Which GPU with an i5 3350p?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, a friend of mine need to change the GPU of his pc.
The pc is an assembled by HP (doh.gif), with an i5 3350p (3.1 Ghz, Turbo 3.3 Ghz) which i can't oc (MB with h61 chipset).

Which GPU should be fine with this 3.1 Ghz CPU?

HD 7970 Ghz Edition 3 gb ram

HD 7950 oc edition 3gb ram

GTX 670 2 gb ram

Could these GPUs be bottlenecked by the 3350p?

My friend plays at 1080p or 1050p and need a card to play for about 3 years.

Thanks.

Any of those cards will be okay to run at stock.

if your friend is in no rush i'd recommend waiting for the 760 or 760 TIs.

The cpu is an i5 no i3. I will say to buy an 7950 custom (like sapphire boost or xfx black edition or vaporx). Thanks all thumb.gif
