You'll not fave much problem their, but I recommend a i5 3570k.

FX 4100 is a weak Processor, and to get the most out of your 7970 you need a very good processor.

1080p will put a hurt on that little card. what about a 660ti ? saw a couple for $265 after rebate at newegg.

forgot to ask amperage on power supply. you might not need to get a new one.

catch up top this thread in 10 about hours.

LITTLE CARD??!!

Dude radeon 7970 is way better than any Single GPU on the planet!!! Only GTX 690 defeats a radeon 7970, and that also because its dual gpu.

Even if it is 1080p its the best out there :- http://www.techspot.com/review/603-best-graphics-cards/...

instead of me going to sleep and coming back in 10 hours maybe you should............. should re-read his first post......... LITTLE CARD...... the gtx460...............

and by the way, seeing the rest of his hardware he could never push that BIG card............ think about it.

He can if he'll Get the new 750w PSU as he said above. There is nothing to bottleneck or something I guess (May be the CPU).

You'll not get any bottleneck. Get that IceQ.
You only have 8gb ram.

Buy Radeon 7970 and a PSU 750w (Corsair Preferred)

aaait, then i will add 4gb of extra ram som the ram total will be 12gb

this keeps getting dumber and dumber. why would anybody need 4 more gigs of ram ? 8 is plenty.
