AMD Athlon II x2 250 + HD7750

Hi!

Iwant to upgrade my computer because it cannot run newer games(like Batman Arkhan City, NFS The Run, Crysis 2).

I currently have this setup:
Processor: AMD Athlon II x2 250 @ 3.6ghz
Video Card: Palit 9500GT 1gb
RAM: 4gb ddr2

I'm on a very low budget. I just want to buy a new video card and I'm currently thinking to get an HD7750.

Will the HD7750 work well with my CPU or will my CPU bottleneck it?

Would appreciate if you could give some cheaper alternatives for the HD7750.

THANKS!

Cheaper alternative for HD 7750 = HD 6850.
One notch higher than it but much cheaper due to older generation ..

It has higher power than HD 7770 and gives much better DX 9 performance (almost equal and slightly higher in DX10).

Rest (your savings) you can invest in a good CPU ..

I looked it up in my local stores. The 6850 still costs more than the 7750 here in my country. It really sucks how they price computer components here. Thanks for the insight btw.

Then you might want to go for HD 7750. :) 
Still a very good GPU and as I said .. its DX10 performance is slightly lesser than HD 6850 (2-3 FPS)..

Go for it it won't disappoint you!

Thank you very much! :)  If it won't bother you. What CPU would you recommend? I'm planning on buying a better CPU after this. Thanks!

AMD Phenom X4 965 .. A very vast improvement from your old Athlon X2! :) 

Really awesome gaming CPU from AMD .. It retails for around $100 (HD 7750 retails for $98 Amazon)
