HI am new to this forum, i am deciding which card to buy for my pc i will not be playing at high resolution above 1280x1024.

1. which one is the right choice for gaming not interested in the dx11 cause i am using windows xp.

IS the 4770 a good buy http://www.compusa.com/applications/SearchTools/item-de...

or is the 5670 1gb a better choice since it is a 5000 series. http://www.compusa.com/applications/searchtools/item-de...

Pc Specs

Intel P4 3.4ghz ht
2gb corsair ddr2 ram 800mhz
Windows xp professional sp3
intel945p chipset
Ati radeon x600se 256mb.
dell stock 375watt psu. i noticed the psu only have one 6 pin connector. i know the psu is powerful cause i saw someone powered a 9800gtx with it.

Best solution

The 4770 will outperform a 5670. Since you are still on XP DX10 or 11 aren't even a concern to you. The Dell PSU's are pretty hardy and as you mentioned has a 6 pin so you should be good to go. I don't think I would power a 9800GTX+ though. I wouldn't put to much more money into your current system though. Your P4 is going to hold you back more than anything now. I would start saving for a complete system replacement and let this get you by until then. Enjoy.

The HD 4770 is faster than the HD 5670.

The card itself should have a single 6 pin. It probably comes with a (2) 4pin molex to 6 pin adapter. You won't need that.

Where do you see the 4pin molex? I haven't seen those on a PCIe card since the days of the 6800/x8xxs.

The P4 will hold you back. GTA4 will be quite bad, the other games you listed slightly less so. You really need to get a new system. I'm not sure I'd pair anything faster then a 9800GT with a P4.

i was talking about the cable spilter that the card comes with it the card itself has a 6 pin connector 2 4 pin molex connector cable is seperate. and will the games be playable with the 4770 currently with the x600se i get roughly 20 fps in crysis and 25 fps in farcry which is good for a 4 year old card.

thanks for your help is there an 6 pin adapter i could buy because my 6 pin from the psu is rather short.

they make 6 pin extentions. I'd make sure you need one first.

The thing that comes with the card is an adapter for those that don't have the 6pin plug. Have you tried making sure your 6pin plug is free and not wrapped around anything?
