Stupid unnecessary comment. My system is fine for what I use it for. Just stick to the topic.

You should really start over, but like I said don't get anything over a 7850. It would be pointless. Get a 7770 GHz edition for $100.

I see a ton of different brands for the 7770, which should I choose?

The MSi is only $70 after mail in rebate on Newegg.

What exactly bottlenecks the GPU? And will this MSI 7770 show a noticeable boost in performance over my old card?

It will be a huge jump from your old GPU. Bottlenecks occur when the GPU can't run 100% due to limitations of CPU, RAM, etc.

It's RAM. Pick the cheapest one.
