Hello,
Looking for a recommendation for a new graphics card which will run on my existing intel DP35DP motherboard.
Just got Skyrim and I definitly need a better one. I currently have GEFORCE 8600GT.
Thanks!

Hello.
It would help if we know your powersupply, resolution and budget.

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!

As far as budget - I think that won't be the constraint - rather the motherboard and power supply probably will...
Thanks again

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)

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

The 6670 doesn't need one, the 6770 does, but you can use a molex adapter for that.
