Video card performance with Phenom x4 9550 2.2ghz

Hello, I have AMD Phenom 9550 2.2ghz, 8MB DDR2 800MHz, Win 7 64bit, DX 11, 1600 X 900 resolution, Radeon HD 4850, ASUS M3A78-EMH HDMI Mobo.850PSU unit. I would like to upgrade my video card to DX 11 and play BF3, what kind of video card could I get that would perform ok with my current PC. I was looking at purchasing a Radeon HD 6790.

  1. I would get a new CPU before getting a new video card, also instead of the 6790, look at the 5800 series cards, they are faster and cost about the same.
  2. That cpu is from Amds very old and slow stock.
  3. I will be building a new pc in the comming months, this will be my g/f's facebook computer and click click click virus pc. Until then i'll probably just update the graphics card best I can. I will definatly check out the 5800 series, thanks.
  4. Update: I decided to build my new pc early.

    Core I7 2700K
    ASUS|P8Z68-V/GEN3 Z68
    16 GIG DDR3 RAM 1600mhz
    SSD 128G|CRUCIAL CT128M4SSD2
    HIS Radeon 6950 2gig

    That should do it :)
