Looking to upgrade to HD 6850

Hello,

My current build:

Intel Core 2 Duo
4 GB DDR2 800

Apevia 500w

BFG Tech GTS 250

ASRock G31M-S

I've decided that the HD 6850 is the best card for my budget but will it work well with my system? If not, any suggestions for upgrades?

Thanks.

  1. CPU bottleneck is guaranteed.Also it is recommended to change your PSU to some well known brands like xfx,corsair,thermaltake etc.
  2. Upgrading the mobo/psu/cpu would be required I guess? My budget for that would be about $400.
  3. Including Gfx??
  4. No, the gfx would be extra.

    I think this would be best:
    Intel core i5 2300.($180)
    H67 chipset($60-100)
    xfx core edition 550($70)
    4GB -8GB Ram($30-50 )
  6. I don't really need the case but I think I'll go with the i5 2500k.

    Thanks all.
  7. +1 for 2500k
  8. Dont feel bad spending 20 - 25% of your budget on the Power Supply.

    Ask yourself if you would want to be driving around in a Dodge Viper if it had a Dodge Neon engine in it.

    The thing delivering the power is just as important as what you power with it.
