  4. Recommending a GPU without first knowing what kind of PSU he has is pointless, IMO. If it is a weak PSU, especially one that is as old as the Pentium D he is running, then he'll have to buy a new PSU too. Hopefully not though.

    So aliromy70, lets do this. Can you list what PSU you have?

    Edited because I didn't read enough. >_>;

  6. Well, I can't comment on the 5770 HD, but the E8400 is a fantastic processor. I run that right now in my main rig.
