I currently have a EVGA Nvidia Geforce 8800 GT 512MB With AMD Athlon X2 4850e

Reason for upgrading is that i seem to get some lag in games like WOW, Arma 2, NFSMW<---The new one,MW2
I don't think mt temps are bad cause i cant really see the temps cause when i minimize the temps drop to fast to see whats causing the lag, and my PC gets quite slow at some points.
Do you think my Current GPU is bottle necked cause of my CPU?

GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

What i want to achieve is Playing these games and a few more with no issues at max settings.
And better Speeds on my PC

Link to my other thread asking about PSU showing what i want to buy. i really don't want to go much over the budget its at which is 670.00

Any advice to what to get is helpful, but also would like the know how well the build i want is good enough.

And one last question lol what the heck is the difference between the 7770 i have chosen and the ones from other manufacturers? cause some prices differ alot for the same 7770 Series

The main price diffrences in teh 7770 series is the coolers and overclocking done from the 3rd party company.

I recomend any PSU from Corsair or Seasonic that is 80+ ceritfied.

If you have 4GB of ram, I recomend you get 8Gb, although DDR2 is expensive.

If you dont want to get a new AMD processor, I suggest you overclock the crap out of your processor.

Based on the items you are looking to buy on your other thread; those selections will not be bottle-necked by a 6 core FX-6300. In regards to your other question, the main difference between all the different 7770's that you can get is better cooling, and factory OC. Usually the higher priced ones have a big fan or two fans instead of just one, some are factory overclocked by 10 - 15% which will usually give you an extra 5 - 10fps (yes this is noticeable). The advantage of a factory overclock is that you get better performance and can still get a warranty repair if something happens to it.

*You asked a lot of questions in one thread, so let me know if this helps or if you need anymore info.
