Hi there,

I am looking for a high-end Gaming-PC. I bought an MSI H55-P33 Motherboard with i5 Processor and a 4 GB Corsair RAM. I got a 500 Watts TAG SMPS. Now I am thinking about putting an XFX ATI-Radeon 5770 HD in there. I tried to install XFX ATI-Radeon 5450 HD on my pc but it was not able to give any display on my LG Flatron LED 22" Monitor. Now I am thinking whether or not the 5770 HD will work on my pc?

Now I am thinking will this configuration run the Call of Duty:Elite? :sarcastic:

you are under powered you need a bigger power supply to run a 5xxx series. It recommends 500 I think but youneed more than that at least a good name 650 watt and you will be fine with that

Best solution

You'll be fine. A non overclocked HD 5770 uses around 78w of power under typical gaming conditions. A TAG SMPS is probably generic PSU of average quality, but should be adequate enough for a HD 5770.

AMD and nVidia generally recommends more wattage than you actually need. Of course if you do extreme overclocking, then that's a different issue.

My system below in my sig is powered by a 550w Seasonic PSU with a Q9450 OC'ed to 3.0GHz and I also have 7 drives as well.

wow than thats a good psu then....I have always been sketchy about psu's since I blew my 600 that was supposed to be enough.....and I blew that while runnin a 2dmark test....well bigger is always better for psu's in my opinion and a just enough power psu to run your system will create more heat

Thanks, that was some real detailed info which even my CE wasn't able to give. He just said "Some 5770 work on 500 W and some don't." But when I asked why lol he didn't had any answer. :)
