hello experts,Seems I don't need to provide more info..though I am saying:I have a 2gb ddr2 ram,Intel Pentinum dual core processor@2.53 ghz processor and asus p5kpl-am mobo with intel g31 express chipset now,i will update my cpu later but now impossible but untill my cpu upgraded I want 4670 hd for atleast 2009 era games,i have choosen 512 MB DDR3 of 4670 hd....for minimum knowledge I really don't know what is bottlenecking clearly but it is a problem between gpu and cpu connection I know very well..I have a 450 watt INTEX(not decent) psu......Will I have any bottleneck problem?want expert advise..thanks

Pentium dual cores (different from PentiumD) are essentially low end core2duos. A 2.5Ghz C2D can drive up to a 450GTS/5770. So not no bottleneck at all, and you can higher, I would suggest another 2gb of ram unless u are using 32bit WinXP.

what do you mean? You monitor probably does 1440/900 max. Your CPU will run out of steam powering anything faster than a 5770 in most games. Some CPU dependent games might bottleneck quicker, in which case a 5750 or a 4850 will do just fine.

I just read about your power supply, seems like a non name PSU, thus you want something w/o a PCI-e connector. In that case a 5670 will work just great. 6670 are even better, but that just came out, so are a bit overpriced. Both card will not bottleneck your CPU, and will probably not melt ur PSU (no promises!).

A 4670 DDR3 is not a bad card, but you can get a 5670 DDR5 for almost as much, and its a better choice all around!

bottle necking: for a rig to be balanced,say, a faster cpu needs a faster gpu.In your case, you have a low end cpu,and also,4670 is a low end gpu,so there should be no imbalance in your computer.Freely go to the 4670.

between,whats your budget.

Not bad at all if you go with 1GB, but its useless for you. At your resolutions, 1GB will never be used, and if you bump ur resolutions (buy buying a 1080p monitor), than the card will poop out before that memory is used anyways.

If you are trying to band aid your PC, 4670 will do fine, if you are trying to squiz all possible life out of your system, go for the 5670. THat way you can play games like Rift, Mass effect 2, Fallout NV, SC2 and some others will descent settings!
