    not for now, maybe 1 or 2 year after
  3. I have heard that PCI-E 2.1 cards doesn't work with 1.1 or 1.0 slots, 2.0 does. So go with the one that has 2.0 (The nvidia card).

    thanks for info
    but is there any software to check motherboard PCI-E because i have still doubt on my motherboard

    so which nvidia will be better gt240 1gb ddr5 or gt440 ddr3 1gb
  5. I don't know any of them, the best way you will check is in the manufacturers' website. I think the best thing is to get nvidia, GT440.

    ok i will see nvidia gt440

    but i check web site and found XFX HD 5670 1024 DDR3 is also PCI-E 2.0
    but whithout fan
    here link http://www.flipkart.com/computers/components/graphics-card/xfx/itmd2ryn8gzymfsj?pid=grcd2rynm5fhkedq&_l=fw+oKmOSuCP0ATliBN8PQQ--&_r=D761cSeSOYH60Uwt_FeErQ--&icmpid=reco_pp_history_graphics_card_4


    so it will be gt440 vs xfx hd 5670

    what u think
  7. The card you want to upgrade to will be bottleneck by the processor. I would suggest go to save up and upgrade the whole system route. Because the card will not be fully utilized.
  8. Best answer
    5670 is faster and you are really smart there on looking PCI-E 2.0 cards :)

    I think it will run hotter but if you do not care about temperatures it's fine. You don't worry about bottlenecking much. These are low end parts so I think it will match up with the low end processor.
