Hello TH,

I am looking for a good upgrade for my Asus EAH 4890 card.

My resolution is 1920x1080

My CPU is AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.2GHz

I am considering the 7770 2GD5 however I am unsure how much of an upgrade it would be.

My PSU is 650 watt so that shouldn't be an issue

EDIT: After browsing abit I came across this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Would this be a noticeable upgrade?

Thanks in advance

The 7770 wouldn't be a big upgrade, no. The 4890 was one of the top cards of its day and still ranks pretty well. The 7850 would be a better upgrade performance-wise.

This is just a bit over $165 but has a rebate offer (price after rebate = $155)

okay I think this might be the choice

just to be clear this is more of an upgrade to my 4890.

how much of an upgrade is it? Is there anything that is maybe like a little better for a better price?

It would be hard to do better within your stated budget.
