I have an AMD 64 4400+ X2
i'm going to puchase an HD4770 soon
will my processor bottleneck this card?
if yes.. will i still have smooth frame rates?
i don't need 100 frames+
60-ish is fine by me

so let's say i'm playing a game where the HD4770 is bottlenecked at 60 frames (when it should be getting 100)
if i turn on AA would it remain at 60fps? or drop even lower?

NO it should remain the same.... Infact if u ever come across a CPU bottleneck you should turn up all the settings until the framerate shows a drop....This ensures your using your graphics card to its full potential.

yup it's not the greatest
maybe you should get a smaller screen, and use the money for a better video card?
maybe get 2 4770's :D
