What is the minimum CPU for the 4870? I'm considering an upgrade to the 4870. I have an AMD X2 7750 @ 2.7 Ghz. Will the 4870 be bottlenecked by my CPU?
My local PC store has marked down the 512 HIS IceQ 4870 to $113 which is an absolute steal.
First of all, please don't post on someone else's thread. Second of all, your CPU will bottleneck the graphics card.
However, I would still get the 4870 because it is around the prices of the 4850s. You can upgrade later.
