i cant upgrade my cpu now
and i will play on 17 inc display not very high reslouation
Are you getting a great deal on the 6790 ? Because it is usually with in reach of a 6850, which is a much better all around card in comparison.
And to your question, depends on the games you play, if the game you play is CPU heavy, like StarCraft 2, or for your CPU, even Left 4 Dead series, your CPU will be certainly the limiting factor, especially given your monitor size.
yes my friend order it and it didnt work because his power supply isn't powerful enough so he told me about it and the price is very good to me its 40$ lower than the market price so u guys think to get it or it will not work good with my cpu ??
thanks guys for help and i went to one of my friends hi has athlon x2 250 with ati 6570 1 gb ddr3 and 4 gb ddr3 1333mhz ram and he plays medal of honor 2010 on 1280*720 very high and no lag at all and shift 1and 2 on high resloutions so i think the 6790 will be very good for me
