This card came with one of the computers I recently bought, and I was wondering how good it was compared to my old 8400 GS (512MB). It will be used for a free online game (League of Legends) and watching movies.


These are the specs:

– 1GB of DDR2 memory
– DirectX® 10.1
– 80 stream processing units
– 12x custom filter anti-aliasing (CFAA) and high
performance anisotropic filtering
– HyperMemory™ under Window XP™ and Vista™(1)
– ATI Avivo™ HD video and display technology(2)
– Unified Video Decoder 2 (UVD 2) for Blu-ray™ and HD Video
– Dynamic power management with ATI PowerPlay™ technology(3)
– Built-in HDMI with 7.1 surround sound support
– PCI Express® 2.0 support


I just felt the need of posting the card's specs since it seems that it was only sold in Europe.


Right now the 8400 GS allows me to run the game at 30 FPS at a 1024X768 resolution with mid settings.


Here are the Requirements to play this game:

Minimal requirements:
Free HDD-space : 1,5 GB
Operating system : Windows® XP/Vista/7
Processor : 2 GHz Processor
RAM : 512 MB RAM or more
Videocard : DirectX 9.0 or higher compatible Videocard

Recommend:
Free HDD-space : 1,5 GB
Operating system: Windows® XP/Vista/7
Processor : 3 GHz Processor
RAM: 1 GB RAM or more
Videocard : GeForce 8800/ATI Radeo 4850 or higher



And when it comes to watching movies, my computer is bit laggy with HD activated.


Also

I recently upgraded from a Pentium 4 HT 3.20 GHZ to a Pentium Dual Core e5500 (2.8 GHZ). I also upgraded my RAM to 3 GB (was 2 GB).


so basically I'm wondering if that card (XFX HD 4570) will improve at all my performance compared to the low-end Nvidia card my computer has. And also how much of an impact that new processor and the extra RAM will have on my performance to play games and watching movies.


The only other games I need it for are TF2 and some emulators (only for SNES/PSX/64 games that never got a release outside of Japan). The later are more on the CPU hungry side, and ran just fine in my old system.
