HD6870 or no?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, it's been a while since ive last wrote in this forum.
i currently own a pc with 4g ram, e7400 @ 3.8ghz, hd4870. I haven't been all into gaming lately on the pc ever since i got the xbox. However, i love how crysis looks on the pc, so i might be thinking of going back to pc gaming. i am thinking saving up for an hd6870...however im concerned that my e7400 will bottleneck it.(i will be gaming at 1080p) so my question is...
is it worth spending 200 ish on the 6870? or should i just save up and get it on theh xbox, which obviously doesnt look as good as the pc but still sweet?
