lol. don't bump post or your thread will be locked. performance wise HD5770 is better but GTS450 can be overclocked to perform near HD5770 stock performance.
mafia 2 use PhysX for it's extra eye-candy physics effect in the game and you're going to need nvidia card for that. if you don't care about PhysX then just pick a card that you like regardless nvidia or AMD. for crysis 2 even HD5770 will have to struggle at 1600x900 if you go for ultra setting
of course the hd 5770
hd 5770 is much better than the gts 450 the gts 450 is equal to hd 5750 also if u r going to buy the hd 5770 there are lots of good ediutions with good cooling for that card like Vapor x ,icq5, hawk
Personally, as long as the cards are available in your area and your PSU can handle the cards then a cheaper (in my country anyway)5830 or a similarly priced 5850 would be the best way to go. Much more horsepower than either card.
Yes there are editions of the 450 that beat a standard 5770 but then the 5770 can be overclocked as well. Unless you have no intention of OCing yourself and can get one of these factory overclocked cards for cheaper than the 5770 then your left with find something else or go with the 5770.
I recently bought CX430 Corsair PSU .
And when I connected to the system It is not working.
when I tested the PSU by shorting black and green channel , the chasis fan spinning.
My configuration is,
core 2 duo,
Asus P5G41T-M LX motherbord,
1TB sata hdd,
when I switch on, the green light on motherbord is ON.and when I switch the power button ON the system not booting...
when I removed the 4pin connecter to the motherboard, the cpu fan just spin and then off..I both wires are connected to the board, nothing is working.
what is the problem?
NB: I got a cable that is not supporting to my plug on the switch board, so I connected my old ordinary SMPS 's power cable to the new cx430..is that cause any problem?
