Hello guys, i am new in this awesome site and i would like to hear your thoughts about which graphic card will be the best upgrade for my pc. These are my computer specs:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-S2H
CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II x4 925 at 2,80 GHz
GPU: ATI RADEON HD 5670
RAM: 4,00 gb ddr2
Power supply: Stealth X Stream 2 (OCZ600SXS2) 600W
Windows 7 64-bit system
I want to play skyrim/bf3 at high/ultra settings without problems. I dont know much about overclocking so i am not going to overclock my GPU. I have searched a lot of sites for GPUs and i believe a Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition OC 2GB GDDR5 will be a good choise? or should i wait to learn more about the new GTX 660? Feel free to correct me and plz advice me which graphic card will be good for me or if anything else needs upgrading. My budget is about 350-400 euro.
Radeon HD 7870 might be bottlenecked by your CPU. Try getting Radeon HD 7850 and spend a little more cash on a new CPU. If you are going to get a CPU in near future, get the HD 7870. GTX 660 will be released soon, so waiting is good option too
Thanks for advice dude. I am willing to spend some money for a new CPU but dont know yet which one will do the trick (as i said i want to play bf3,skyrim high/max settings) so any reccomendetion will be good.
