Upgrade - advice hd 5770

Hello I have the following computer:
CPU: I3-540
Motherboard: Asrock H55m-le
Ram: 2x4gb Patriot
GPU: HD5770 Asus Cucore
I don't know if a 270x 2gb or 4gb edition is too much for my current configuration. Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Your CPU is limited. I would say either an R7-265 or GTX 750 Ti at the most before bottlenecking occurs.

    Here's my thoughts, please fell free to contradict whatever I say!

    1. The GPU will probably be bottlenecked by that processor but if you plan on upgrading your processor/motherboard in the relatively near future that shouldn't be an issue

    2. What make/model/wattage is your power supply?

    3. If you're gaming at 1080p or below most games will not benefit from the extra 2Gb of vRAM though badly optimised ones like Watchdogs may

    I have a Cooler Master GX 450W
    and I do plan to upgrade the cpu/motherboard but not right know, in 6 months or so.
  4. In that case you'll need to upgrade your power supply for R9 270X. I recommend the 550W XFX Core edition
