Best GPU for this CPU

Okay so I am building my brother a computer off my old CPU and I was wondering what is the best one I can get without bottleneck? The CPU is a AMD Athlon II x2 240 2.8 GHz, it's going to have a after market cpu heatsink so it can overclock. If overclocking will enable it to run a better card then I'll overclock it for him to run it. Please any help with this?

  1. Hmm you do have a AM3 CPU. You do possibly have the ability to upgrade to a better CPU if you are worried about not being able to handle a more capable card. Would you by chance know the motherboard you are using.
  2. Oh right sorry forgot to put that it's right here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157291 but he doesn't want to have to buy a new CPU right now because he doesn't have a very big budget but I just want to know the best he can get with this CPU so I know what to look for
  3. Best answer
    A 7770 or 650 ti, for that cpu and budget.
    When he can get a budget for a cpu, tell him to get the fx-6300 or above, the motherboard supports it.
  4. Oh ha thanks DJ ^^ I'll let him know and thanks for your help
