  1. You can use these benchmarks as a start http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Zotac/GeForce_GTX_465/29.html
    If any more help is needed list your full computer specs; CPU, Ram, PSU size and so on.
  2. Here is my full computer specs:
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.33 GHZ
    Ram: 4 GB
    System type: 64-bit operating system
    Motherboard name: Asus IPIBL-LB(Benicia)

    i don't know about PSU size. ( how can i find out?)
  3. I take that this is a OEM prebuilt system Dell, HP or etc. Just list the model number if that is the case.
  4. My computer Compaq and the model number is: CQ5115UK
  5. The PSU is 300watt. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01781316&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&lang=en&product=3986409
    The best GPU that would run on a 300 watt is HD5670. The other option is a new PSU with a better card like HD5770
  6. how can if find out what my current GPU is?
  7. I searched for HD 5670 in amazon and Google but i found many result for it such as: Vertex3D/ATI Radeon HD 5670 512MB or SAPPHIRE TECHNOLOGY Radeon HD 5670 HM - 1 GB GDDR5 and many other with HD 5670 in their description.
    I don't know which one is better or if they are the same thing.

    what if i change my PSU to 400 watt? can i get a better GPU?
  8. HD5670 all of them are about the same apart from installed memory and difference in manufacturers warranty.
    Yes! A good quality 400watt like Corsair http://www.ebuyer.com/product/150985 could drive HD4850, HD5750, GTS250 and HD5770 with the last one being the best.
  9. I found GIGABYTE ATI RADEON HD 5770 1024MB 128BIT DDR3 DVI D-SUB HDMI CROSSFIRE PCIE GRAPHICS CARD for £80. ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/GIGABYTE-RADEON-1024MB-CROSSFIRE-GRAPHICS/dp/B0037REOS2/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1275849619&sr=8-7 )
    is it any good? can i play games with 1920x1080 resolution with this GPU?
    and does it fit on my motherboard?
  10. Hang on I smell something fishy here Gigabyte by MSI that does simply not happen. A HD5770 does not come in low profile as seen and MSI does not produce cards for their competition at Gigabyte.
