, I recently bought a business computer from dell, and it has 2 PCI-E slots. I am Wondering if a ATI HD5770 would be a good choice to make it a gaming computer? It already has 3036Mb Memory, 240Gb HDD and a Intel Dual Core processor. Would this be the ideal graphics card to buy? I'm on a budget of £150
I just put a 5770 in the Vostro 400, which I believe, is very close to the same case. It was a tight fit but wow, this card absolutely destroys the games! BF Bad Company 2 @ 1920x1200 and High settings is absolutely stunning. My 3DMark06 went from low 2000s to 10800.
I'm asking for the power brick with the sticker with a lot of wires going out of it, it's plugged into the AC cable connected to the wall. Also I need specific specs to give an opinion. Dell isn't known to provide PSUs designed to take on a mid-range card like the 5770. Otherwise with your budget may I suggest a CPU upgrade?
I have a built-in Intel graphics card, don't know how much memory it has, but i know it isn't what i need. i Know i need a PSU, but i cannot afford a graphics card and a processor upgrade. im only 15!! i have only £150 to spare. any ideas?
That is adequete, go for it, but get it from a name brand. If you don't you might find it pooping out on your the day the warrenty ends or sooner. When you mean X-fire are you saying Crossfire, then no your 500W can't handle it.
