More about need graphic gaming
  1. 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.
  2. is ok...i dont know...

    suggest me a new card

    i am looking on Radeon HD 5670

    should i buy dd3 or dd5
  3. if i have a very low powered power supply
    which graphic card should i use
    Radeon HD 5670 or Radeon HD 6670?

    or are there any other cards
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. sorry what does pci-e 1.0 mobo mean?
    i am afride to get this card because of its specif(not clear from site)
  8. does DG41RQ has one
  9. dude i need it to play good games,will it be ok?
  10. 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.
  11. thanx bro
  12. 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.
  13. my psu
  14. "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.
  15. ..even wit low settings
  16. 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.
  17. :-(
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. dude thank u
  21. r u a gamer?
    if so name your fav
  22. i love RE4
    guess wat i played in pc
  23. BF:BC2 - Batman Arkam Asylum - Dragon Age - RE5 - Halo 2/3

    Good luck... hope your games run smooth and look pretty
  24. will let u know
  25. You can run crysis with avg.23FPS at that resolution at High with noAA

    23FPS is crap.... and that's average, imagine what the low could be... not playable for me. his other games should be fine.
  27. i played crysis in 9400gt(low settings)

    cant this (6670)do any better
  28. suggest me some survival horror games
  29. Get 6670 and don't ask anymore question Please. I don't know which games are good.
  30. 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 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.

    blonde ambition
    blonde and blonder
    hottie and the nottie
    alone in the dark
    battlefield earth
    and so on...
  35. Will my CPU bottleneck my HD6670?

    or should i go with HD5670
  36. Not really, your 2G ram might. I would upgrade that to 4.
  37. yahoovishnu said:

    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.
  38. no it will not be bottle necked by your CPU and if you are unsure about PSU change it
  39. Good question ; PSU is this ; GRANDIZ model:ATX-450wp4 , but i get no hits on that, pci-e version is asked but never confirmed.
  40. motherboard is dg41rq

    but it is not clear weather it supports pci-e

    my PSU is wierd

    pls help me.........

    will a photo of PSU help?
  41. if you can obtain images for your motherboard's pcie slot and psu's ratings, yes.
  42. check your motherboard and the expansion slots. whether it supports pci-e or no
  43. how to find difference?
  44. how to post photos?
  45. to post photos you must to search for how to in the forum's help.

    seem like crap PSU. just change it
  46. It has 2.0 mobo. Psu looks crap indeed. Still, it probably run the 6670.
  47. 6670 will run? maybe. But It will crash when you OC and doing test like furmark.
