  1. Tom's has an article for you here. ATI's newer cards (HD 5XXX series) are not as power hungry as some the older cards.
  2. maybe but HD 5750(smallest 5000 series) needs 620w cooler and i have 500w abailable.
    Thanks for your answer anyway

    No, the 5750 can run on a 500w just fine....

  6. oh thanks...i´d been reading and people say that ati works better with AMD and Nvidia qith intel...this is true(i dont think so)?and with 5750 and intel dual core...its possible to run for example,GTA IV at top graphs?
  7. No that is not true, as long as you do not have a bottleneck it does not matter if it is NV or ATI......

    GTA4 is a poorly coded game, in order to max it out you need $$$ , you are better off playing that game on a PS3 or 360....
  8. ok tks 4 ur time
  9. Here's an excerpt from Guru's review of the 4870, 5850, and 5870 - max board mower of the 5850 is 151w, depending on your other expansion cards. This page shows you need a minimum of a 500w PSU.
  10. OK, am I the only one thinking that:

    "i have 500w cooler and i want to buy a graphic card...whats the best i can buy with this cooler?"

    was supposed to say:

    "i have 500w PSU and i want to buy a graphic card...whats the best i can buy with this PSU ?
  11. I just figured he meant PSU. I can't think of a CPU (or GPU, for that matter) that would need a 500w cooler. And even if he does have a 500w cooler AND NOT a 500w PSU, whatever we suggest won't harm him or his rig.
  12. i said cooler beacause im learnt english and i didnt know how it really said xD.but yes i meant PSU
  13. It's OK, we are working to help you!
