Which is best graphic card and motherboard to combine with intel i3-3220 processor?

sometimes we buy advanced graphics card and our processor does not utilize it fully because the processor itself is not advanced, so buying advanced and costly graphics card is wastage.

So experts please suggest me the best combination asap, after your reply only i will buy. i totally like answers of this forum so waiting for your answers, will check forum in each 15 minutes to check replies.

thanks in advance.

  1. 7850
    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=77602&vpn=FX-785A-CNL4&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1306
    Can match a 660 in some games and cost quite a bit less.

    7870
    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=69828&vpn=FX787ACNFC&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1306
    Beats a 660 most of the time and is a close competitor to the 660ti for cheaper

    7950
    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=67748&vpn=FX795ATDFC&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1306
    Beats the 660ti by quite a bit with new bios and if OC (lots of headroom) can match a 7970

    Budget - 7850 (OC can be close to stock 7870) - tons of OC room
    Most Utilized - 7870 (OC close to 7950) - more risky OC choice
    Max card to pair with - 7950 (OC close to 7970) - tons of OC room

  6. I gave you best recommendations possible the i3 will not be bottlenecked with a 660 or a 7870 if you prefer a cheaper card get a 650 ti or 7850 or for low end gaming settings a 7770 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102993 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102998
