    -Cabinet: -Cooler Master Elite RC-335-KKR5-GP (with 500W extreme power supply)

    -Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon HD5670 512MB DDR5 PCI-E 2.0


    USAGE: the system is gonna be used mainly for playing FIFA, PES.

    the HD 4200 will be too slow for gaming, the 5670 itself is fairly low end for games.

    just as a heads up, the power supply coming with that case is likely fairly low quality - if it comes with a case, its not gunna be very good.


    i'm moving this to system builders advice, you'll likely get better help there.

    Granted you're gonna play only fifa or pes, the card would be fine, but I'd at least shove in a 5770 in there, since this year it seems ea is giving us pc users the next gen *cough* engine. And I agree, free psu's smell like trouble, wherever they come from.

    5770 ftw. Will you only play footie games with it? If thats the case and you want to save cash, get the 4770, cause these games aren't demanding. Your purse is your best bet, how much are you willing to throw in?

    personally, i think all coolermaster PSU's are trash.


    5770 is by far the better video card choice, its quite good.

    I dunno about their really high end, but I agree with Mussels on most of their PSUs. Seasonics, Corsairs or Enermaxes would be a much better choice.

    even a corsair 450W would power your system perfectly, and be much better quality than even a 600W coolermaster.

    the other parts seem quite good, except you may be able to save money on the ram. brand doesnt matter there really, as long as you get 4GB of DDR3 1333Mhz, the rest doesnt matter - get some cheap stuff, as long as the warranty is decent.

    That would be harsh, granted they cranked out a lot of bullshit, the one I have hasn't failed me (pretty cool since it was a gift) Maybe its just luck.

    I'd say a 5770 too, but since fifa and pes aren't that graphics demanding games, the 4770 would be fine. Since they are console ports, he'd be good for another couple of years (till consoles decide to go *next gen* again)

    Even the CX400 will power that rig without complaint....unless he plans to CF down the road. Then again, I run a pair of 9600GSOs (G92 based) on a CX400.

    console ports means the games you're playing were made for the Xbox or playstation, and then ported (converted/translated) to PC.

    since those consoles are based on outdated hardware, they tend to not take much power for a PC to games ported from them.

    to comment on what assaulter said in the post below mine, while a 4770 will have enough power, the 5770 is newer - its going to be more power efficient, faster, and last longer before you need to replace it.

    I play these games each year, its good when you have 2 brothers in the same house! Back to your question, these games are made for the consoles in mind, then ported for the pc. I have a 9800gt, pretty old by todays standards, and it still rapes these games at over 100fps @ 1920x1080 all settings max. So you really don't need a uber graphics card to play them. And since the 4770 you said you're aiming for is pretty much on par with the 9800gt, it would be enough.

    @assaulter_99: okay i got that...
    actually HD5770 is way over my budget...so i hv to choose between HD4770 and HD5670...but HD4770 is not compliant to DirectX11 while the other one is...

    I m really confused...so please suggest me...if there is some better option available for the same or less price for my requirements please let me know...

    To reiterate, you won't need dx11 to play either pes or fifa. Now if you want to play other games which are dx11, you'd want the 5770, but bear in mind all dx11 games are backward compatible, so it won't be so much a problem, especially since you say you are cash strapped. What budget do you have for a card? suggest a number and we'll kindly advise. ;)

    the games you've mentioned dont use directX 11.


    if i had to choose between those two, i'd probably go the 5670.

    It really depends on the CoolerMaster in question. The new CoolerMaster GX series are better than a lot of stuff Corsair are putting our these days. The CM silent pro M isnt bad either.

    But yes the CM that comes with the "Cooler Master Elite RC-335-KKR5-GP" case is bound to suck.

    The OP should buy a seperate PSU whether a enthusiast CoolerMaster or another brand.

    definitely need more ram in that older system, but otherwise it may well be enough for the games you've mentioned.
