I'm not so sure about the 7750 because I don't have the hardware to make the PCI-e 3.0 worth it.

My current specs:

Amd Athlon II X3 455 3.3Ghz

Radeon HD 4250 integrated

4GB DDR3 Ram

500GB Hard drive

If you know of a better card for about the same price, let me know.

THANKS!

Update:

The 6770 has a faster clock and more stream processors than the 7750. Doesn't that make the 6770 the better card? If that's not true PLEASE explain it to me.

    Half of the time PC games don't make good use of the PCI-E 2.0 lanes. Monster cards like the GTX 680 and Radeon 6990 barely make use of the PCI-E 2.0 lanes The 7750 isn't exactly the fastest card on the planet so it could actually get by in a PCI-E 1.0 slot. I wouldn't worry about the PCI-E 3.0 thing unless you're using the graphic card for encryption.

    The 6770 is slightly faster but the 7750 consumes far less power. You can actually run a 7750 with a decent 300w power supply. I would encourage you to look at a Radeon 7770 instead. It offers superior performance compared to both card you listed and it consumes less power than a 6770 thanks to the 28nm die shrink. You're getting a little bit more bang for your buck with the 7770.

    You can't compare the clock speed and stream processor of those 2 cards. The reason is those cards don't share the same architecture. Look at the CPU market for an example. A Core i5-2500k clocked to 4ghz is still faster than a Core i5-750 clocked to 4ghz.

    I doubt the Pci-e3 will make much of a difference as this is not a bandwidth mega card i'd personally get the 7750 for heating/power/sound reasons
