Yes, if your PSU is of adequate wattage. The board has a PCIe x16 1.0 slot, but PCIe cards are backward compatible.

What I'm trying to say, is your motherboard's PCIe x16 slot for the video card is version 1.0. The HD 6770 is PCIe version 2.1. But not to worry, because the HD 6770 is backward compatible with your motherboard and will work. There have been some instances of 2.1 cards not working well with 1.0 slots, but they are rare. To be absolutely safe, you may want to pick a card that is version 2.0

Except for older less powerfull ones, AMD 2.1 cards are hard to find anymore; except for small ones. I never had any problem with a 2.1 card in a 1.0 slot. I didn't mean to scare you away. It's just a caution.

If you want a 2.0 card... You may want to look into an Nvidia 550Ti. It is a 2.0 card and is about the same power level as the HD 6770 you mentioned.

If your monitor's resolution is 1680x1050 or less, absolutely. It's a lower mid range gaming card. Here's an 'on paper' comparison with the HD 6770: http://www.hwcompare.com/9713/geforce-gtx-550-ti-vs-rad...
Search for "550ti review" for many hands-on reviews of the card.

I think you will be fine, even at 1080p. But if you notice the framerate falling off to where it gets 'jerky', just back off on some of the eye candy a bit. MSAA (AntiAlaising) is one of the worst framerate killers. Keeping it low or off will help. And newer games make use of FXAA which is much less demanding.

No way at 1920x1080. Not with a HD 6770 or GTX 550Ti. I have 2 HD 6850s in Xfire, 8GB DDR3 1333, and a quad core at 3.7GHZ and still find an occassional game I can't max out at 1080p and maintain good framerates. Metro 2033 is one of them.

You'll have to back off on the settings somewhat as I said. Or play at a lower resolution.

Dude, you should go with the 5770 over the 6770. It is cheaper, has better drivers, an insanely better data rate, and can be overclocked more depending on the brand.

Who in the hell would pay more for a 6770 knowing that?

I had a 5770 and it was a little beast of a budget card - wasn't a game I couldn't max at a reasonable resolution.

I had 2 different HD 5770s at 2 different times. They were great at 1680x1050 but couldn't keep up the framerates I needed at 19xx X 1xx0 resolutions. But yes, the HD 5770 is superior to the HD 6770. The HD 6790 is closer to the HD 5770 today.

Unfortunately, HD 5770s are getting harder to locate. You can still find them if you hunt a bit. Amazon still sells them: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0035K6H2C/ref=asc_df_B0035K6H...

Yes, the 5770 is not made for 1080p. But boy it is a little workhorse at 1600x900 - where I ran my games in.

Crysis, I would play on high settings/AAx2 in 900p @ 60fps (overclocked slightly). For a budget card - amazing.

Unfortunately, in higher resolutions and/or higher settings the frame rate would literally crumble. But if you are willing to make a few concessions, the 5770 still offers maybe the best bang for your buck out there.

I do hear they scale terribly in crossfire, but I cannot back that up.

Damn.

I was wondering how someone who had two 5770's would describe the 5850. I know it beats the 5770, just wondering by how much (from an actual user).

I didn't have them together. I had them in different machines I built for others. My only other experience with AMD cards has been with the 2 HD 6850s I have in Xfire now. I always had Nvidia before. But here is a comparison if you are interested...

Thanks.

I cannot believe 4870x2 is equal to a 6970. It would be a total nightmare keeping those two cards cool.

I know the 5770 really struggles at high resolutions (really bad), but to me, it is a workhorse. I know the 4870 didn't have the advantage of better drivers, DX11, or being overclockable like the 5770, but it is still puzzling to rank it equal with the 5770.

I do like the lists though. I just found those 2 things a tad odd...
