  1. GTX460 if you want to stay with nvidia or HD5770
  2. sounds good thank you do you think i will have any bottleneck problems?
  3. ^^^

    The GTX 460 is at least as fast as the HD 5830 and in some cases just as fast as the HD 5850.

    It is also rather power hungry....

  4. GTX 460 or HD 5850(if your budget allows), however your CPU may bottleneck it in major titles.
  5. I'd recommend Radeon HD 5770 for low end gaming Nvidia GTX 460 for mid-high end gaming and a 5850 for high end gaming.
  6. I would recommend either the GTX 460 1GB or the HD 5850.
  7. i would recommend :

    Intel i7 980X
    Cooler Master V8 (Allowing i7 @ 4000Mhz
    3 x GTX 480
    Asus Rampage MoBo
    1200W PSU
    12Gb DDR3 @ 2000Mhz

    How About that???

    BUDGET!!! where's the budget?? its so difficult to offer assistance if we don't know what to work with!!

    Lol wut? HD57xx series are mid-end cards, GTX460 is high end.

    Anyway, on topic.

    Get the GTX460 and OC your CPU. OC'ing the CPU will remove the bottleneck it causes.
  9. my budget is 250 max and i have never overclocked before.my intel motherboard wont allow it
  10. Get a 1gb 460
  11. You will still be fine with your CPU at stock speeds and you can play games fine, however in some games your card won't run at its full potential.
