Upgrading friends rig

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am wondering if this would be an acceptable upgrade or if this will be bottlenecked also does he have enough power?

600w cooler master the expensive modular one
AMD 555 be 3.2 c3 oc to 3.6
hyper 212+
4gb ddr3 cas 8
MSI 870-g45 with aftermarket mosfet cooling
Asus 4850 512mb

I am looking at getting the following deal
XFX 4850 1GB and run in xfire

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150482
after MIB its like 47$ card

Go for it? I know the 2nd card will only be running in x4 but i know that cant bottleneck a 4850 that much and for this price the performance will have to be worth it putting this card in slot 1 for the 1gb and dropping his old 512mb card in slot 2.

If he already has one, then it would be good, but it would only run at x4... Maybe sell the 4850 and get a better single card.
