  1. Hello.
    It would help if we know your powersupply, resolution and budget.
  2. And your processor. ( and speed )
  3. I tried finding out the Watts on my power supply but couldn't. It's an RB-550 and I think its 550watts.
    Processor - Intel core 2 quad Q6600 @ 2.4ghz
    Resolution - hmm. I'm currently working at 1280x1024
    Many thanks!
  4. As far as budget - I think that won't be the constraint - rather the motherboard and power supply probably will...
    Thanks again
  5. After some research with my limited abilities I've come up with this one - AMD Radeon™ HD 6570 Graphics.

    I'm looking for something that will sustain me for 6 months or so before I completely upgrade my computer.

    Again, budget is not the issue but the limits of my mother-board and power supply (which I wouldn't like to temper with)
  6. Or maybe this one, quite a bit faster and around the same price i believe ( maybe 5 or 10 bucks more ) ; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150542
  7. +1 to 6670 but you should not buy card ri8 now stick to 8600gt if u r changing this pc after 6 months but if u have money then buy it
  8. Thanks guys.
  9. One more questions please -
    the 6770 requires a "450 Watt or greater power supply with one 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors"

    Is that 75w 6-pin PCI connector essential? I don't think I have one. Just the "traditional" connectors. In that case - Should I go with the 6570?
    Thanks again
  10. The 6670 doesn't need one, the 6770 does, but you can use a molex adapter for that.
