Am I going to bottleneck my CPU or ram with this GPU?

Hello,

I am planning to get a Sapphire Radeon HD 7850, and I was wondering if I am going to bottleneck anything with this card (planning to run BF3 on ultra, 1680x1050).

Here's my specs:
AMD A8-3870K (oc'd to 3.2 ghz, not planning to use gpu from this apu)
4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz (oc'd to 1866mhz)

Thank you :)

    You should be fine. The APU is strong enough to make good use of that card.
  2. You shouldn't have any bottleneck issues and your ram is fine. However, i'd definitely suggest getting another 4gb of ram.

    Yeah, I really need 8gb ram, but I am out of money and it's either ram or graphics..

    A lot of the new games coming out will require 6-8 GB.
