Video Card Upgrade HD Radeon

My current system consists of an ASUS P6T mobo, 6 GB RAM, i7 930 2.8 GHz processor, Radeon HD 5770 video card, and Win 7 64 bit. I'm able to run any game I throw at it fine at the moment, however, I feel the irrational need for a change. Would upgrading to say a Radeon HD 6870 or even a 7000 series show a noticeable improvement or would my system bottleneck such a card?

  1. No sir/ma'am. An HD 7850 or above would be an amazing improvement, though an HD 6870 would be great too.
  2. A Radeon HD 7850 will have nearly double the performance of your current Radeon HD 5770.
  3. Thanks to both posters for your prompt responses. Time to shop!
  4. My ASUS P6T is of course PCI-E 2.0. Should I avoid Radeon HD 7850s listed as 3.0 or would buying such a card now make sense for any future builds? Or would it even work?

    PCIe 3.0 graphics cards are fully backward compatible with the PCIe 2.0 x16 slot on the motherboard.
