Help me pick a gpu!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I am going to get a new gpu soon but im not sure which.
I was thinking the hd 6770 but will my cpu bottleneck me? if so, can someone suggest a video card that will run well with my cpu.

im saying this because i dont plan on upgrading my computer for maybe another year.

also, would a 500w psu run a 6770?

i want a gpu that can run starcraft 2 at high-ultra thats all really, maybe a couple of steam games if i ever feel like it but mostly starcraft 2. thats the main reason i want a decent gpu. i want to keep it as low as possible though, hd 6770s around $120 are fine.

i will run it at 1366x768 or 1280x1024

i was thinking

or
thanks!

edit:i prefer amazon.com and through amazon because it doesn't have tax and i have prime.

500w should be fine, 6770 would be a much better choice than the 5770. That 5770 is very overpriced.

Given your needs and CPU, the 6770 is a pretty solid choice.
