AMD athlon ii 260 3.3 Ghz Processor
amd radeon hd 6670 1gb DDR3 GPU
3 GB DDR2 ram and 1600x900 resol. LED.... so will modern games run smoother at high settings in BF3,gta 4,assination creed & all....

No you can't max them out,but all of them will run fine on medium settings

^+1

But I think you will find that BF3 will be the most demanding game out of those and it might not even be possible to run it on medium.

is the MSI hawk 5770 better than 6670 ????
March 6, 2012 12:13:00 PM

Yes it is.The next step up would be the 5750 and after that the 5770.The 6770 is basically a rebranded 5770.
March 6, 2012 12:17:52 PM

in some cases hd 6670 performs little bit higher and it has newer tech then hd 5770 but for hd 5770 hawk will be an good choice.:) 
March 6, 2012 12:23:29 PM

it is better than radeon hd 6670 right ??? so i m buyin MSI HAWK 5770 ..and athlon ii 260 is better choice na....or intel ??? at amd athlon's price ?? if yes than plss suggest as my motherboard is GA 945GCM-S2L
March 6, 2012 12:26:55 PM

yes hwk will be an better choice and get atleast amd athlon ii x 3 455 rana so that you can unlock cores or amd phenom ii x2 555be.:) 
March 6, 2012 12:29:21 PM

At the Athlon's price point Intel doesn't really have anything to offer.But if your really stressed on your budget and your looking to get the best bang for your buck and haven't bought your CPU or motherboard yet I would suggest going for a Llano APU and a 6670.
March 6, 2012 12:30:25 PM

but my motherboard doesnt support amd processors so ????? my motherboard is GA 945GCM-S2L and its supports only intel.... so can u suggest me an intel processor in d range of athlon ii 260?
March 6, 2012 12:38:34 PM

buy a core 2 duo or core 2 quad which is compatible with your mobo.:) 
March 6, 2012 12:39:28 PM

In your very first post you said you had an AMD processor. It helps to give honest and accurate information up front.

As far as a decent processor for that board, we'd need to know what you're using now to know whether or not it was worth upgrading.
March 6, 2012 12:42:56 PM

but my mother board is a shame//... :( 
March 6, 2012 12:44:45 PM

so core 2 duo ?? better option for gaming ??>>
March 6, 2012 12:46:27 PM

Really the best option would be to go for a higher clock Core 2 Duo.

But honestly I think it would be best to save up your money and buy a proper gaming PC.At this point the 775 socket is a dead end and will just be a money pit.

Holy crap, that CPU is bad. Unfortunately, selection of LGA 775 processors is very, very limited. You'd be better off replacing the motherboard and CPU than you would buying a new 775 processor.

This CPU with this motherboard and this memory come out to $125, and will get you a huge upgrade. It will also give you an upgrade path in the future to better Sandy Bridge CPUs, but I don't believe that board will support Ivy Bridge.

I agree with willard, this new spec of yours is not really and upgrade. One may call it a downgrade, even. Your previous Athlon II X2 has slightly better performance.

But if you insist on your current 775 specs, going quad is the only way to improve significant performance. Even the cheapest C2Q lineup promises far better in term of raw power.

As for GPU part, if you concern for budget, I'd say no need to upgrade if you get that C2Q. Upgrades are usually justifiable if you go two or three ranks higher than your current hardware. As for that case, your $100-125 just won't cut it. You'll experienced a slightly better performance though, but just not worth the money. I say you should save them up some more and go for something like 5750 later on.

3GB DDR2? That's weird number, I must say. I suppose you're not really running on Dual Channel, as I imagined you use two differently capacity. Go for 2x2GB at exact same module-speed-brands, that should brings you some improvement as Dual Channel kicks in.

Cheers.

March 7, 2012 6:46:36 AM

yes hd 6770 will be better then hd 6670 and intel is making good gaming processers.:) 

for your resolution hd 6770 will work finr with high settings with no aa or if u want more then cost a bit higher and get hd 6850 which will be very good for that resolution and can play games in high settings with 2xaa to 4xaa in games.:)

March 7, 2012 6:56:32 AM

and what is your psu model please tell me before buying and taking any risk.
March 7, 2012 7:02:44 AM

power supply where you connect your cpu plug open case and check model.:) 

psu look like this.



open the case and check there will be an lable there will be written model and watt and max wattage output.:) 
March 7, 2012 7:04:56 AM

u can see there is one sqaure type thing in which wires coming out and pluged that is an psu check the lable and tell me.

March 7, 2012 7:11:22 AM

you should change your psu bro thats not a good psu and cant power a hd 6770.:( 
March 7, 2012 7:14:57 AM

get this psu or get an hd 7750 which performs as hd 6770 but my recommendation will be to upgrade psu and collect some more money wait 1 or 2 months collect more money and then go for upgrade it will not be good to take risk seriously bro.

if your psu is this then sorry to say but it doesnt have the 6 pin pcie connector and its of rs 500 which is really very low that is the sign of bad psu.

i will say that you should get a new psu and be happy with that dont be in a problem with that psu.
