I believe i didn't see in your specs what your old psu is, so a bit hard to say if you need a better one.

The 6670 uses 2 watts more but is a better card.

But without knowing your exact psu power it's hard to say if these will run, could be a 200 W for all i know.

To be sure you can open your case and look at the info at the side of the psu. It shoulde state the Amperes on the 12V rail(s) to.

at your res, gameplay is more dependent on the cpu than the gpu. still, a 5670/6670 with gddr5 is probably the best you can benefit from.
your psu is an important factor. if your psu can't support it, no use getting it.
what are the amps on the +12v rail on your psu?
iirc the 5670 has 61w tdp, the 6670 has 66w.

If you have the money you can buy it. If it runs with the mysterious, unkown psu ; who knows ?

Also i do think you have a pci-e 1.0 mobo ? Sometimes the 2.1 gpu versions aren't compatible.
December 2, 2011 10:31:42 AM

sorry what does pci-e 1.0 mobo mean?
i am afride to get this card because of its specif(not clear from site)
December 2, 2011 10:33:39 AM

does DG41RQ has one
December 2, 2011 10:38:11 AM

dude i need it to play good games,will it be ok?

I mean that your motherboard has probably a pci-e version 1.0 slot. Sometimes with older motherboards the AMD pci-e 2.1 graphic card don't work with the motherboard.
It doesn't happen often but i'm not confident enough with motherboards to promise you it will work.

Maybe someone else who reads this can tell you. ( Jijjy ? )

Or try to google to see if anyone else with your mobo has done this before.

All this is theoraticly btw. you really should first open your case and have a look at the powersupply.

Get the MSI R6670-MD1GD5 from smc international. It is supported by DG41RQ. You specs are ok for medium gaming at mid/max settings with no/2xAA. The only concern is your power supply.
December 2, 2011 1:52:20 PM

"heavy gaming" - depends on what games you intend to play...

Your processor and RAM are at bare minimum for most newer games.. so don't expect amazing results.
December 2, 2011 2:03:02 PM

..even wit low settings
December 2, 2011 2:22:15 PM

Yes it should run... i'm letting you know that your setup will not produce great quality... performance at low settings should be fine.. just don't expect decent FPS at medium settings and good resolution.
December 2, 2011 2:51:38 PM



not even med setting in following? :-


i) Amnesia – The Dark Descent


ii)silent hill 2

RE5 split screen
Penumbra: Black Plague


Deus Ex: Human Revolution
December 2, 2011 2:56:26 PM

Again... depends on games... not sure what those require. Those are "older"... cannot give you a solid answer sorry. I'm guessing you will be fine.
December 2, 2011 2:58:38 PM

r u a gamer?
if so name your fav
December 2, 2011 2:59:03 PM

i love RE4
guess wat i played in pc
December 2, 2011 3:05:09 PM

BF:BC2 - Batman Arkam Asylum - Dragon Age - RE5 - Halo 2/3

Good luck... hope your games run smooth and look pretty

23FPS is crap.... and that's average, imagine what the low could be... not playable for me. his other games should be fine.
December 3, 2011 3:17:51 AM

i played crysis in 9400gt(low settings)

cant this (6670)do any better
December 3, 2011 3:44:03 AM

December 3, 2011 4:00:21 AM

Get 6670 and don't ask anymore question Please. I don't know which games are good.
December 3, 2011 5:50:51 AM

for heavy gaming I would recommend you wait 'till you gather some more money. If you had all the right specs and the only thing you needed was a graphics card, then you can do quite a bit around $100. But most likely from those specs you are going to need a new PSU and CPU. witch means you would go far over budget.

this is a good card for the money http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... that CPU will almost certainly bottleneck it. Meaning That the slower CPU will slow this card down. I would suggest a quad core rather than a dual. AMD makes some good CPU's for good money. You don't REALLY need a fantastic CPU for gaming. It does certainly help, but usually the graphics card is more important.

If you really can't spend the extra money (I really can understand.) then the radeon 5770 isn't a bad card either.

Also, does your motherboard support PCI express 2.0 or 2.1? That is rather important.

Not really, your 2G ram might. I would upgrade that to 4.

both are nearly identical. you should be more concerned about your motherboard and psu supporting the 5670(61w) / 6670(66w).
does your motherboard have a pcie 2.0 slot?
does your psu have enough amps on it's +12v rail?
if answers to both questions are yes, then get a 6670 1gb gddr5. get the non-oem version, oem versions are usually different, sometimes inferior. so check your card's specs with a non-oem version's specs.

December 4, 2011 10:18:58 AM

no it will not be bottle necked by your CPU and if you are unsure about PSU change it

if you can obtain images for your motherboard's pcie slot and psu's ratings, yes.

check your motherboard and the expansion slots. whether it supports pci-e or no
