TERA is very CPU intensive, so you want a stronger CPU, less GPU. You should really upgrade your CPU instead of your GPU.
CPUs also do not bottleneck GPUs in any significant capacity, it's something you should not ever concern yourself with. A CPU can bottleneck a game, a GPU can bottleneck a game, but they do not bottleneck eachother in any signficant way (technically an i7-2600K will bottleneck a 7770 more than i3-3220 will, it means nothing).
Wow so MUCH misinformation in that reply.
Ahem... I really have to refrain to respond with more civility than you've directed towards me here, but I kindly ask you please explain. We are all on the same team, we all have the same interests and passions. There's no need to be nasty, if one of us can correct another, we all benefit. There is no You vs Me here at OCN, it's a community.
That said, I don't know what you would find wrong in my reply. I've used multiple 7xxx cards, I've had experiences with Phenoms, PCI-E 3.0 GPUs in PCI-E 2.0, I am familiar with Tera online and especially CPU intensive games in general.... TERA Online is an extremely CPU limited game (a very poorly coded and optimized one at that), if OP is really as poor as he says, then he's wasting his money. Granted, the 7750 is certainly nothing special, but buying a Phenom X3 am2 and a 7750 is the total opposite of where his budget should be going, he should really be buying like an athlon ii x4 and 4850 with his limited funds instead or something.
And yes, CPUs do not bottleneck GPUs in any significant capacity. GPUs do rendering, shading, lighting, etc, while CPUs do pathing, collisions, AI, etc. You can have a CPU to slow to handle a game, you can have a GPU too slow to handle a game, but a CPU's performance has very, very little impact on the speed of a GPU.
I say this as someone who has a 7950 in an i7-3770k, and a couple 7950s in a sempron doing computational analysis.

Yes, a 7750 would work in it. What exactly are you paying for all this stuff?
And the 7750 is not DDR3, it's G
DDR5, which is a derivative of DDR3, but essentially it's nothing similar at all. As long as the motherboard has a PCI-E slot, you can use a 7750 in it.
Now, it depends on what kind of PCI-E slot you have and the PCI-E controller you have (pci-e controller isn't really a big issue though). You need a PCI-E x16 slot to physically
fit a card in without using an adaptor, which that board has. Also, that board is PCi-E 2.0, not 3.0, which is fine, everything is all backwards compatible, and furthermore the 7750 and basically all single-GPU set-ups on modern cards will not saturate PCI-E 2.0 anyways (and even if they do, the performance loss is extremely negligible, you are talking like less than 5% in some obscure game no one plays and only with 3x 7970s on extreme resolutions). Although there is a bigger bottleneck to bandwidth with pci-e x4 or x1.
However we have no clue what your budget is, what you are doing, what games you play and what settings you mind to play them at. If you are looking for a yes/no on 7750 in an AM2+ board, the answer is yes. Now I don't know what you are doing, and no one else does either, but I'm 99.99% certain that buying an AM2+ board and a 7750 like this is a really stupid idea. Really stupid.
Could be wrong, maybe you are buying this from a friend for pennies or you found this stuff on the side of the street... but if you are paying money for any of this, I'm pretty sure you are making a huge mistake.
And to all those who say i should upgrade my CPU sure i accept donations heh im playing blacklight, tera and bf3 a bit and all of those games work well just can't max graphics.And to those who helped me i would buy you all a round of beer so just have one of me.
yea, you should really just tell us how much money you have, give a bit more background - do you live near microcenter, are you able to buy items off ebay (with your budget, you are forced to buy some items ebay, not to worry, sometimes its better for certain items), do you stream or do anything intensive besides gaming like streaming, etc.
It just sounds like you are about to make a huge mistake, you are buying some extremely crappy and old components. Literally everything you picked out, besides the GPU, is old and weak, and is no cheaper than much more powerful, and modern, options.
But no one else is telling you this because you are asking "will X fit in Y". And you have your answer, yes, it will fit. Maybe I'm reading too deep into the lines, maybe you got all this stuff free, but dear lord do not pay more than... oh, maybe $30 for the case, cpu, and mobo combined.Edited by Belial - 5/12/13 at 10:34pm
