I'm building my 5th PC, since the last one was an XP machine this time i went for a Win7 one:
- Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300
- DDR2 dual channel 4gb 800Hz
- hd 5750
It's pretty much me recovering old pieces i had lying around and putting them together, what i have in mind now is this, what's the most powerful GPU i could add to this build before the CPU becomes a bottleneck ?
I think a Radeon HD7770 would work quite fine with that system, I know I had one with an Athlon II X4 at the time so yeah.
Never had that but i heard many good things about it, if i remember correctly people played the witcher 3 on that GPU without any issue at release.
It's a very underrated and power efficient card that doesn't even require auxilliary power, just PCIe. It performs about as fast as an HD5850 (which was at the time of release a performance crown bearer) if memory serves.
