I need some help. My question is simply will my current Motherboard & CPU bottleneck an AMD Radeon HD 7850 OverClocked. My Motherboard and CPU Specs are as follows...

Motherboard:

-Model: 04GJJT A00

-Chipset: AMD 785G Rev. 00

-Southbridge: AMD SB700 Rev. 00

-LPCIO: ITE IT8720

CPU:

-AMD Athlon II X2 250 Processor 3.00GHz


I also have 6GB of DDR3 RAM, i run on Windows 7 Home Premium. Sorry if i gave to much or to little information. If you need more information let me know! I plan on buying a new GPU & PSU tonight and need some help and i have my eye on the 7850.

Your dual core processor will be the main bottleneck.

So is it not worth buying the 7850? Also what should i get? I was looking at the AMD Radeon HD 7770. Would that be better?

From what I read the 7770 is not a very good card at all, better if you go for a high end 6xxx.

All I know is that a dual core will be a bottleneck im not sure how much it will effect the card itself though.

Sorry I couldn't help more!

Which 6000 series would you recommend? I have an Inspiron 570 that i bought dirt cheap and i want to build a gaming PC using this as my base. I'm new to this, it will be my first build and it has an integrated AMD HD 4200 which is terrible. I'm looking to play games like Counter Strike Global Offensive for now, until the build is done then i'd go for Battlefield and the demanding games. I just need help and advice and my friend told me to make an account on this site and ask you guys.

*Edit* Would a 6850-6870 be a good choice or is that still to high end?

The Best Idea For Now Is To Get An New Processor Like An AMD Phenom Which is Like $100 In Certain Places And Buy The
Radeon 7850 As That Is Ideal For Gaming
