    7770 Crossfire is kind of silly, get 1 powerful card instead.
    Not sure what you are going to use the computer for but if you are mostly into gaming an Intel build would be better.
    850W is overkill, even with a power hungry FX-8350.

    The reason people point that stuff out , is because you can get better frames (Which you seem to obviously care about) for less.

    If you haven't bought the system already, don't. Unless you are literally being given it for free, or like... $200.

    That said, probably about 40-50fps depending on settings.

    EDIT: Actually probably a bit better, since its dual. But thats a lot of heat/power.

    Well I guess it is a bad thing to not wanting people wasting money, oh well.

    There is no way anyone can say what kind of FPS you would get with that machine without knowing what settings and resolution you will be running at.

    constructive criticism is not flaming

    and, yes, you will be much better of with a single card if you are going to stick with AMD, ask around, there are tons of issues with Crossfire compared to SLI

    Yes the system had already been bought and will be shipped in 2 days on the 17th, hence why i put the this over that thing. the CPU will also have liquid colling, and the case has large fans all around it, so it shouldn't be too bad of a build honestly. Yes I know something like a 560 TI would run better, however I bought what was available at the time. and honestly, anything will be very good over what I have now... in heroics, i run around 15-25 fps on LOW settings.... lol.

    Why do you order something you have no idea of how it will perform?
    As I said in my earlier post we need to know what settings you are going to use at what resolution to be able to estimate what kind of performance you are looking at.

    it will run much better than that, depending on the resolution of your monitor, you will be able to turn the graphics up to ultra, just dont go very high on the multisampling, keep shadows at medium or high, and put SSAO on low

    It's not a bad build, it's just 'eh' at best for the price. You made a previous thread and were advised to look into a better system build. Just because something is 'better' isn't really a good excuse to waste money/settle for less performance.
    however I bought what was available at the time
    Well, IBuyPower does have a pretty slim selection of upgrades. >.>

    sorry. I will be running 2 moniters at 1440x900 resolution each. 19 inch LCD's.

    With such a low resolution I think you should be able to push full ultra except for shadows. Your CPU will be the limiting factor in raids though.
    Should be 60FPS steady in most other situations.

    It was sarcasm, because IBuyPower has a massive selection, including better options that... dual 7770's. So saying "I bought what was available at the time" simply means "I didn't know what I was buying at the time". Regardless, offtopic.

    no, it means that I bought the best that my budget could afford. my budget was $1000 and if I had upgraded to say a 560 TI it would have been 1050ish. add shipping and it woulda been way too much.

    Actually you didn't mention you already bought this system in the OP so of course people are going to ask about it since there are better choices out there. Usually people come asking for advice about performance etc. BEFORE they buy stuff but of course you're entitled to do whatever you want. When you come asking here you should always be ready for (constructive) criticism.

    The PSU is questionable even though Superflower is behind it, not certified but hopefully it'll be fine. I realize you can't change the build now, just pointing out why it's important to ask before buying. GPU/CPU is gonna fine especially with your resolution, kinda weird to see two 1GB cards in CF though.
    CPU: Intel i5-3570k (4.5GHz) MB: ASUS Z77 Sabertooth (uefi 2003)

    I saw the title and just thought "with electricity"

    On a more serious note, there's a few things that suggest overclock to me but you haven't specified that. That'll obviously make a huge difference to FPS if you are...

    So are you planning to overclock it at all?

    Sadly, IBuyPower has an identical system with an i3-3220 (Which is as good as the FX-8350), and a 660ti video card, for the same price.

    sure, in a single threaded application, but in that same scenario, an i3 is as good as an i7-3960x or E5-2687

    otherwise, the fx-8350 is a much better chip than the i3
