HI!, I'm new here, I'm From yahoo answer, I just go here because in yahoo there is so late comments, I just want to ask..

Will my Intel (R) Pentium (R) Dual CPU E2200 2.20GHz I will overclock I think if I can because it is an HP Model, to 2.4 to 2.8 GHz.

Will this bottleneck my AMD Radeon 6770 I want to buy. If it will, is 5770 better? for my system? Please advise me thanks.

HP computer, unless it's a higher-end gaming model, 95% certain you can't overclock it. At stock speeds, that CPU is too slow for a 6770. The 5770 is pretty much an identical card.

If you get a 3 gig or so dual-core or quad core, with 2-3 gig of RAM at least, you will be OK running a 6770 with it. As long as your power supply can handle it, need about a 300 watt PSU for those to run without worries. You may be able to get away with something lower but it's not so certain especially if it's lower end brand of power supply.

best option is to get an entirely new system, regardless that cpu will bottleneck.

Yes, it will bottleneck a 6770. The 5770 is the same card; AMD basically rebranded it with a couple different features.

As has been said, I'm almost certain that you can't overclock your computer if it's an OEM (HP, Dell, etc). Even if you could, it still wouldn't be fast enough to fully power a 6770.

And like amuffin said, the best thing you can do is just save up and get an entire new system instead of trying to piece together upgrades for this which will end up costing you three times the performance increase you'll get back out of it.

I agree your just throwing good money after bad if you decide to upgrade. Just hold off be patient and put a new one together, so you can see a REAL difference.

I'm not that rich, only Graphics card and PSU is the only one that can I afford, If I save my money, buy a new one, it will take me 10 Years or more for that, I save my money for Graphics card and PSU for over 5 years. :( ( And also I have 2 GB of RAM my MoBo is MSI Boston 1.0. My PC Is so Old, but I play older games like Half-Life 2, Portal 2, StarCraft 2 Dota WarCraft III TFT that uses dual core only, so I think it will not bottleneck. But GTA 4 Uses Quad, so I think It will be a prob, I watched others in youtube used Intel E2200 2.4 Overclocked they play GTA with AMD Radeon 6770 and it is not bottlenecking with 40 to 50 FPS with MAXIMUM settings. Why is that?

Because their cpu is overclocked.

That CPU is probably running at 3+ GHz and you aren't going to get anything on that board. It also looks like your are stuck with E4xxx and E7xxx CPUs.

With your current setup, I'd look for something like an used E7400 cheap ($60) with something like an used HD4850 or 250 GTS ($60). I think that will give you the best bang for buck rather than going out to get a 6770 at the same price.

If I go to that, that is just DirectX 10, I want DX11, so I can play future games, what is other Cards that DirectX 11 compatible for me?

I would first upgrade cpu and mobo.

Anyways, second choice would be something like a 6670/5670 with DX11 they are close in performance to my suggestions. You don't need to upgrade your power supply. You're going to be stuck at middling resolutions and quality, but it will play and probably with your sad CPU. I'm not sure from a value prospective how the DDR3 versus the DDR5 works out.

500 Watts is overkill even for a 6770 assuming the power supply isn't complete garbage. A standard 350W OEM power supply would be more than enough for a 5670.

Ok now, I'm losing hope in this. I have 1440x900 screen resolution, I just want to play StarCraft II At smooth with High Settings, and probably play GTA 4. that is the only games I play, oh there more eh, Portal 2, Left4Dead 2, HL2, WarCraft III (DOTA) Dota 2. IF SH|T happens, and I buy 6770 will this games effect in my CPU? WEW. This CPU is very disappointment.. NO!, Icannot buy MoBo and Processor, I don't have WORK yet!.. :(

You nee a new cpu, and mobo before you can play games....

Ok so, 6770 is the final.

There will be a huge bottleneck. Im telling you, games will be hard to play.
December 21, 2011 1:06:23 AM

SH|T!!, THERE IS NO HOPE FOR ME NOW!!! :(  Maybe the plan B will work, or no. What will GPU that can Max or play it smoothly with High settings in StarCraft II and GTA 4? Leaving my CPU Intak., will this work: ATI Radeon HD 5670 ?

Im telling you, any modern day card will be bottlenecked by your cpu.
December 21, 2011 1:18:15 AM

alright then. I will get the GPU first, then Upgrade the MoBo and CPU.
December 21, 2011 12:50:10 PM

You won't be playing new games at high with your CPU, Medium at best with a 6770. Your PC will run them, you just can't turn on a lot of extra graphics options, shadows are probably out, maybe simple ones, particles, etc... need to be on low or maybe medium. Starcraft 2 has a recommended CPU of a 2.4 dual-core, pretty close to yours, but that's not for high settings and smooth playback, won't be too bad though.

It sucks but your pretty much having to wait to upgrade before you do any real gaming, sorry man, can squeeze blood out of a turnip.
