    Yes, but I can't order online and I also don't live in the US and buying locally gives me few options which are sometimes expensive. And I thought the GTX295 was a single GPU card, and the X2 variant is the dual-GPU? Correct me if I'm wrong. Because someone's posted a new GTX295 for sale which is MUCH cheaper than a 260X, although someone else could have bought it by now. As long as the card can run in any normal case I'm fine with it. Power requirement is also sorted. I could buy the GPU now as I have the money for it, and buy the rest later.
    EDIT: GTX 295 was sold. What about a GTX 470 or any old GPU that's better than 7770?

    I'll probably be gaming at resolutions like 1024x768 or 800x600 to increase the refresh rate on my monitor, and also at highest settings and I need something just a little bit better than a 7770 and at least something like an A8-5600K because I don't usually play games. At my low resolution will a 7770 suffice for 60fps+ with multiple vehicles if the CPU is an i5 or above? I'm trying to save as much money as possible for this build.

    I'd like to hear your fps estimates on these configurations, and the bottleneck in each. My goal is to have above 60fps with 2 cars. Thanks very much:D

    Athlon II 750K @Stock and 4GHz (just an A10 without GPU)
    HD 7770

    FX-6300
    GTX 470

    i5-4xxx
    HD 7770/GTX 470

    Nehalem i7/Xeon W3520
    GTX 470

    i5 750
    R7 260X/7770

    I trust that a low-clocked i5/i7/Xeon will not suffer from a significant performance dip?

    P. S. I currently use 4GB of RAM, but will I need more to achieve a smooth framerate? Is it enough for more than 2 cars?

    EDIT: GTX 295 was sold. What about a GTX 470 or any old GPU that's better than 7770?

    Again, thank you everyone so far for advice.

    i5 750+ HD7770, 3+ cars, how would this go? Would it make any difference if I added a GTX 470/480/R7 260X and/or if I overclocked the CPU?

    Someone I know has offered to sell me the i5 750+motherboard for a very cheap price, that's why I'm asking.

    Like I've said before, the 260x/7790 is better than the 7770, and the 7770 will do quite well. The i5 750 is not overclockable AFAIK and is a rather poor performer, but that might all change in the race update. My i7 870 was the top of the line quadcore of the ix xxx gen and it only likes 1 or 2 cars.

    Is a FX-6300 worth it over the i5 750? I'm asking because nI want to run multi-car derbies

    Also, my father might replace is 1080p monitor and I also sometimes play games like Minecraft and TF2, so is the GTX 580, 470, 480, and R9 270 worth their money over the 7770?

    I think the user hati on here has an fx 8350 and says that does well. I imagine an fx 6300 would just run a couple less cars.

    edit: he has an older amd cpu but i recall him saying that it ran the game well somewhere on here

    I know at 1080p with the moonhawk driving around DRI I was getting 80fps with my 3770k @4.5ghz cooled and a 4gb 770 From EVGA. 1.2ghz

    Search Ebay for a second hand GTX 480, I got one with a custom cooler that provides temps of 60c MAX for $120 shipped. Great Physx card to help with my GTX 670, also a great card for primary GPU, tested it on BF4 1080p and it maxed it out with nice FPS.

    Exactly, I've been keeping my eye on one for so long, but I wonder if it'll last until I am financially prepared.

    ************

    My father's offered to sell me his i5 750 and motherboard when he upgrades, it'll probably be a very cheap price, so is it enough if I want to derby with 3 or 4 cars? (possibly more) or is a FX-6300 better suited?

    I have Fx-6300 with Amd 7870 and i just tried dryrock island with Moonhawk and fps were between 22-30 fps with all max and 1680x1050 :)
    grandmarshall gives tops 40fps

    Some general misconceptions being passed around here.

    Firstly, making decisions hardware decisions based on early release software that doesn't appear to have more than a single codepath yet isn't exactly a comprehensive approach, nor would I call it wise. Secondly, PhysX is completely irrelevant. Thirdly, cpus were historically integer compute unites (cores) with essentially floating point co-processors. A great many cpu oriented tasks are still and will remain integer op-focused, while a good portion of game code often requires floating point. Know what component in your system offers orders of magnitude greater floating point performance than your comparatively anemic CPU FPUs?? Your gpu! Moving forward with modern code schemes indicates that a CPU's fpu is merely a midpoint between actually utilizing the hardware that is best suited to the task at hand. CPUs and integer ops are intrinsic.

    What has already been mentioned on several occasions by the developers of this title? Offloading portions of the workload to the GPU through opencl!

    I suggest you look into what system is going to provide the highest integer op cpu capabilities combined with the highest opencl gpu performance if you want to be future proofed for *modern* software.

    'wow', 'starcraft' and other unnecessarily CPU FPU heavy games need not apply, as they are examples of highly outdated software that is nearly as pointless and misleading as cinebench.

    You know your stuff but these people on here aren't all experts best thing to do is just recommend hardware that fits their criteria and budget.

    Xeon processor is the best price/power mix you are looking for:
    00b5d53ac0c61a217916f4269cd192cc.png

    Just look at this performance rating for games on Full HD.
    Xeon E3 1230v3 is 1% slower (mostly) then i7 4770K, but you save more then 100$ on the CPU if you use Xeon, not the i7.
    You can OC little bit also the Xeon.

    Get a decent graphic like 270 and you are done.

    I think that people came to a decision multiple times on this thread about Xeons. Can't remember but I know people are gonna be on you for mentioning it again.

    I would give a six-core AMD a try. I'm running a quad-core AMD Phenom X4 II, 4 GB Ram and a ASUS HD 6670, I can run this on Medium-High at 30-50 FPS on most maps. My computer is 3 years old and my Graphics card is 1 year old and the only trouble I have is with the Monnhawk on any setting runs at 15-25 FPS no matter what I do and the Big Box van which runs about the same. If you are running to run O/C then your Graphics card can be a lot cheaper. I run mine at full O/C according to the ASUS GPU Tweak. I hope this helps.

    My 560m gets decent fps so I'd guess the gt560 would handle beam well

    GTX 650 and similar GPUs seem to work great, and in fact they're probably overkill unless you're on the highest graphical settings. I've got two 4-core Xeons (old ones), and that's more than enough processing power. Just use an Intel CPU, not an AMD. AMD CPUs are very slow, despite their impressive-looking clock speeds.

    The difference will be big - mostly because of your CPU upgrade. The CPU you have right now is holding back the 7770 a lot.

    OP hasn't logged in for 2 months nor replied to this thread in 5mo. Let's leave it dead until OP proves s/he isn't.

    And an AMD A10 would likely run this game faster than your old Xeons. They're not slow, they're not the fastest, but definitely not slow.

    I'm sorry, but that's bull shit. They're very slow ? All of 'em are ?
