Hey guys I was wondering if an APU A8 5500 would bottleneck a Radeon 7770 or a 7850. Anyway I need help asap because I'm going to be ordering my graphics card soon.

Thanks!

It will usually be game dependant as to whether the CPU will be used more than the GPU so to speak. There won't be that much of a bottleneck but the CPU will be the limiting factor when maxing out on games, but not so much that will cause your head to explode tbh, games will still enjoy having the extra grunt.

Have you considered whether your power supply (PSU) will be sufficient?

Can you provide details of your motherboard? How are you connecting your monitor to the GPU, which connection are you using?
