  1. It should be alright, if there's any bottleneck it won't be of importance.
  2. In the weekend beta i was getting close to 20 fps with the 9500 gt, i want to try and get more if possible..

    So if i can do better then a 5670 what else can i buy that will work?

    Actually, give mi your FULL computer specs. I can suggest better cards then that.
  4. GeForce 9500 GT
    4 gigs of ram
    AMD 7750 Dual-Core 2.70 GHz
    Foxconn A74MX-K AM2+/AM2 AMD 740G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
    windows 7 64bit
    350w...need to update that too i know
  5. I suggest 6670

    I think your PSU should do fine. I check this http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/sapphire_hd6670/15.htm and system Power consumption is all below 300W. But I must to know what brand is the PSU. And, do your Motherboard support Pci-E 2.0? If no, then it is better for you to get a complete new system because your motherboard will not support 6670. Your system is too old right now. I will give you the parts.
  6. Yes it is PCI-E 2.0.

    and the PSU is logisys

    i just opened my case and it says total power = 330w and max output = 480 w
  7. Seems fine.
  8. Does max output mean i really have 480 watts?
  9. I don't know. I am no PSU master.
  10. Yeah definitely get the 6670 at least. It's only 9 dollars more.
