Okay so I've finally decided to get round to building a new rig, I've had this Pentium machine for a while now and, while it's served me well, I feel like it's finally time to upgrade I'm not building anything too fancy, I'm saving up for a trip to Japan but as it stands just now this build will still blow my old machine out of the water. The only thing I wanted advice on was the graphics card, I currently have a 6770 which just isn't good enough anymore but I didn't want to go and buy a really good graphics card only for it to be wasted because of the processor bottlenecking it. Also any suggestions about the components are welcome
I'm just taking the SSD and HDD from my old computer. I'm willing to spend £200 max on the graphics card but if it's cheaper that would be great.
Thanks in advance

If I had £200 to spend, I'd go with an nvidia GTX 760.
nvidia is better in my opinion (I'm not a fanboy) but if you want to go with AMD, then the R9 270X is the one you want. If I were you I'd compare game fps benchmarks and decided if you want that physx from nvidia
Luckily GPUs aren't as much of a hassle as CPUs are. You'll generally find a few i3s a few i5s and a few i7s and you're looking at the price and the specs and thinking "there's not even a difference what do I buy? there must be something different about them" - Which there probably is, but not something you'd notice in gaming performance.
Honestly I play generally low demanding games and max those out. As for the likes of BF3 I need most things on low and I'm running an AMD 7750, but it still looks amazing.Go to the full post
