Hey, Mike2012 here. Currently, I have an HD 7750 + Core i3, it's alright, but not the best. Now, I've been thinking of upgrading to an HD 7850 and I want to know, will the rig below play every game on max at 60fps?

OS: Windows 7
CPU: Core i3 2120@3.3ghz
RAM: 4GB
GPU: HD 7850

I see, but would I be severely bottlenecked, to the point where it's noticable?

It's the Core i3 2120@3.3ghz by the way.

And here come the conflicts.

Take the card. The bottleneck will be unnoticeable.

No chance with 4GB , i3 and a 7850 HD.
It will run all games but just not nearly as nicely as you are hoping.
You will probably get 40-45 on high or a bit higher.

Just to make sure we're not making a bad assumption here.....

Are you playing these games at 1920x1080?

If so, with a 7850, you'll still be able to reach fairly high settings @ 60 fps in demanging games. Disabling things like depth of field and dynamic shadows will see the largest performance gains while maintaing most of the visual quality.

If you're playing at a lower resolution, however, then the rig will be able to max or get very close to max in every game @ 60 fps.

Yeah, the 7850 isn't that high end. To max every current game at 1080P you need something along the lines of a GTX 680 or Radeon 7970. They are like $400-$500.

don't buy the 7850 if you're not planning on upgrading that CPU.
you'll get around 40-45 and might as well take a crad that is 50$ cheaper that can get the same results with an i3.
get my meaning?

Completely unrelated, but strange coincidence. Look at this screenshot I just took:

Yes. Well what cards would you recommend that the i3 wouldn't bottleneck?

My other option was the HD 7770, but I'm not sure if I'd see that big of a performance boost.

Still though, based on what most posters said, at 1600x900 or 1920x1080 I shouldn't see too much of a bottleneck, as long as I disable some settings.

This is incorrect. A 2120 is *plenty* of CPU for a 7850.

Your "best answer" is far from correct.

The HD 7750 gives about 13 FPS in FarCry3 maxed(1920x1200).
Playing at a lower resolution will hardly save you too much FPS, besides, too tiny resolution becomes unplayable, and not remotely considered max settings.

If you want near 60 FPS, you could consider the GTX 680 which gives about 55 FPS average(FC3/MAX/1920x1200).

Cards are benchmarked at fairly optimal rigs, your processor will likely pull the fps slightly further down.

He was talking about the 7850, though I do mostly agree with you.
