I'm so confuzled and I'd love some help. Please, I just got a 6770 Radeon XFX and I hate it. I haven't tried it out because my wattage is too low. I'll be buying a reall high, 800w PSU soon.

1. I have a quad-core 2.4GHz, is this bottlenecking?

2. Is the 6770 vs 6950 vs 7770 a big leap, or smaller leaps.

3. I swear to god, all are $180 at a local store. Which do I keep/buy?

4. Do I NEED to upgrade my CPU?

5. What do I dooo?!

Exactly what CPU do you have? You're probably fine.

The 6950 absolutely dwarfs the other 2 GPUs.

You don't need an 800W PSU. Get a quality brand ~500w PSU and you'll be fine.

I have a "AMD Quad-Core A8-3800 Accel. Processor". I guess I'll get a 6950, but is my CPU bad? It's 2.4Ghz.

most games are gpu intensive. a bench with far cry2 and BFBC2 (with a nvidia 580)

another BFBC2 bench with a particle simulation bench (where the lower cpu is relevant with nvidia 460)

it is what it is, an entry level apu. and a fine one at that. aslong as it won't bottleneck your gpu what difference does it make? - it seemed to work fine with a gtx580 so your good.
