Alright so I know a thing or two about hardware but I am unsure of this. I was wondering if an AMD Radeon HD 7770 would go with these specs so here they are.

Motherboard - Asus P5KPL-cm
Ram- Kingston DVR800D2N5/2G DDR2 SDRAM
CPU- Intel Core 2 Quad q6600 @ 2.40GHZ

Alright so I'm planning to upgrade to a 7770 from a 9600 GT with this new power supply

And then there is the 7770

I'm just asking for advice on weather or not this would be a viable upgrade due to my worrying that the CPU might possibly bottleneck the Graphics card and as for the RAM as well. This may seem like an ancient build but it still runs pretty fast for comparison to other computers out there now a days.

You won't have a bottleneck just make sure to overclock your cpu to at least 3 ghz!

Don't get that unbranded PSU, get this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks I'm not so sure about overclocking the cpu though what benefits would it bring?


it would bring higher and more consistent frame rates.

Just an advise, before try to O.C. read/watch lots of guide....

There a risk of frying the computer when O.C.....

last, repetitive small step is better than one giant step....
