Hi guys i just decided to buy a new hd 7770. I havent bought it yet . I am currently on 8400GS 1gb ddr3 and saw a very disgraceful performance. these are my pc specs :
processor - core 2 duo e4600 2.4 Ghz
motherboard- foxconn G41 MD-V
ram - 8 gb ddr3
power supply- zebronics 450w
I asked about the gpu in my another thread and they said that hd 7770 will bottleneck with my cpu . Is it really going to happen . Will i see no performance increse from 8400 GS to hd 7770.
i would strongly suggest a cpu upgrade as well because the gpu that you are planning to will test your cpu and you might not get the desired perfomance ...........please tell us more about the budget that you have in your mind to upgrade the system
Older games will no problems with that cpu.but cpu intensive games will strugle like your hd 7770 is capable of givin 40fps but due to cpu it may be around 25fps so that is a bottleneck to cpu.i would suggest a upgrade.
core i3 3220 is one of the best i recently bought it and i am using the gtx 460 even with that iget 50-55 fps on gta 4 benchmark and only 25% of the cpu perfomance is utilized in the task manager...........but if you can afford a little more then i would suggest you to go for the core i5 3570 that is the best gaming cpu right now available .............
Thank you all one last thing if i decided to buy hd 7750 as it does not need an power connection will it also bottleneck. If it wont bottleneck with my my cpu then i dont need to buy a motherboard and cpu. It was my final question and i cant wait for future and i dont have any source of income and dont get any pocket money also
