Hey guys im just wonder if i should get the ATI Radeon HD 7770 1 GB DDR5 it is £80 and i need a new grathic card to run some games on high like skyrim.

A 7770 with a powerful CPU to match will easily run Skyrim maxed out at 1080p, Skyrim is primarily CPU bound. Theres not really anything else at that price so go for it.

A couple of benchmarks on it, though it will be a bit faster on the newer drivers. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536

BattleField 3
Tera

Would need to know your resolution to answer that really, and your exact CPU model, theres a big performance change between different resolutions and a CPU can really impact performance depending on if a game is more dependent on the CPU or GPU.

Either way, the 7770 is the best for the money at the moment.

A 7770 would be appropriate for that CPU. However, for the games you are looking to play I would suspect that you may not get the exact performance you are after. You do have a aging processor which where it still may be good does not have the power to keep up with current gen cards withstanding the 7750/7770, 650Ti.

When you say it's best for the money, like how long will it last? I'm just wondeirng because I'm trying to build a gaming pc on a budget, but I'm afraid the new Radeon GPUs are coming out soon....but kind of need a computer now. Would it be worth it just to get the 7770 now and upgrade later?

If you need a computer now then I can understand you spending money on a 7770. The 8770's will probably be a while before they release.

Thank, as long i can play game at least on high with descent frame rate, the graphic card i have now still lags mad on skyrim on the open area because of Fov.

Its a difficult question to answer without a crystal ball to be honest. With the new consoles coming out at the end of the year there will be a wave of Dx11 games with most likely greater demands than what theres been upto now. If or not a 7770 will be 'good' after that depends on you, and what levels of performance make you happy. All GPU's become useless eventually.

Agreed typically the higher end cards will last a 2-3 generations of cards before they are no longer able to keep up I would suspect that within the next generation or 2 of games that you may end up with a hard time with games.
