Yes, 5570 is the best you can get with your power supply.

p/s: I know this is off topic but can we put 2.1 graphic card in PCI-E 1.1? Just asking.

There have been issues with that setup, some board manufacturers fixed it with a BIOS update for some of their products but not nearly all. So the safe bet is if you have a version 1.x slot on your board then stay away from a 2.1 card.

I would agree with rolli59.The 5570/6570 seems to be what your looking for.

thank you rolli and stank...one more question with that card i will be fine installing it in my computer without need of a power supply upgrade.250watts is fine for that card.

Total power consumption will be about 200watts so you should be fine.
