hi,

im planning on buying a ATI 5770 for my little bro, and was wondering whether it was a good idea, he has an Athlon 64 x2 4200 cpu, and 2gig ram.

If you need more info plz ask.

thanks.

but what graphics card does he have at the moment? thats the real decider imo, he may benefit more from some extra ram for Xmas instead :)

Ram would definately help out as well but if its one or T'other, get him the card for Xmas and tell him to get more ram himself :p

The card is a little Overkill for that chip, but if he checks out his Mobo chip support list, he may find a chip upgrade in his future too.
I think He'll find it a good boost from the current one
and with the card doing more of the work, may find cpu performance inproves
