So i'm going to buy a new graphics card (7870) and a new psu (xfx 550w), and i thought that maybe another component in my pc would bottleneck it, seeing as i was on a £580 budget when i bought this, including monitor, mouse, keyboard and speakers.

My specs are :
Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3
CPU : AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.20GHZ
RAM : Kingston 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz
GPU : Saphire ATI Radeon HD 6670 ( upgrading to xfx 7870 core edition )
PSU : TOQO 480W Silent ( I don't know anything about the company or the psu) ( Upgrading to xfx 550W Pr)

hopefully you are on win7 64 bit?
the 955 is fine for that gpu as long as you give it a nice overclock.
I would also upgrade to 8g of ram if you arent on 32 bit of course.

Technology does not stand in place, it is improving and we have to keep up with it
