Hey guys, i'm new to this forum but i know it will be alot of help so im going to try and see if you guys can help me out. i'll start of with my PC specs.
CPU - AMD athlon 651 x4 3ghz quadcore
MOBO - Gigabyte GA-A55M-S2V
RAM - 8 gig ddr3 corsair
CURRENT GPU - GTX 460 1gb
OS- WINDOWS 7
PSU - 500 WATTS
At the moment i'm looking to purchase a new GPU as i feel mine is abit outdated ( gtx 460 ) from various people I've been suggested the GTX 660, AMD Radeon HD 7850 and the Radeon R9 270 ( price range is around £140)
My problem is that im scared the graphics cards may be bottle-necked by my CPU which is : http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/B0072PRPP4
could you guys possibly shed some light onto the situation for me and tell me if or how much my GPU would be bottlenecked ? and on another note would it be a better idea for me to purchase and MOBO/CPU for around the same price instead of getting the GPU ?
Thanks in advance guys ! - Zaltor
