I have an older media center that is supplied with a HD 4850 and c2d e7400 that sometimes I'll run BF4 on it. It runs the game just fine for what I need since have a better gaming build. Question is since mantle is suppose to take the load off of the cpu and throw it onto the gpu, would upgrading the gpu to a r9 - 270 be worth while?

To answer your question, I don't know much about mantle. However, I have an Asus R9 270 and it performs beautifully, and I would highly recommend it.

I have no doubt it works wonderfully, just not sure if it be worth upgrading my GPU since I have no need to upgrade the CPU/Montherboard. Its just sometimes fun to sit on the couch and play some PC games with a controller then always with a mouse and keyboard.

Thanks!!
