Hi folks, I was planning to upgrade to Ivy Bridge but was disappointed with its performace

I'm using a Core i3-530 @2.93GHz and its HD Graphics 1000 IGP

If I upgrade my PSU and buy a HD 7770, will it be able to run BF3, Dragon Age 2, Saints Row 3, Shogun 2, etc?



In short: will i3-530 + HD 7770 run games smoothly @720p?

Thanx :)

Should be fine at 1280x720, low to mid settings.

low to mid, is it because of the card or the CPU?

Both. The 7770 isn't particularly a very strong card, and those games are pretty demanding on both the CPU and GPU.
