Should i get a Pentium G860 (65$) and an HD 7770 and get an i5 sometime next year or get a Pentium G2120 for 88$ or and i3 2120 for (99$) and an hd 7750.

However, in both the cases, it'll be your GPU which will bottleneck in games, rather than your CPU. Still, G860 + HD 7770 is a more balanced configuration. sharksfanX November 23, 2012 6:27:54 PM The 7770 will be good enough for medium settings with the i5 but 7750 and i3 wont do in battlefield 3 Wait for the i5 and keep the G850 money for a better gpu Related resources CPU , GPU Combination - Forum Cpu bottlenecking gpu down to 5 fps - Forum Will this cpu , Gpu and motherboard all work together? - Forum Overclocking both CPU and gpu - Forum Is my motherboard compatible with my gpu and cpu ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
