Radeon HD 7790 Review

Radeon HD 7790 is a fast-middle-class/performance graphics card based on the 28nm, GCN architecture.
It's based on the Bonaire XT Core and therefore offer 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs on a 128-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1000MHz and the memory clock will operate at up to 1500MHz. It consumes up to 85 Watt.
This Graphics Card is added one year after the Radeon HD 7000 Series to compete against NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 650 Ti and benchmarks indicate its performance is between 3 and 7% better. However, NVIDIA is also set to release a new graphics card called GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition which is expected to be up to 10% better than GeForce GTX 650 Ti and so it will outperform this card.
With the release price of 150 USD, AMD's Radeon HD 7770 might become obsolete. This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a strong Dual Core CPU.

I've had an old PSU (Huntkey CP300) for 6 years. I'm planning to upgrade my HD 4670 to HD 7790. 4670 is 65W and 7790 is 85W. Do you think that PSU can run my PC with new games from now on? I hear the 7790 can consume up to 150W.

I don't think that it will be enough considering the power consumption of the card and the age of you psu. I had a 450W psu and my system run with no problems for a year. After that I upgraded my cpu, motherboard and ram so I though I change my psu as well. Also I would strongly recommend that you go for a lower tier card cuz this one is going to be bottlenecked by your cpu and ram.

I also have plans to upgrade my Ram to 4gb and to 6gb if possible. My friend gives me the 7790 so it's not my place to refuse it :D. My budget isn't very big so I think buying a Corsair VS550W PSU first is the right choice :). Thanks :).

No problem! I had an i5 750k which has about the same performance as the Athlon X4 760K and my system ran great. Hope you get the system soon.

I had a 450W and a i5 750k. I did not come across any problems. But I would recommend a 500W.

You would be able to run even on 350W PSU, a system with this card would consume 250W.

Well you will not have a problem with your cpu. But I will need your psu. I would suggest a 500W+.

I would say this just because it's newer so the tech is more advanced. But if I'm wrong feel free to correct me.

I don't think so. You know, it wil increase the perfomance, but not a lot… Because, the onboard gpu of your CPU is a good one (for been onboard) and you won't notice a great difeference, you would even go better making an Hybrid Crossfire

(especial feature of the APU family) with a 6670. It's cheaper and in my opinion it would work better.
