Hello! I recently picked up a new monitor, the Asus VG248QE and my build is having a hard time keeping up with the 120fps I'd like. So next week I plan on going to pick up a new GPU, I was hoping to get a GTX760 or even a GTX770, however I'm afraid of my CPU bottle-necking to great extent, making games unplayable (it happened when I tried to put my 7750 into an Althon build, lol). I know my CPU will not provide the same level of performance as an i7 for example, simply what I would like to know is will it be a worthy upgrade from an HD7750. Some research I've done shows that with a GTX760 I should get nearly double the performance that I'm getting right now with my HD7750 (Skyrim maxed @ 35fps compared to 60). I mostly play Counter Strike, MMO's and RPG's such as The Elder Scrolls series. My system build should be below my post, thank you very much for your time.

If you have the budget then go with GTX 770 or GTX 760 will do.

GeForce GTX 770 - 42 Ampere and a 600W PSU minimum

GeForce GTX 760 - 30 Ampere and a 500W PSU minimum

So you need to replace the PSU as well.

Go with this one :

Hey! Sorry I didn't get back to you right away, I didn't realize someone replied to me. I've actually already upgraded to an AX760 about a month ago when I was thinking about upgrading my GPU, guess I forgot to update that (this is a second account, I just copied and pasted my old stuff). So I'll most likely be picking up an ASUS-DCII GTX760 tomorrow along with a new Razer Kraken 7.1 headset, Thanks.
