How is Athlon x4 630 for gaming?
My friend is building a gaming rig on budget with athlon x4 630 and 5770or 6870.
Will this athlon bottleneck the cards like 5870 or 6970 if he upgrade the card in future?
Can it maxx out gta 4 and crysis with 5770 or 6870?
Depends on the resolution. I'd say the max for the 630 would be 1680x1050. Then you can turn up eye candy with a 6870 or so. The good thing is that if it can play CrySis it can play nearly any game.
Truthfully, I'd wait for the AM3+ boards to come out since that's an upgrade path to Bulldozer.
