As the title says ive been looking for a good graphic card for my computer, what i hace is a ZT and yes i know they are the bust but i just wanted to know what would be goot to hook up for my PC. Right now i have a 300watt power supply but will be upgrading. Here is my actuall specs:
Processor:AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2.61GHz
Memory:4GB Ddr2 Sdram
Hard Drive:320GB Sata Hdd
CD/DVD Drive VD-/+RW
Graphic:Nvidia GeForce 6150SE
Modem:V.90 56K PCI DataFax Modem for Windows
Memory card reader :Yes
USB Port:2 Front + 4 Back
Video:1 x VGA output
Audio Port:Three back-panel connectors for line-in, line-out, microphone, two front-panel connectors for headphones/microphone
Keyboard/Mouse PS/2 Port:Yes
Operating System :Windows Vista Home Premium with all original preinstalled software’s from ZT Group
Look, anything faster than a Radeon 4670 will be hampered by your Athlon 5200 at it's stock speeds. Even though the 5200 chip (I'm assuming a Windsor) could probably get to around 3.0Ghz with the stock cooling, you have a little prebuilt there and I doubt it's too overclocking friendly. Anyway this is what I would do. I would go with a decent Power Supply of at least 550W such as
While a Radeon 5770 may be a little overkill for your system, you will be able to use it in your next build when you upgrade your motherboard, CPU, and RAM. Your PSU will also allow you to ad another 5770 latter on to run in crossfire for even more performance. Now you may notice that some 5770s only have one crossfire connector while others have two. This isn't a problem if you are only going to use two cards, but if you wanted to use three then the second card would need to have two and the third card would either need to have two or have the connector in the place that the first card does not, thus preventing it from connecting with the first card but allowing it to connect with the second.
Anyway if you're not really interested in reusing the PSU and Video card in another computer down the line then save some money and go with a good 400-500W PSU unit and a Radeon 5750 to save some money.
