  1. Hi guys sorry for yet another thread like this but my specs are a tad bit lower than the usual "is X good for 1366 or overkill?" thread plus I barely got any stock knowledge or experience for this gen of cards/games, my current specs are

    Windows 7 64bit
    Intel Pentium Dual E5700 3.0ghz
    4GB RAM
    9800GT 1GB
    Coolermaster Extreme Powerplus 460w
    Samsung 18.5inch 1366x768

    and I plan to either get a 7770 or 7750 however I just realized the 7770 might be overkill for my res already and besides my Dualcore might bottleneck it also, and I'd prefer on saving rather than getting the fastest I can, especially since I also think I need a better processor

    So do you think this setup plus a 7750 to replace the 9800 enough for somewhat current games(excluding the real machine hogs that aren't really that good like Crysis 3) like say Tomb Raider, Far Cry 3 or Skyrim will be good enough?

    I don't really need to max these, atleast get 40 fps medium/high no AA, low shadows on any of those because this 9800 can't even do that

    The CPU will bottleneck the GPU either way. You wont be able to play C3 on high settings, maybe not even medium. C3 is one of the most demanding games out right now.

    The 7770 is a weak card. It can play C3, but it cant play it at high.
