Will this graphics card work with pc, help

Kinda of a newbie when it comes to this stuff so need some help.

Would this graphics card (Link 1) be compatible with my PC (Link 2).

If so, do you think this graphics card could run Guild Wars 2 smoothly on mid settings?

  1. the Power Supply (PSU) in your computer is only 300W and is too weak to power that video card. Does it fit and does it work? Yes if it is not underload. If you play games with it, the PSU may give out at any point. The card is relatively weak as well and Guild Wars 2 is pretty poorly coded so you won't enjoy playing it (even if the power supply manages to power it) at 20-30ish fps.
  2. Do you have any suggestions for a card that is compatible with my PC and would play it better?

    Unfortunately your computer is held back by that PSU. There are plenty of better video cards out there, but none of them will work properly in that computer unless you replace the PSU as well.

    Would this be compatible on all other aspects? It says 300w PSU
    Even if its not the greatest, would it be decent?
  5. Your 300W PSU is more than adequate to power that card. The HD 6570 will only require 50W at max demand. That relates to a little over 4A on the +12V rail. You are fine with that card.
    You could even move up to this card for a nice improvement: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-11202-00-20G/dp/B007B5V614/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1366513143&sr=1-1&keywords=hd+7750

    So just reassuring the issue, the first one I posted you were talking about? My 300W PSU should handle it cleanly?

    According to AMD System Power Requirement, both 6570 and 7750 requires a 400W or higher PSU to ensure system stability underload. The original poster can certain;y try to put those into his computer with that generic 300W PSU, but the chance that the PSU will give out/die is much higher. I wouldn't undercut 100W from the recommended power requirement from AMD, not even from a reliable name brand PSU, let alone a generic no name 300W.

    I guess if you are that tight in budget, you have no other choice but to try it out and see how long it lasts. Like I said, will both cards work in your computer? The answer is yes, but the question is how long does it last and how stable it is. If the PC shut down in the middle of a game, you know why and and if it does that continuously, you know its time to change PSU.

    You can't go by those specs. Those are written by lawyers. His PSU is MORE than adequate for a card that card. Use a PSU calculator and you'll see that I am correct.

    Yes, you can use the HD 6570 with no worry.

    I don't agree with you. The recommended specs from AMD is the result of internal lab tests and research by AMD engineers, not lawyers. I already write more than enough info in this thread and I'll leave it up to the original poster to decide.

    Fine. I refuse to argue.

    I don't agree with you. The recommended specs from AMD is the result of internal lab tests and research by AMD engineers, - Taking into account the crap "power supplies" that are sold to poor unsuspecting people - not lawyers. I already write more than enough info in this thread and I'll leave it up to the original poster to decide.


    IE they often inflate the requirements to take craptastic units that inflate their wattage into account.
