  1. Which CPU do you have installed and what is the size of the Power supply?
  2. Intel Quad Q8200 @ 2.33GHz and the PSU says Total Wattage 550 on the side :)

    A HD5770 would be well matched with you CPU at stock clocks but if you are into overclocking a HD5850 will do well. 550watt PSU should be fine for either.
  4. Thanks for your help.

    How much does the HD5770 out spec my current 9600gt... and do I have the correct bay and connectors for this card?
  5. In this link http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GTX_465/29.html you can see the performance difference between GT240 (~9600GT performance) and HD5770 in multiple games and resolutions. The HD5770 is about 2 x the power of 9600GT.
    The card requires a PCIe-x16 slot and a 6 pin PCIexpress connector from the PSU which is probably the same as your 9600GT you should have both.
  6. thank you very much indeed bro, loads of help!!
