Video card question.

#1Ame_no_MurakumoPosted 8/4/2013 6:46:32 PM
What is the best card I can use with my AMD FX-4100 3.6ghz without running into any bottlenecking? I have an HD7750 1GB right now.

My motherboard is a GA-78LMT-USB3

I know I need to upgrade my power supply, but that's fine. Only have a 300w one at the moment.

My friend Snuckie can help you. He is very professional with everything regarding AMD! Now lets just wait for him.

But if you want NVIDIA, I would recommend you a Gtx 760 by EVGA.

Bottlenecking is dependent on what you're doing at the time. You could get a 7970 without your CPU bottlenecking in a few games. In others a 7850 would be held back. Just depends.

I think you forgot to throw in a recommendation for a Sabertooth Z87 motherboard.

I would, but he just asked for a videocard, and he prefers AMD CPUs

I'm fine with getting an Nvidia card. It doesn't really matter to me.
