right away. Let me explain, if you buy an i3-4130 you'll spend like $130, but if you get an i5 it'll just be around $200. So if you get an i3 then upgrade to an i5, you'll be spending about $330. Unless if you get the i5 right away. My opinion :)

there is not such thing as gpu bottlenecking the cpu. the cpu is powering the gpu and not vice versa.

of coarse u can it is a better gpu for games and it has the extra 1gb u will need in future and bottleneck will be less due to having extra 1gb. also price is right for a card for this price range :)

To upgrade from the HD7770 to this is rather pointless I'm afraid. If you want to upgrade, go for a HD7850 or even the HD7870, but otherwise it isn't worth it.

nick if u going geforce route i would get at least 770 cause the 750 is waste of money when u can save the extra that been said? scott has no idea about the 7790 :( it is a great card for the price and i did have 7770. so i know what i am talking about :) it is not underpowered for it is price and power usage is around 100 watts. so it is perfect for u :)

Excuse me? You're trying to get this guy to pay $150 for a card that is only 10 - 15% more powerful than the one he already has? That is ridiculous! I stand by what I said, and he should get at least a HD7850, preferably the HD7870 to justify the cost. Considering he doesn't want to consume more than 100w, he should just stick with what he's already got.

i thought they was half price now? cause here where i am it is not expensive at all? 7850 is older tech now and it is not worth its price cause of that. the 7790 has better tech :) even though 7850 is faster.

also scott u forgetting one thing… it is not always about the speed of the card. the faster the card the more it will use power… but with 7790 u have both less power consumption and decent speed. thats what makes it more efficient for it's price. for some gamers it is all they need :)

The HD7790 does not have better tech than the HD7850: if it did it would more powerful, but it isn't. No, they are not half price, although they are a little bit cheaper. Here the HD7850 is around $200, only $50 more for a card that is 20% more powerful.

tech does not make it faster. just adds better features. look up the card and see the features and compare before u make that statement dude… LOL!!! also when it comes to raw power 7850 tops. but when it comes to efficiency then 7790 tops. i think 7790 is a better buy for someone who wants to buy a card that does not need alot of power to do the stuff he or she wants :)

This GPU has no other features besides the extra card.
Now, you listen to me, and you had best listen well. You are trying to persuade this person to spend money on a card that does not offer extra performance of any significance, he does not need to upgrade, and nor does he want to waste his money just because someone who didn't know what he was talking about told him so. Do not take offense, but you are clearly not seeing reason or even considering what I'm saying. So, I shall make it perfectly clear: this person does not need to upgrade, and nor should he make such a worthless upgrade as this! The HD7770 already does everything this one can, consumes less power and only operates about 20 - 30 fps slower in games. If you continue to argue that this is the "best bang for your buck" when what he already has is actually better, then I give up. It's clearly impossible trying to make a point, so I won't even bother trying.

like i said it depends if he wants to play on the highest settings or not? i am only saying it is decent cause i have one and i had what he had before. sure if the price is not right fine i am not arguing with u. i am just saying and in most other countries it is best bang for buck. if u want a extra 1gb cause here u only get the 7850 with 1gb for more… not a 2gb clearly some games coming from now on do need the 2gb to get decent settings or slightly less bottleneck. that 1gb's do face today compared to a year ago 1gb was enough.
