    The XFX 5670 is a decent card for the price.

    $74.99 + GST after MIR

  2. 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. :(
  5. cool i just did not want to go buy a card and find that i does not fit.

    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...
