Here's my build so far about a year old

CPU AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz

Motherboard BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX

Psu Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W

Ram CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

Case NZXT Apollo Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower

Looking to add a video card budget this month 90 to 95$ these are the cards i'm looking at

if i wait another month i can spend 150 to 170$ just wondering with my current build which would be better for me a 6670 or 7750

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.

Is there any 7750 card that's above the others or are they all basically the same

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

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
