  1. it wont bottle neck your system. your system will bottleneck the card.
  2. Yep, that's a pretty old processor compared to the card. The card is quite a bit more advanced, a few generations newer.
  3. Yeah, your system can't even come close to fully utilizing that card. I'd go with something cheaper unless you're upgrading your whole system piece-by-piece.

    (I'd also worry a bit about the power supply. Athlons are power-hungry, so are gaming-grade AMD cards, and if your PSU is as old as your processor, it's probably reaching the end of its life. You might have power issues.)
  4. please do not worry about power supply, can you please suggest another limit for graphic card which my system will not bottleneck?
  5. I think a Radeon 7770 is a good choice. Sure your system is old; but its what you have...

    Power is not a concern. You have a 65 watt CPU and the 7770 is 80 watts.

    Your thinking about bottlenecking in a weird way. You just have to understand it...how to explain?

    But it doesn't matter anyway, since your limited to the PC you have. Sure you could get a Radeon 2400 pro, it's over 30 times weaker(graphically) than a 7770 and uses only 20 watts. Your system wouldn't bottleneck it, but it would be useless. You have to get a GPU your system will bottleneck. At least with a 7770 you'll be ble to play some games. You could run a 7970 GHz edition if you wanted too.

    Ya, an Asus RoG board with an i7-2700K screaming at 5.2GHz would be great. And you could easily get 100% out of anything, including crossfire or whatever. But there is a money thing.

    Here is guy with a 4800+ and 7770. Many games are so GPU dependant, bottlenecking - even with an old CPU is minimal.

    thank you very much, one last question please choose between 6850, 7770, and GTX 460 which will give my CPU most performance
  10. Your welcome.

    The 6850 and the 7770 are about the same, performance wise. However the 7770 is more efficient(as it's built on the lastest tech, 28nm). It uses only 80 watts vs. 127 for the 6850.

    The GTX 460 is the least powerful of the three, but uses the most electricity (160 watts).
