I currently have a 5770 in my machine. The CPU is a Core I5-750, the 1st generation one. I am wondering if the 7850 would eb wasted in my rig due to a CPU bottleneck? At this point I am not interested in upgrading my entire system, only the video card if it isn't going to be held back by this CPU.
Hi - all systems have a bottleneck of sorts somewhere. What are your other
specs? PSU, MOBO, Ram, etc.
Need to be sure it can handle the upgrade.
There is a huge perf increase with the 7850 vs 5770, so if
there's nothing inhibitng it, it would be an ex upgrade.
