So a couple days ago I asked what the best gpu for my friend is at 1360x786 and you guys said the 6770, which I agree with. Where I have a question is will his CPU limit the performance of the card? It's a phenom iix3 710 2.6ghz.
I think it will.My older phenom X3 8650 @2.3Ghz used to bottleneck my hd 4890 a lot at 1600x900 res. Performance wise 4890 and 6770 differs only by a small margin.Since you'll be gaming at much lower res than mine it might be bottle necked by you CPU.But you can always OC your CPU to 3GHz+ and eliminate any cpu bottleneck.
I based my "nope" reply on the fact that he asked advice allready on which card to buy for a certain psu and he mentioned the Phenom cpu on that thread.
I trust the Tom's memebers they came up with this card also keeping in mind his cpu.
BF3 wants a quad core to run best. with a 6770 at that resolution, you will not see too much of a strangle on your GPU by your CPU. There might be some, but lets be realistic here; it isnt going to make everything unplayable if you can only afford the graphics upgrade at the moment, you just will see a few frames less here and there
