  1. You shouldn't bottleneck but why go for the GTX470? Their are far better cards out their for the money and power.

    What is your budget?
  2. not a 570 only 470 slite higher than a 460. and my athlon has an overclock of 4.1ghz, my buget range is150-200 USD, pls if u could give more recommendations
  3. upgrading the cpu also not planned its only the vc to upgrade
  4. i game @ 1680x1050
  5. Best answer
    At that resoultion I would reccomend going with a 6870.
  6. i play the latest games like dirt3,shift2,fI 2010, cod BO. my 9800gt played them well though, but i want some dx11 effects too. coz i missed with my current card
  7. i think i go with the 6870 acc. to hwcompare.com its prety much the same in performence, and less power hungry, thanks to "purple stank"

  10. just thought id say nice overclock before MM closes up. is there any more room to overclock ?
  11. no more its the highest it can go, if i go beyond that, the system is unstable
  12. Thought what I thought.On the Phenom ii and Athlon ii chips you start to hit a wall at around >4.2ghz.
