To start, im currently running a overclocked radeaon 4650 1gbddr2 with a Pentium E5700+4gbddr3 and 450 watt psu. Can someone please help me decide what would be my best option for a ruffly $80 gpu upgrade. I also don't have any preference over ATI or Nvidia I just need the best price/performance ration.

how bad would my bottle neck be with the second chipset I've been eyeing the 6670, but is spending more and going with the 7750 a better option to stay "future proof" it seems like the 7000 series is a bigger jump.

I agree with djangoringo. The performance difference is significant. Make sure you get a card with GDDR5, not DDR3.

Both cards listed have 1GB DDR5, the 7750 offers much better performance, it's worth the extra dough.

Thanks for the input django, I will try and go for the 7750. But like I said earlier how bad will the bottleneck be? a little off topic from the thread but should I try and snag a core2duo/core2quad and salvage my mobo or upgrade completely? If so would the amd APU's be a nice combo with the 7750?

The cpu(E5700) won't bottleneck those two cards mentioned.
