  1. Please can you give more information about your system? Which Motherboard do you currently have and what about your PSU?
  2. Plus what's your budget??
  3. A 5670 will run ok with the expectation of a decent 300w psu in mind.

    motherboard-asus p5kpl-vm
    1gb ram
    256mb intel g31 chipset.
    my budget is 3 to 4 thousands
  5. ok,i live in india too,and yes our prices are simply higher than that of newegg.
    your budget is a bit low buddy,you can only buy a hd 5570 gddr3 maximum for your budget.
    do you prefer online shoping,there is a very decent online store linx-india.
    they give the bet prices.
    search a 5570 from saphire because it is the lowest price you can find.

    And specify your budget in $.
    as we live in india,if our budget is rs4000,you should tell a budget of 50$.
    Good luck.

    Is your budget in Nepali Rupees or Indian Rupees??? For 3-4 thousands you can go for GT220 or GT240 if you are looking for nvidia cards. Those cards are not for Gaming though. It just can run games (not all) at Low settings.
  7. a 5570 is fine with that cpu. any more and you will see no difference as the cpu is not powerful enough. any more money is better off spent on more ram, you should have at least 2gb ram. also that cpu can be overclocked easily to at least 2.8-3ghz.

    is ati 5450 compatible to my pc?
  11. It would be better if you upgrade your RAM to minimum 2GB and OC your CPU.

    should be, but its a crap video card not meant for playing games. gt240 or 5570 or nothing.
  13. Well I wouldnt use the word crap :)
    It is an excellent home theater card which it was designed for
    an upgrade on most integrated onboard etc

    a gaming card it is not

    the cheapest card that can game is a HD4650
    try to get 512mb ddr3
    you can find them for around $40-$50 bucks depending on sales
    I got mine for $45 USA Ebay
    it is a 1gb DDR2 (yuck) Sapphire OEM card
    the OEM deals are cool
    same reference specs as retail but without the pretty alien girl or games
    you never play

    But while it can game (BiosShock 2 1920x1080 high setting,Warhead 1920x1080
    windowed mode gamer settings,Left 4 Dead 2 1920x1080 high settings)
    it is still a the bottom end of gaming cards

    A hd4670 would be a step up and cheap

    manu said the 5570 is best deal in your country so
    i am going by USA prices
    also gt240 is a good cheap card

    the higher the second number in ati number scheme
    for example 5570 better than 5450 but 5670 is better than 5570 etc
    the HD5670 is also a decent card (my next card)

    if you can find a 6570 cheap that is the best cheap card
    low power usage

    remember that unless you overclock your cpu
    it is a major bottleneck for higher end cards

    and two more gbs of ram will be a big help

    how can i overclock.
  15. i found this post about OC with your motherboard
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/245702-29-asus-p5kpl-deceptive
    there are preset OC profiles built in (10%,20% etc)
    also can change your FSB
    for example if your multiplier is 10x and your fsb is 266
    you would have 2.66ghz
    now if you went to 300 fsb with a multi of 10 you
    would have 3.00
    google "beginners guide to OverClocking"
    your board is limited but does have some OCing abilities
