Hi there. I am in the process of building a new system based on the new APU A10 6800K and I am stuck on what GPU from AMD should I go for.

I read that the HD 7750 and 7770 are the onces to go for but I want to know what is the best one that I can go for from the HD7000 series with out reaching a bottleneck.

If you are going to be using at least a midrange discrete card, which the 7700 series is, why even bother with an APU?

the idea is to know what to go for as I want to know what to go for.

your APU should have no problem running the 7770 you could even move up to the 7950 if you wanted to.

You're going to be looking at performance around the Phenom II x4 series of the same speed, so as Slayerx said you will have no issues. The HD 7870 seems to be a popular choice.
