USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (BF3, Minecraft, ARMA 2, etc.)
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: NO GPU, 950w Corsair PSU
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS:
MOBO/CPU: Intel i7 3.3ghz (3.9ghz Turbo) Extreme Edition
6gb DDR3 RAM
Windows 7 Pro
(Any brand, as long as it's good and reliable)
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920 x 1080
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Pretty new to computers so some of the stuff above may not make any sense! I prefer the GPU to be under $150 and run about 40-60 FPS on the games listed above! Any help is appreciated!
I was recommended the Radeon 7770 HD from another person but would that be bottlenecking for my setup?
That would most definitely be a bottleneck for an Extreme Edition i7 CPU. In fact, the 7850 is even still gonna be a bottleneck. You'll still get great performance with it but it'll be a bottleneck in games, you're CPU probably won't be doing much...
