Hey guys, im a student as of now, and I really cant build a competitive gaming system like a core i5 750 with cross fire of hd5855 with tons of ddr3 rams,

my old graphics card died and since i cant build a new system my last option is to get new pci-e 1.0 graphics card, i dont bother to try a pci-e 2.0 graphics card even if its a backward compatible because i read in somewere that its not always proven, some work and some not,

here are what i searched after few days,.

PowerColor 2600xt 512ddr3
Inno3d 9800gt 512ddr3

these is the best 2 pci-e 1.0 that i can found,

do you guys know other cards other than this?

my system:

Processor: AMD Atholn x2 (brisbane core)5200+ 2.7 ghz
Ram: kingston 4 gig @ 800mhz
Motherboard: jetway m2a693Plus-VP
Hard drive: 160 gig HD
Optical: LG DVD Burner
Graphics Card: ?

Like rolli said a 2.0 card should be fine, you probably want to avoid 2.1 cards however. The HD5770 like he recommended is probably the most you should consider with that processor. What is the native resolution of your monitor?

^^At your resolution, you will be able to max out settings for most games with the HD5770. You can even do with a HD5750 and save the cash. Are you planning to upgrade your monitor soon?

Nope, im fine with it, if im going to get new monitor i might as well build a new gaming rig, just want to have new graphics card for playing games at the moment,.

or do you think a 9800gt ddr3 is enough?
i mean, it only sells now for about 63 dollars in the place im going to buy,.

If you don't care about DX11, then the card you have is quite good for a 17 inch monitor.

^^Hey rolli, could you tell me why the 2.1 cards are a problem with the 1.0 slots?

He doesn't have a card yet, or hasn't told us at least.
A 9800GT will be pretty good for 1280x1024 assuming that is the native resolution of your monitor. You mention Crysis however and that is one of the most intensive games around and the HD5770 would be more appropriate if you want to max out settings and use AA in that game.
Here is a general ranking of the cards you should be looking at with a low resolution monitor;
GTX 460 768mb > HD5770 > GTS 450 > HD5750 > GTS 250 > HD4850 > HD4770 > 9800GT > HD5670 > 9600GT > GT 240 > HD4670
The HD5670 and above will be good in general but if you are looking for something to attempt to max out the most intensive games like Crysis and Metro 2033 I would stick with the first few cards listed above.

i think im fine with the 9800gt now, dont have it yet,. and I believe the 4 gig ram helps alot since im in a 64bit windows 7, also do play crysis before with my 9400gt 512 ddr2 at 1024x768 with the setting before mainstream setting i cant remember the name(with some slowdown sometimes),.

with 9800gt 1gig ddr3 i think its enough and it cost like 63$ in the place im going to get it,.

Exactly why I do not know, soon after the release of the HD5xxx cards we started getting reports here with people having issues with them, mostly no video. Some motherboard manufacturers did BIOS updates that would solve it but not for all their 1.x products. Therefore it is safest to buy the 2.0 cards instead of gambling on the 2.1 which might work!

All the pci-e 2.0 cards can play to your pci-e 1.0 without a problem they even giving the same results in 2.0 pci-e slots.
