I was upgrading a relatives computer which got me thinking to upgrade one of mine. It is pentium D 3.2 935 prescott on a gigabyte 965p-s3 board with an apevia 500w psu with 1 6pin pci-e connector. I was thinking switching the video card to a ati 5770? Any problems with that or better recommendations, I would sincerely appreciate some opinions. Thanks!

Okay, u might be okay with HD 5770, because above that card your CPU will bottlenecking the card itself... What is your monitor resolution?
No monitor for it yet, but I might bring a 1680x1050 22'' for it. I may upgrade to core 2 quad a little later the mobo supports it but I definitley am not looking to change everything out.
