The DDR5 version of the card is significantly better.

But depending on how much you have to spend to buy it there may be better options.

I have a Pentium E5400 dual core 2.7 GHz, 4 GB RAM and LG E2250V. I'm from Spain and I've seen these 2 options: VGA NVIDIA G-FORCE 240 OC 1GB, GDDR5, PCIe, DVI GIGABYTE = € 98.00. And VGA NVIDIA G-FORCE 240 GT OC 1GB GDDR3 PCIe GIGABYTE = € 109.00. They are overclock, right? I read that it is not good because it will spoil more, right? But if I recommend for something better I'd be delighted. Is for games. Thank you very much.

What other cards do you have that are in your budget? 4850? GTS250? I think the DDR5 GT240 is even slower then the 9800GT. (not by much though) This means that even the 5670 might be a better buy.

Definitely get an HD5770 if that is your budget. It is approximately twice as fast as the GT 240.

yes but can he fit a dual slot card in his unit.
the hd5770 is now in single slot card but is it available yet.?

take into account everything, not just a better performing card.
all I'm saying.

Who said anything about needing a single slot card? There are single slot HD5770s available but I have no idea why you bring it up as it's a fairly rare requirement that certainly shouldn't be assumed. Even if you want to take "everything" into account cases that need a low profile cards are significantly more common than ones that need a single slot card. Ignoring the possibilities of a non-standard case the better question would be about his power supply.
Anyway he has a 1920x1080 monitor and the HD5770 is basically the minimum he should consider for gaming imo.

This is my whole computer:
ST Tacens black box prior s / f.
CPU E5400 2.7 GHz Intel CD sk77.
Asus Intel Core P5G41C PL-M LX.
2 MEM 2 GB DDR3 1333 KINGSTON.
500 GB HD MASTER SYSTEM SA.
POWER SUPPLY 500WT 12.
...
With these features which you advise me I will do better for gaming? without spending more than 120 - 130 €.
ATI better than Nvidia?
Thanks for everything.

Spending slightly more for this card would be wise considering your resolution;

If not then get the HD5770 mosox linked.
Overclocking your processor would be a good idea BTW as well as adding another 2 gigs of ram.

AND THIS OPTION COULD RUN ME? THINKING ABOUT A POSSIBLE FUTURE: CLUB 3D HD5770 - graphics adapter - Radeon HD 5770 - PCI Express 2.1 x16 - 1 GB GDDR5 - Digital Visual Interface (DVI), HDMI (HDCP) = € 122.87.
I made a MESS, THE TRUTH. THANKS FOR THE HELP.

The HD5770 will be alright but not great for your resolution. If you can't afford the GTX 460 I linked then it is the best you are going to do. I would get the card mosox just linked instead however as it is cheaper, a better brand and has better cooling than the card you are talking about.

I have 4 GB of RAM and Windows 7 32 bit, and 3.5 GB ONLY MAKES ME REAL, YOU SAY TO PUT 6 GB of RAM in total? BUT I HAVE TO INSTALL Windows 7 64-BIT TRUE? THANKS

all you need is 512mb version


512mb isn't much these days, sitting through many of the games that I play 512mb is easily used up and with larger textures that newer games are using things can get dicey when it goes for the texture cache sitting in the system ram and pagefile.

Didn't see jyjjy's message, get the 460 if it's in your budget but give us more details about the PSU, the 460 consumes a bit more.

I can tell you first hand how a GTX 460 1Gb performs as I own one. They are good cards but need more attention and mainstance than most cards but either than that there are few games that max out these cards. Overclocking the vram doesn't boost performance much but the point of getting the 1gb version is not bandiwdth but extra vram and L2 cache. The shader core however gets hammered and overclocking is highly recommended.

You said you had 2 gigs of ram earlier.

I think you read wrong, I wrote 2 MEM 2 GB DDR3 1333 KINGSTON. I wanted to write 2 x 2 GB DDR3 1333 MEM KINGSTON. But good does not matter, I think the option [...] http://www.pixmania.com/es/es/4122 hjNWFlNjU3 is the one that might interest me. But thanks for everything anyway.
You are agree with me?
