Hello, I am look for a good graphics card for around 100 to 200.
I want to change the graphics card to a gaming graphics card as the Quadro FX 3400/4400 is not made for gaming.

I was looking at the ATI
XFX Radeon HD 5750 1GB DDR5 PCIE Graphics Card HD575XZNFC
cost around $140.
Is that a good one or is there a better one around the price I mentioned or cheaper

Computer Configuration is:
Biostar Motherboard w/Nvidia graphics
AMD Athlon II X3 425 2.7GHZ
4 GB Memory
Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit
256 MB NVIDIA Quadro FX 3400/4400 Graphics Card
450 Watt power supply


Thank You

Yeah a 5750/5770 would be a good choice for you with that power supply. What are the PSU specs anyways? 450W should be fine unless it is some lowend OEM unit.

The HD5770 is well worth the extra money over the HD5750 imo.

^It isn't out yet, we can only speculate on performance, requirements, and price.

PS, I saw some articles that it was pushed back to Feb 5th.

Ok here's the motherboard I have Biostar MCP6P M2+

So what's the difference between the 5770 and 5750

The HD5770 has 80 more stream processors, 4 more texture units and the default GPU clocks speed is 150mhz higher. Overall it is probably 15-20% faster and costs about $20 more.

I love MIR's. I like getting those checks in the mail.

Powercolor is like any other brand, the cards are the same, it looks like this has a different cooler but has alot of possitive feedback on Newegg. I've heard people have had issues with their support if you have to replace it under warranty, but you never really know until you have to deal with them. I am assuming they are like any other company, they work with you on the phone until they are satisfied that it is a hardware issue.

Hey for $145 I'd buy it.
