Hi guys i was just wondering if this 5670 is an okay card for gaming, I am planning on playing games like Black ops, BFBC2, Portal 2. Crysis 2 etc.

Would this be able to run those games and most current games on hight setting's on a 23" Monitor at 1080p?

Is it worth cross firing? keep in mind I have a 500watt antec earthwatts.

GPU:

My Build:

AMD Athlon x4 640

ASUS MOBO

4gb ddr3 ram 1600 (planning on 8gb)

1Tb Samsung spin point F3R

500watt antec earthwatts 80plus bronze

Thanks

Not really.

I think you should be able to find a HD 5750 for $100 or less after rebates if to do some searching. You'll probably be able to play some games on high settings, but not all.

Could I power a GTS450 or HD 5770 no problem with room for ram update?

Additional RAM beyond 4GB will not boost your gaming experience.

Yea I know that but I am planning on throwing another 2 sticks to get 8gb of ram, and would I be able to power the rig with the 500 watt earthwatts running a 5770 or a GTS450?

the antec 500w is a good PSU and can power most video cards out there that are not the big flagship ones (GTX 480, 580, AMD 6990, etc.,)

5670 would be able to max out Black Ops and Portal 2 but not BFBC2 and Crysis 2.
I suggest getting a 5770.But even still you can probably only play BFBC2 on medium settings at 1080p.The 5770 is better than the GTS450.

HIS 5770 $130=$100 after MIR + Free Shipping

Yes you can power the 5770 or the GTS450 with your PSU.I'm sure you might even be able to Crossfire with your PSU.

Since it's from Canada the prices are a little more steep.I think your best option would be the MSI 5770.All the others have really high shipping costs.The MSI is free shipping.

MSI 5770 $120 + Free Shipping

Again the Sapphire Vapor-x is $10 not including a $20 REBATE CARD. Ala Canada Newegg.

I am pushing at least a 5770 because of the resolution you have.

I am too suggesting the 5770 for the resoultion.You won't be able to play acceptable fram rates with anything less.And the 5770 is just the best bang for your buck.

The MSI version i suggest has free Shipping.The Vapor X version has a $20 Mail in Rebate which after the shipping leaves the price tag still at $120.MSI version you dont even have to deal with the mail in rebate.Although it's a good card i don't see the point in getting the Vapor X if it's just going to end up being the same price and you have to go trough the trouble of a Mail in Rebate for just $20.

Canada newegg links are broken.Is it the XFX 4850?
Get the 4850 if you can't afford the 5770.But the 5770 is a slighty better/newer card.If you can manage,get the 5770 over the 4850.The 4850 is better than the 5670 but the 5770 is better than the 4850.

No,not at all.You have a quality PSU.Your PSU can Crossfire 5770's no problem.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-5770,2446...

The total system draw(test setup) with a 5770 is 200watts.You still have about 250watts left.All of your RAM after you upgrade it shouldn't be any more than 50 watts.
