Hello, recently I`ve been thinking about buying a new gpu for my desktop, which is a XFX HD 7870 Core edition. I would like to play next gen games at full hd at high settings( not ultra). I don`t really need the "60 fps" thing but i do want to be able to run most of the upcoming games at around at least 35fps. Until here everything seams ok, but there is a problem: My cpu is not very powerfull and i fear I might not be able play next gen titles with it. It`s an old Pentium G 850 2,9Ghz CPU. The problem is that I am already starting to see some games where my cpu doesn`t even reaches the minimum requirements! My CPU is what is actually stoping me from buying a slightly better gpu (a gtx 760, for example) cuz i know that there will terrible bottleneck issues. If I do choose to buy a better gpu, then I would also need to invest into buying a better gpu! I was a console guy until now, but I would really like to become a pc gamer! So, do you think that if I buy a hd 7870 and stick with my cpu I will be abble to play games like Mirrors Edge 2, Battlefield 4 and Watch Dogs?! Again, remember that i only want about medium/ high setting 1080p and i dont care if im getting only about 35fps.
Im so scared of the fact that my cpu is already less powerfull than the minimum requiriments of some upcoming games. I have 4 gb of ram wich I think is enough but my cpu is really making me super worried. Please respond as fast as possible!

PS: Sorry for my bad English, it is not my main language.

i would say theres no point in upgrading ur gpu, and its hard to tell how future games will run, but if u want me to guess, then you will do fine in games that arent cpu heavy, but in those that are, performence might be bad.

Ok thanks. Since my cpu is not powerfull enough for next gen gaming do you think that i should wait and pick up one of the new genration amd apu`s Jaguar and then maybe get a better graphics card?
