Mobo: Intel D945GCCR Processor: Intel Pentium D 925 3.00 GHz RAM: 2GB DDR2 (533 MHz, DRAM frequency 266 MHz) Current GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS 512MB Monitor Resolution: 1440x900
HDD: 250GB Segate ST3250820SV OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP1
So, I am thinking of buying HD 5670 for this configuration so that i can play FIFA 12 (everything maxed except AA) at 60 FPS, and demanding games such as Crysis 2 at medium settings with 30+ FPS. All at 1440x900.
And No Overclocking or SLI/Crossfire.
Q1. Will HD 5670+my current configuration be able to achieve this?
Q2. Will there be some overkill or bottleneck issues? (if yes, how much?)
P.S.: If there are some alternatives/suggestions, please let me know.
yeah but your cpu is seriously lacking, time for a new build, you could always carry the 5670 over to a new build
what is your psu make and model? and budget?
you need to build a new rig imo that cpu is going to seriously hold you back a dual core is the bare minimum these days and you are below that so, I would be surprised if you were able to play crysis 2 on low honestly, I could be wrong but with your lowly cpu there is not much telling, like Ive stated several times, save for a new build is you best move at this point...
shoot I just whacked a little kid for his 120 GB Slim ps3 off craigslist the other day for 100 bucks lol dumb kid... just sayin if your budget is super cheap...
You could add a GTX 590 or Radeon 6990 card in there and you're still not going to be able to play those games on max. A Pentium D is just two P4s slapped together. A 5670 is a good match for that CPU (perhaps even overkill) but you're not going to be able to play those games on max, or even medium.
