Hello, im looking to upgrade my vga from a gtx 260 to a hd7870. Im wondering if this would still be compatible with my current rig. If so, how much will it be bottlenecked? If not, is there a compatible card in the current gen that can at least be considered a worthy upgrade without a significant bottleneck?
MB: Asus p5ql-se
cpu: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33Ghz
Thanks for the advice. As for the oc, i will be doing it at a later time. Im new to overclocking so i need to do a little homework. As for now i really need a replacement card for my rig, and i think ill go for the 7850.
