The XFX 5670 is a decent card for the price.

$74.99 + GST after MIR

the motherboard has a PCI-e 2.0 X16 and the card you suggested says its PCI-e 2.1 X16.
Can i use a 2.1 card in a 2.0 slot?

Yes, I believe both speeds are the same...

My brother is currently using that card in his rig and his motherboard has 2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots and it works great.

It won't be an issue.

If you were to install a PCI-e 2.1 card into a PCI-e 1.0 slot, then you'll have issues.

My mobo has a PCI-e 1.0 slot. :(

What card are you running at the moment? for $75 you will really like the abilities of the 5670.


Here is what my brothers pc acheives with it



1440x900 resolution

Athlon quad core @ 2.9

4gb 1600 ram

xfx 5670



Crysis

low and medium settings DX9

35-70 fps avg 50-60

Higher settings kills the card

15-25 frames avg 15-20


Metro 2033

medium DX9

avg 45-50 fps

Call of duty 4

high settings

70- 85 fps

modern warfare 2

high settings

60 fps vsync

Black Ops

45-55 fps

Overall its a good card for the money, especially if your on a budget rig that shows some performance...
