I had an Athlon 64 x2 5200+ paired with a 5770 and the CPU turned out to be a huge bottleneck. After I upgraded the CPU to a Phenom II X4 955 I doubled my frame rates in BFBC2 and ME2.my cpu is AMD athlon 64 x2 dual core 4600+ 2.40ghz.
i'm planning on getting a powercolor 5770 1gb vid card.
can anyone tell me if my gpu my bottlekneck from this vid card? thx.
i don't know much about cpus but this list shows it supports am2+I don't see any of the AM2+/AM3 processors on the support list for that board. You might get lucky, but I wouldn't bet on it. You might be better off looking for a Phenom I instead if you can't afford to upgrade the whole shebang. And some more memory.
I am not an expert on AMD Phenom CPUs, but I found this 8750 and it uses 95W, not 65W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-252-_-Productedit2: alright after looking further i've decided that i'll go with the phenom I 8750. it uses 65W. u guys have any thoughts on this one?
Dam it sold for 90$ shipped !There is 90 min left in this auction.
Its a Phenom II x3 720 black edition @ 2.8 with 6mb level 3 cache. 95 watts
It's only at 75$ with retail fan, so far.
It's new and worth 119.99$ retail.
It will totally smoke the Athlon II x3 435 in gaming.
