More about5570 graphic cards
HD5570 is a minimum gaming card (low resolution 1280 x 1024) but very power efficient, probably would run on your 200watt PSU. If you are thinking more towards future proofing you would need a better card and therefore a bigger PSU. Which card is based on your monitor resolution and what budget you have for the purchase.
So what is your recommendation?The HD 5670 / 4??? series or Nvidia series?If i change to bigger PSU, what u recommend?I'm using Acer V193HQV monitor.
For the resolution on your monitor a HD4850, HD5750 or Nvidia GTS250 would do very well. A good quality 450watt psu would be enough to run any of those cards. Recommended brands amongst others Antec, Corsair, Enermax, Seasonic.
How about my 2 GB ram?Do I need to add another 2 GB for better performance?
If you have a 64bit OS 4gb is recommended.
For future proofing, which is better and good for my PC if i'm using HD5750 or HD 4850 or GTS 250?For RAM, can I use Kingson 2GB with my Corsair 2GB?I am planning to buy 400 watt PSU, is it sufficient for my system and lastly, do I need to buy extra fan to cool my CPU?
Thanks for the info guys..
Yes you can run ram from 2 different manufacturers. The 400watt PSU needs to be good quality like a Corsair CX400.
