Alright, did some looking around and came to this conclusion. My proc would bottleneck the GTX 480 unless I oc it to round 3.6ghz. I have no problem with that, but would like to avoid it if possible. I came across this link in another thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gam ... ,3107.html
Looks like the Radeon HD 7770 is right up my alley. The price is definitely right. from what I've read my PCIe 2.0 board wont really hold back the PCIe 3.0 card. I could probably stretch my budget a bit and go with the GTX 560 if needed. So, it comes down to this. Will the HD7770 be a decent upgrade, or should I go with the GTX560? I need to pull out my PS to see what the wattage is. All I know is that it is an Antec Truepower. Not sure of the wattage. Thanks for all the suggestions.
