Hi there, I am going to get a graphics card upgrade and have decided I am either going to get an ATI Radeon HD 5750, 5670 or 4770. But I'm not quite sure if any of these would work in my system.

Here are my system specs:

Dell Inspiron 530
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33GHz
ATI RADEON HD 3450
3GB DDR2-SDRAM
DELL E2009W (Digital) Monitor at 1680x1050
Windows Vista 32-bit Home Premium

And my PSU:

Delta Electronics DPS-350VB-1A

+12VA/12A, +12VB/18A
+5V/18A +5Vaux/2A

Wattage Ratings:
Max power: 350W
The combine power on +12VA and +12VB total 300W max
The combine power on +5V and +3.3V total 160W max


I just want to know if any of this cards would work on my system :)  help is appreciated

An HD5750 would work, but I doubt it has a 6pin PCI-E connector. 300W of +12v power is good; Dell PSUs are pretty good quality.

An HD5670 will work without a hitch, though.

I have a 6 pin PCI-E connector spare from my PSU: does this mean that a 5750 would work?

A lot of cards come with a 2 4 pin molex adapter to 6 pin PCI-E connector. Or you could just buy one(heck I think I got some lying around)

Dell power supplies from delta are quite efficient, I believe any of these cards should work for you. I suggest going with the 5750 if you can find it within budget, I ended up getting the 5770 cause it was only 10 more.

Yeah, your good, max draw of the card is 86W

With the 5770(max draw 108W) on my overclocked phenom 965 BE, Under loads I don't get above 250Ws and I am using an antec green 380 W PSU. I totally think you are good.

ok thanks :p  then the question is which one of these is the the best preformance wise? The main reason i want this upgrade is to get a gaming graphics improvement, so which one should i buy? also, are there any other cards (less than £100) that i should be considering that would work on my system for gaming?

your answers are much appreciated :)  :)

A 5750 usually out performs a 4850, I think the 5750 is the card for you. Mostly because it can game and it is exceptionally power efficient so it shouldn't tax your PSU too much. I don't really know how the pricing works out in countries outside of the USA. I was able to get my 5770 off ebay for around $120. I am totally comfortable buying from ebay though. But as for going retail and needing a card that is Power efficient, I think the 5750 is the best fit, much better than either the 4770 and the 5670.

If you ever change your setup(CF mobo + new PSU), you would be able to crossfire and get some impressive results. both CF 5750 and 5770 results very tempting to me.

hmm thanks for the reply. if you were wondering i can get a 5750 for £80 new in the UK, but are you certain it is better than a 4770? (which i can get for £65)

I have never used a 4770 and directly compared it with a 5750. I was basing my answer off what I have read. The 5750 is on par the 4850, some games may give a better FPS to the 4770, but overall the 5750 beats the 4770. This link compares the CF 5770, CF 5750, 5770, 5750, and 4770

I say go for the 5750.
