New to this board, and 4chan's /g/ wasn't giving me a straight answer, although that's to be expected.

Which is better? the 6790 can be had for $125 after MIR, while the 7770's price varies. I'm just looking for a decent card to play CS:GO and the new NFS titles. maybe a bit of COD thrown in there for good measure

Also, will my Pentium e2200 bottleneck it? i have a fear it might, even though it's oc'd to 2.7ghz

Current specs
Pentium E2200 oc'd to 2.68 ghz. w/ Rosewill RCX-Z90-AL Fan
Asus P5G41T M-LX w/ Intel GMA x4500
6GB DDR3-1333 Ram
2TB Seagate Barracuda Green
320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11
Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 500W

go for the hd 7770.. it's very close to the hd 6850 and consumes less power. Yes, you should have bottlenecks.. obviously it will not perform the same as with an i7 in benchmarks..but it should work.. Just try to avoid games that are cpu dependent..hehehe..

Install gentoo.

But no seriously, I would go for any 7770, because anything in the 6XXX series uses pure brute force to get the job done, they started refining the performance with the 7XXX series cards, so a 77XX series Overclocked can outrun just about any 6XXX card.

I would go with a two fan one. I got a dud overclocker from MSI (Unstable with any overclock in memory or clocks speeds), but thats just one experience. Whatever you like should be good.

a 2 fan model? hmm. if my research is correct, that leaves the msi 7770 power edition or the sapphire vaporx.
i dont think id be overclocking it that much though, so i think a 1 fan setup should be good enough. thanks for the tip though!
