Hi. I have a AMD FX-6200 Six core processor and a Radeon HD 7700 GPU and I'm considering buying a GTX 770 so that I can achieve higher FPS on upcoming games like Battlefield 4 on Ultra settings. Would a 770 increase FPS in-game or would my processor restrict the increase. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

If your power supply can handle it you should be fine. Get the 770

If there is a bottleneck it would be minor, and you can always overclock your processor. My 6100 has been running at 4.0ghz since the week I got it about 18 months ago with no issues. Just get a descent aftermarket cooler.

What sort of FPS do you get on graphics intensive games?

This is hard to answer since it can vary wildly depending on the game and how I'm playing it. When I say how I'm playing, I mean I run an EyeFinity setup. For the games that support it well I run at 5760x1080. With 2x 7950's, I'm able to run most games on high at this resolution and still maintain aroudn 60fps (AA usually around 2x). Off the top of my head the last graphics intense titles I've run are BioShock, Crysis 3, Tomb Raider and Far Cry 3. Couldnt max any of them at EyeFinity Resolution (by max I mean everything on with 8x AA) but they all ran on high/ultra with no problems. If I drop down to one screen (1920x1080p) I can pretty much max any game with descent crossfire support (especially with the new driver to address frame dropping). I havent seen any sort of bottleneck that I would blame on my processor.

Well I'm sold. Thanks for the reply. Looks like I'll be getting a GTX 770
