    The radeon 7750 is the best of of all of those!

    If you get a better card you will have a CPU bottleneck and you would have to replace the entire system.
  2. With my current build would i be able to run a 7770 without upgrading my cpu & psu

    Yes you should be alright.
  4. Is there any 7750 card that's above the others or are they all basically the same
  5. Best answer
    pretty much it just is who has the highest clocks or the best cooling like on your link the sapphire's is slightly faster while msi's has dual fans and a slightly lower clock
  6. Well here's the 5 7750's i narrowed down to

    any one catch your eye as a better deal then the other
  7. So after doing some research i've come to realize that the x3 445 rana isn't exactly the best cpu for gaming
    just curious how much of a bottleneck would there be if i bought a 7770 instead of a 7750
    or would i just be wasting money with the cpu i have now
