Do you have the DX11 update and the high res texture packs?  It makes a huge difference in the look of the game but it does take a performance hit of course.

I'll install them later on and let you know. Don't think I have them as it looks like you have to seek them out on the web individually (they don't install with the Steam bundle)

Hi guys, I'm planning on upgrading my rig with a new power supply for a planned HD7970 purchase in the near future, is the Antec High Current Pro 850W a good buy for $200, or can I do better?

Also, the psu is capable of outputting 40A per rail, but what is its total amp output? Where can I find info like that?

The HD7970 is quite power efficient. Either way, this is enough http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139012&Tpk=corsair%20hx650w The Corsair HX series is extremely good. Although it may look like 650w isn't enough, and that you might want 750w, the 750w version can actually be passed as a 900w power supply, but they sell it as 750w so they can get the Gold certification. 

$200 is NOT a good price btw. If you look here, the 750w model of the High Current Pro series might not actually be 80PLUS Gold. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Antec-High-Current-Pro-750-W-Power-Supply-Review/1632/7/

What's the rest of your rig specs? Even if you have a overclocked i7 you can get away with a good 650watt psu which will be plenty. The Corsair HX series is pretty good.

Here's is my current rig:

Monitor: HP LCD w2207 @ 1680x1050 (recycled from my old Vista HP Elite from 2007)
mobo: Asrock z77 Extreme4
cpu: Intel Core i7 3770k
PSU: Corsair Builders Series CX600V2
gpu: Gigabyte HD6850 OC 1GB
Soundcard: Asus Xonar Essence STX
Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212+
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 1600 2x4GB
Case: Cooler Master HAF912+200mm Cooler Master top fan
Disc Drives: 2 Samsung generic dvd/cd combo's
HDs: OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SATA III SSD in AHCI and Seagate 1TB Barracuda HD (installed seperately)
mechanical daskeyboard

I'm willing to pay extra for something that's fully modular, which is why I was looking at the Antec. I had some trouble routing the cables on the Builders series, and the sata power connector on my hard drive actually broke from the stress. It works now, but I'll have to replace that with a 2tb Barracuda when I buy the psu. For a single card setup I know that 650W is enough, but the 40A max power of my Builders series is not.

I would appreciate if someone can advise me on this. I'm stuck on whether or not should I get a 27" 2560x1440 panel.

I currently use a 21.5" 1920x1080 panel.

 

Primary usage is movie watching, gaming (occasionally) and coding. I like two things about the 27" panel:

1)  The pixel size is smaller than the panel I have.

2)  Screen real estate. Especially useful when you want to have multiple documents open for reference etc.

 

So is it worth the $$??

yes, but it is kind of crappy. This is what I had after my last mod. I have been working on the wires and cleaning everything up since then, so forgive the poor condition of the rig.

Most likely, yes. I see people dump bundles of money getting 4 GTX 690's with custom 12-way SLI drivers but have fail monitor setups. I would advise buying from a place with a 30-day return policy or something of the like, if you decide you don't want it. You should try it for sure.
