I know my CPU will bottleneck it. I'm hoping to upgrade to at least a phenom II x4 in the near future. I would just like to know if the card will run on my system and be better than the 6670 I currently have.
I'm saying, if you upgrade now the cpu, yes, if only the card, you're better of with a 7850 or 7770. The 7870 will be restrained by your cpu, and it's not worth it with that cpu, you'll get the same performance as the other two cards above
I would rather get the same performance now then upgrade the cpu to get better performance than get a 7850 then have to upgrade both, graphics card and cpu to get better performance.
Yes, you can do that, like i said in the beginning, i recommend upgrading the cpu, also there's gonna be latter on new intel cpus and amd gpus, it's just a reason to see what's the best for you.
Alright, ill go with the 7870. Thanks for your help!
