Hola fellow forumers. I'd like to ask some questions:

I have Quad Q8200 (OC'ed to 2.8GHz), 4 GB DDR2 and 550Ti. The question is: To take Gigabyte's GA-Z77MX-D3H + 3470 and leave 550ti or leave old components and buy a new GPU. The PC would be used mainly for gaming (BF3, next GTA5). If GPU, then what graphics card should i take? I could spend for MB + CPU + RAM about 400-500$, and for GPU i would spend around 250-300$. I'm aiming at Radeon 7850. It's good choise or no? Would this GPU bottleneck my old CPU?

Bottlenecks move in different games and at different resolutions, if you are gaming at 1920 x 1080 or higher then I suggest you get the 7850. I don't think a CPU upgrade is worth it unless you get a GPU as well.

Keep the CPU and get that 7850/70. :)
