The max I would try is an HD5670. | Report abuse ranij93 July 1, 2010 4:41:39 PM Yes iwas thinking the same 5750 really high end card for so low psu usage . but what do you think about the upgrade from 8600gt to 5670. the 5670 is alot faster. | Report abuse jyjjy Graphics card Master July 1, 2010 4:46:29 PM It should be well over twice as fast. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Upgrade from 8600GT ..> Related ressources: ForumVideoEditing- Upgrade from Geforce 8600GT ?
