Hello,

There are so many GPUs are there, so

it is really confusing when I need to make a choice.

My computer has

m3a78-t mobo

hd 4830 gpu

phenom ii x4 965 be cpu

4g ram


I like to play battlefield 3 1920x1080 with low or middle setting above

60fps. Right now, I am getting between 30~45 fps.

My question is what is the best gpu that my cpu can handle.

I don't think budget will be problem since my cpu isn't good enough to handle

those high quality gpu :pt1cable: 

thx

More important, what is your psu ?

you could get a 7850 or 7870, since you like amd, and those card will not be bottlenecked with the cpu.
But you need a decent psu.

Well its a pretty lightweight game... if youre Ok with last gen cards take a peek at them too. 6700 series is ok 6800 series would be way more then enough. But just a thought

the psu is 460 W

so, gpu will not be affected by cpu performance. That is a good thing.

hd 4830 vs hd 67xx series, will the result be significant ?

What's the brand or the amps ?

You could get a 7770 ghz edition for ~100$, much better than the 6770, and obviously much better than the card you have.
But i recommend for 1080p at least a 7850 1GB or 650 ti

If you heard that its all bias. The 2 companies have their ups and downs. AMD usually do better on multimonitor while Nvidia is more rounded

That is why there wasn't lagging when I was playing a game while watching a movie

with two monitors :D

2 monitors??? on both screens or on 1 lol. hmmm, while youre at it an extra 4 gb of ram wont hurt :p  and yah any decent gfx card within 7700 and 7800 will play most games on max or close to max

I have 52 inches tv and a led monitor connected

My family was enjoying a movie, UP (1080p blue-ray file), at the tv

While I was playing other some gun shooting games at the led monitor :p 


It seems buying 7770 is reasonable based on Tom's benchmarks

Should I sell my 4830 or just throw away?...

Its up to you, not exactly an easy sell in general but if you can spend a little time go for it
