I want to get an i5 processor, buuuut I also want to get a AMD radeon 7850. I'm being told that pairing intel and AMD radeon is a bad idea because of bottlenecking that would occur? Is this true? How sever will the bottlenecking be? More about : gpu choice Best solution Sunius a c 291 U Graphics card June 27, 2012 11:23:41 PM No it is not true. Whoever told you that doesn't know what he's talking about/wants to get more money from you. HD 7850 will work beautifully with i5 .
