7750 or 7770 for an opteron 180 (socket 939)???

Hi guys! I have an old system (MB ASUS A8n-SLI deluxe, CPU Opteron 180 2.4x2, 3GB RAM, GPU NVIDIA 6600gt 256mb, PSU 550 W).

I would like to update my GPU in order to play some recent games (even in lower analysis such as 1280x1024). I have individualized the RAdeon 7750 and 7770. Which one would you suggest in order to gain performance and avoid bottlenecking by the CPU?

Thanks a lot!

  1. no help? :-(
  2. Hi, I have the same processor w 4 gigs ddr1, I recently upgraded from my geforce 9600gt to the 7770 hoping to grab more fps.. It would seem that even the 9600 was bottle necking the cpu. In wow Mop I went from 8 fps to a whoping 12 and like 3 fps in raid battle. Its more playable but still pretty sucky. Time to grab an am3 board and put this 7770 into something worth while. If you dont plan on upgrading anything else I would probably go with the cheapest direct x 11 card you can find. (it will still bottleneck)
