Will my CPU bottleneck my 4770? And if so... Should I downgrade the cpu to a ATHLON II x4 620? Any replies will be greatly appreciated thanks.

I see! thank you very much. Then it must be my graphics card that is lagging it and being bottlenecked on much newer games. I guess it is time for an upgrade. What would be a great upgrade in the 7000 series cards? 100 to 200 dollars? Or Should I wait for the new Sea islands 8000 series?

The resolutions I game at is 1680x1050. But I have a Secondary 1080p monitor that I used for video editing and encoding. So a Card that can play up to resolutions at 1080p would be nice!

so 200$ is ur limit here.

this is ur best bet for 200$ http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r7850twinfr...



Yes 200 dollars! I don't wanna pay too much because newer cards may come out soon and may be much better performance and better prices. Thanks for recommending the best I can get! What would be Nvidias Similiar Card to the 7850? And can the 7850 play up to 1080p? All details maxed? On games like Battlefield 3, Far cry 3?

the 660, but would be 20$ more

for the extra money id recommand it, but u seem on a tight budget that or the 7870 for 221 ish, if not the 7850 is still decent, but for 20$ more the 7870 or gtx 660 are worth it.

I see I see hmmmmm for 20 dollars more how much the performance be from a 7850? Because at 20 dollars more it doesn't seem bad. At least $230ish isn't that bad. I see you have a 660! And i5 2500 very nice rig :)  How does it perform for you and at what settings do you game? My budget is $200 but I could squeeze out a few dollars more for 20 bucks more it doesn't seem bad and ill be getting something better for a bit more money.

to me the evga is better deal and has 5 years warranty id go with that :) 

oh thats a typo i have a gtx 660ti :D 



Your welcome, I see I see thanks for the links! 5 years warranty sounds excellent! Now it will be hard to decided wether to get the 7870 or gtx 660

Ohhhhhhh I see XD hahaha Theres two versions??? What the. What is the difference between a ti and non ti.

Oh I see! Thank you very much you have been very helpful! :D  So for every 30$ its a bit faster! Its tempting but I will go with what you adviced :)  I will be gaming at 1680x1050 so I guess either card will be good enough. I have never bought a nvidia card before, the only one I ever bought was a really old EVGA Geforce 6200LE. And Evga made a good product for its time. That was in the old AGP times hahahaha I have gone ATI/AMD for the price performance since then and it has worked well for me. I hear people have driver issues but for me Not a single one. The only game I ever had a problem with was ASSASINS creed 3 were in the area Boston the frame rate is lowish. I don't know if it is a problem with my card...the game etc. I am now comparing both the 7870 vs GTX 660 online and seeing which I should get. Thanks for all your help! :D  Very helphul.
