I just ordered MSI HD 7850 Twin Frozr III OC 2048MB GDDR5

http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX...

It's an upgrade from my 1gb amd 6850. My system is AMD 4100 @4.2ghz, 8gb ddr3 1600mhz ram and agiity 3 120gb SSD.
I know my CPU might bottleneck it in some games but i just wondered what kind of detail i might be able to play games like crysis,crysis 2 and battlefield 3 in.
I know battlefield 3 is GPU bound and my CPU will not bottleneck it in single player. I intend to buy battlefield next week and would love to play in ultra.
Is this possible?
I hope so and if not can i overclock this card. I would love to hear from people with the same card and people who have overclocked this or another 7850.
Any input will be appreciated guys

msi has the policy too overclocking can also damage the gpu permanently so if i may u i will not overclock it because it can still games on ultra too much greed for more fps can cause damage the gpu so hell no

just to clear things up your cpu will not bottleneck a single HD 7850 maybe a HD 7970 but not a HD 7850 . And it overclocks great you can get up to 1.15GHz on Stock volts so performance will be past a stock HD 7870. And yes you can play Battlefield 3 on stock on Ultra 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 with no AA


Edit: FX 4170 & HD 7970 Benchmark

I'm also pleased to hear that my CPU will not bottleneck it. I've been pleased with my FX 4100 @ 4.2ghz. I upgraded from a AMD 5200@2.7ghz and i know people always like to put the AMD FX line down but i've been happy with it for the £77 it cost with a £50 motherboard with 6 SATA 3 ports and 2 USB 3 ports. I bet many others have been pleased with the FX CPU's too

One other thing guys. Will i need to reinstall my graphics drivers from my 6850 as i think they use the same driver?

yes i suggest reintalling the drivers always when changing graphics

So when you get the new card uninstall the old drivers then run Driver Sweeper to fully remove anything left over, restart your pc then download and install AMD CCC 12.9

Just to reinforce your purchase, I own a 7850 from MSI and absolutely love it. For the money, the 7850 is the best card on the market right now. I play all my games on high or ultra (haven't tried Crysis 2 yet) at 1080p. It overclocks like a champ and runs super cool.
