  1. Best answer
  2. would i have to upgrade my power supply since it is only 300w
  3. Both these cards will run fine on a 300watt PSU
  4. what would be a good choice from the 5570 was looking at the openbox gogreen or ax5570 i think both are by powercolor....P.S. thanks for all the help....
  5. They should all perform about the same, the two powercolor cards you point out are identical specs, only the openbox one can be used in a small form factor PC since it is low profile ready.
  6. is there an nvidia equivalent as i think it may run better since my motherboard has a nvidia chipset although that may not matter...
  7. There are some nvidia cards out there but they would not run any better. Look at GT220 or GT240 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048%20106793264&name=GeForce%20G%2fGT%20series
