7850 and AMD Phenom II X4 920: is it a good couple?
I'm going to buy a Gigabyte 7850 (my 8800 is gone...). I tested it on another computer and I loved it. My current config is this: CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 920 2.81GHz Ram: 4 GB Motherboard: AsusM3A32 MVP Deluxe XFX 550W Pro Resolution: 1360x768 I would like to play Skyrim or BF3 and I'd like to spend my money without bottleneck problems or something like that. My CPU would be good enough, or I have to overclock? Should I change my thoughts and buy another graphic card (GTX 650ti, for example)?

This will be a good combo. No worries. OCing should not be necessary, but could improve overall performance.
Ok. If you are sure I won't have problem with the motherboard and there won't be CPU limitations, I will buy the 7850.
Given the relatively low resolution of your display, you will have no limitations. Have fun and enjoy the new GPU!
