Followed on from http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/916373-pc/67527170

seen this for ~ 78 (XFX Radeon HD 7770 1GB)

in short:

Spec:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 2.6ghz
4GB RAM
Corsair 520w modular PSU
Asus P5k-E motherboard (Intel LGA775 / P35 )


So the 7770 i linked seems to be OK right? Not sure what my options are.

Sure, the 7770 is fine. Personally I'd probably shoot for a GTX 650 Ti such as http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-msi-gtx-650-ti-oc-power-edition-28nm-pcie-30-%28x16%29-5400mhz-gddr5-gpu-993mhz-cores-768-mhdmi but it's going to cost you an extra 22. I don't think it would be held back that badly by your E6750, but I also don't know if it's worth the extra 22.

why don't you look at a R7 270 or 7950 they are much better than a 7770
but if 7770 is good for your budget than go for it

Meh, IMO it's time to save up and buy a new build. Those specs are pretty poor.

Isn't 650Ti boost only about 22 more than 650Ti, though, and a bigger step up than 7770-650Ti? And 660 isn't much more than that...

I agree 100%, he might as well just get a Titan.

Hmmm i don't really wanna keep creeping the price up, especially an extra 40. I was thinking of spending no more than about 100 on it, and as protools said..

Can't really afford a full on new build yet, so looking for a graphics card that will see me through for a while at the current spec.

Unless spending a bit extra money on a better card (that isn't bottlenecked) would see me through for even longer..?

That CPU is a huge bottleneck. I had a e5200 @ 3.663Ghz and there was a huge difference switching for a Xeon x3220 (Q6600) @ 3.2Ghz. I didn't think my 4850 was being held back but after switching to a $35 CPU that no one even wanted; I'm getting a lot better performance.

Almost everything is stronger than a HD4850 now; imagine the bottleneck.

is there anything worth upgrading my CPU to without having to change the motherboard too?
