    I think Graphic Card wont be enough for high end gaming, though i plan to by one when i get enough money

    Even if i buy a GPU do you think it will be enough for my old PC
    right now i only have 2Gb of RAM,
  7. And if i bought a Graphic card now will it be able to keep with the future updates which. i am going to do.
    Like support a 1155 socket etc. :-)
  8. Ok Even if i Quite on Buying a New Mobo Will a New GPU Solve my Problem For Gaming

    And a Card Like this One
    XFX Radeon HD6570 1GB DDR5 ATI PCI E Graphic Cards (HD-657X-ZHF3)
    Will Support my Old Motherboard or Not Please Help me on this one...
  9. Best answer
    yes this graphic card will work on your motherboard and 2GB RAM is also enough for all games.HD6570 can allow you to play all games ,but if you want something for high end gaming try to find cheapest HD6670.
  10. Thanks for The Advice Bro
    And the Other Thing is Will This Graphic Card Support the New Mobo and CPU Which i will Update in near Future Like , i5 and a DDR3 Motherboard

    Thanks a LOT
  11. Here are Some GPU's i been looking and What are your Recommendations...
