Hello again! To anyone who's helped me out on my GPU journey (as I like to call it), I'd just like to say thanks. You've been a LOT of help :D  ! Just one more question. Would a Penitum Dual Core E5800 bottleneck a 7770? As far as I know, clock speeds are the biggest factor. It's 3.2GHz, so it should be okay, right?

Hey, if it matters, I found some info on a 7770. It said "requires Pentium Dual Core 2.2GHz or higher". Does this mean I'm in the clear?

The E5800 is a rather old processor that was at the low end when it was introduced. While I refuse to jump on the "bottlenecking" misinformation brigade around here, it will not perform well with today's games.

the e series pentiums were always good overclockers to get the best from it you will need to clock it up, as long as the game isnt to hard on cpus (not bf3 and the likes) it will be just ok i definately wouldnt go any higher in gpu unless you intend to replace your cpu etc in the near future. my e5200 2.5ghz was able to get up 3.8ghz easy just make sure you get another cooler like a coolermaster 212 to keep your temps in check. maybe in a couple of months when u have money get new mobo cpu and ram unless you can find someone that wants to sell you a core 2 quad **cheap** most of them i owned got up to atleast 3.6ghz overclocked which will run most stuff pretty good, dont spend alot of money on one though, like 50 bucks because even the lowest gen2 i3's will be quicker in games!

i say that you upgrade your entire rig because in bf3 multiplayer and all other multiplayers wyour cpu will massively clog your entire system
your cpu will even clog a hd 6670
