  1. Your processor will certainly limit the potential of your 4770. You will be able to play all of those games, at what settings I do not know. If you don't plan on upgrading the rest of your system, I would say that you should buy a card that is 30 or 40 dollars less, maybe the 4670 for example.
  2. Thanks for the reply but i want to play all those games at maximum settings and with also i will use HD 4770 on my pci-e x16 1.0 slot will it effect cards performance because its a pci-ex16 2.0 card. I will upgrade my mobo and my processor next year till now i will play with this configuration only .

    AND SORRY FOR DOUBLE POSt
  5. Not a chance in hell im afraid, I have a 4770 with a core 2 and that cant play Warhead at max settings so you got no chance.
    Now if you are happy to knock the detail and settings down a notch or two then you may be in with a shout but to be honest the CPU really will hold the card back. I agree with annisman
    that buying a card like the 4670 would make more sense. Probably still restricteda bit by the CPU but a better match than the 4770 which to be honest you dont really need at your resolution anyway.

  6. NOW I KNOW THAT MY CPU WILL HOLD MY CARD BACK BUT TELL ME USING A HD 4770 ON A PCI-E X16 1.0 SLOT IS OK OR NOT .
  7. Yes its fine you can use a 2.0 card on a 1.0 slot and a 1.0 card in a 2.0 slot. It wont limit it either

  8. Thanks Mactronix for your great help . Ok tell me my mobo only support pentium dual core processors is there any way to upgrade it to core 2 quad. If there is something please tell me
  9. What you would need to do is go to your MOBO manufacturers page. Under products or some such you will find your board and then you need to look for Bios updates. These will list what updates if any there are to allow your board to support any aditional CPU's. It will also have a link to how to flash the Bios and which utility to use to do it.

    If you are unsure then tell me your MOBO and i will take a look for you.

  12. I think the 800mhz FSB has knackered that sketch right there, I could be wrong though.
  13. I have checked and there does not appear to be the upgrade option for your Motherboard. Its not that much of an issue though really. In much the same way as you dont really need a 4770 you dont really need a Quad either. A pentium dual core processor will give you a very decent boost in performance over your pentium.

  14. From some where i heard that HD 4770 takes space of 2 slots. But i see that my motherboard dont have much space .
    You can see the screen shot of my motherboard using the following link

  15. Again i must stress that teh 4770 is over kill really for your resolution and currant CPU, but its up to you.
    The 3 White slots are PCI slots. If you do not have anything in the slot nearest the PCIE slot. (the highest one on the picture) Then it should fit ok .

  16. I understand mate but what can i do . Can you tell me my motherboard only supports upto 2GB of ram officialy but can i use 2gb of ram in one slot and 1 gb of ram in other slot
  17. No it means 1 GB in each slot

    Mactronix
  18. I konow its officialy but isn`t theres a hack that allows me 3 GB ram
  19. No. If you are going to buy a 4770, then your CPU will limit your FPS plain and simple. If your going to buy a 4770, you need to upgrade your CPU. The 2GB of ram is OK. If your motherboard only supports 2GB, then that is it, 2GB. You can get a decent motherboard, a decent cpu, and ram for really cheap.

    Ram (4GB) 47$


    Buy these parts and you will still have a bottleneck on the 4770, but probably only a very slight one, espescially if you OC that CPU, which I can imagine you don't know how to do however.
  21. Yes Annisman you are right i don't know how to over clock and and also i don't have sufficient cooling solutions for that. If you know please explain it to me.

    Thanks in advance
