Additional Comments: I'm asking for help because i would like to know if upgrading from a 9800gt to a 7850 is a worthwhile considering my current system : mobo : acer G33t-Am Memory : 3g ddr2 667mhz Hardrive : 500g CPU : intel quad core Q6600 2.4ghz
I want to give my system an upgrade to play recent game like Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite that are both free with the purchase of a 7850.

The q6600 was a great CPU. However, I fear that it may hold back the 7850 with the low clock rates. You may have to overclock your CPU to really support the 7850.
Upgrading to a 7850 will grant you a massive increase in performance.
