Is a 1GB Radeon HD 6570 worth buying for my PC?

Is this graphics card:

good enough to run games such as DayZ? It is the best possible choice for my inspiron 560's power supply (which is 300w). I am not planning on upgrading my PSU or getting a new computer though I know I can. I just want to know if this card will be good enough to run modern games until I can get a new PC or power supply.

Any answers with information would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Best answer
    Your best possible choice to run on 300watts is HD7750! The 6570 should work though in game settings based on resolution.
  2. Complete crap not worth buying, as above get a 7750 (make sure its the 1GB GDDR5 version), or if thats too expensive a 6670 (again, 1GB GDDR5).

    But are you sure that will be ok on 300w at load? The recommended PSU for that card is 400w.
  4. Yes that card will be able to run modern games. Depending on the resolution i would say atleast high settings

    So, this one would work on 300w?

    I want to make sure that my computer is not going to blow up or anything, even after using the new card for an extended time period.

    Yes I am sure because the card typically maxes out at 43 watts and the rest of the system around 150 watts so max system load is just +/- 200 watts.
    The manufacturers recommendation is always Higher than actual since there are many crap PSU's on the market and protection against liability!

    Toms built an mini system recently using HD7750 on a 150 watt PSU! http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/mini-itx-do-it-yourself-game-console,3531.html

    That 7750 card will be fine with your current PSU as it does not require a 6 pin pcie connector and only draws a max of 43 watts under load you will be fine :)
