Need help for the Hd6670

Hello I have a computer and I want to install a video card inside so i can play bf3 on medium setting or so.

My monitor is 1280 x 1024 and i'm not lookin to run the game at high setting all I want is to play with good fps.

Since my pc has a 300w psu I'm gonna replace it with a 500w psu and install a video card also.


The components are : Asus Radeon 6670 1gb ddr5 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-121-4...

Power supplie : antec 500 w http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

So my question is Will this psu (with 500w) be able to run the video card (asus radeon 1gb ddr5) and the rest of the pc ?

My second question is will I be able to atleast run bf3 on medium setting or low setting on 1280 x1024 with the asus radeon 6670 1gb ddr5

Thanks in advance

#2. Don't know.

We need to know the specs of the computer to tell you if bf3 will run
I am running bf3 on an hd 6770 and e5200 @ 3.75 on high on 1280 x 1024 I am using an old crt from 2001 21" too.

#2 this is hard to answer. your graphics card will achieve a given avg. frames per second. diff ppl prefer very different fps. You will LIKELY enjoy the gameplay with this card on medium settings and it will DEFINITELY run no problem on low.

good power supply

This is all assuming you have a decent 4 core PROCESSOR. If you dont, you can forget about bf3 unless its hyperthreaded dual core or something.

I have an amd athlon 64x 2 4800+ rated at 2.51ghz I think it won't run bf 3 since it's a dual core right ?

Or do you think I have any chances with that cpu.. xD

I think i'll have to upgrade my cpu also. :S
April 10, 2012 9:53:25 PM

i run it on dual core and it's ok
April 10, 2012 9:57:23 PM

that is a very old cpu I think you will need to buy a new computer if it's possible tell us you're budget and we will help.
April 10, 2012 9:57:29 PM

what do you mean by ok ?

Because you said earlier that you have the 6670 on 1280 x 1024 and you can run it on high setting (e5200 is a dual core) . How many fps do you have ?

I'm assuming I'll be able to run on medium with my dual core cpu ?

Edit: i forgot to say that i have 4gb of ram.

I can put around $500
April 10, 2012 10:00:26 PM

I have the hd 5770\6770 not the hd 6670
Edit: for 500 $ i think you can mange a good i3 2120

the architecture of a cpu is what makes the game run well, in fact BF3 - a descendant of BFBC2 is actually CPU intensive by default anything higher in detail, your GPU adds into the taxation list.

* you'll be able to play at a descent frame rate just don't expect eye candy to jump out of your screen ;)

Nice!! :o  at medium setting on 1280 x 1024 right ? :p

one thing i do is try and adjust details to suit the resolution, that way you can get to play the game sans the detail. I am someone who likes detail as much as the storyline.

can we have full system specs please?
and how much you have to spend to upgrade some of your parts.
April 10, 2012 10:32:13 PM

he sed he has 500 $ to spend
April 10, 2012 10:39:39 PM

its a computer dating from 2006. if i want to spend $500 on pc i'd like a new build instead of just upgrading an hp case lol I think it's possible to have a pc at $500 that can run bf3 on high setting and specially on 1280 x 1024

take a pic of the back side showing the psu and the inside, for us to be sure - if the psu is atx standard than it should....hang on a min, what PSU? are we building a new machine or just salvaging old rig to accommodate new GPU and psu?
April 11, 2012 4:29:40 PM

right now i think ill stick with same pc just gpu and psu upgrade.

took the picture from a site but it's the same pc .



as you can see the psu is top mounted :S

$500? You can do a nice build for that!

Motherboard: MSI H61M-P21 B3 - $52.99
CPU: Intel Pentium G850 - $92.99
Graphics Card: HIS Radeon HD 6850 - $139.99 after rebates
Memory: Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB - $28.99
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green 1 TB - $99.99
Power supply: Corsair CX 500 - $41.99 after rebates
Case: Antec Gaming Series One - $59.99

Total: $516.93

If you have additional $37, I'd strongly suggest getting Intel i3 2120 instead of Pentium G850. It would bring your total price to $553.93. Don't be fooled though - the pentium isn't a weak gaming processor, but for battlefield 3 hyperthreading, which i3 features, really helps. I also considered you could keep your old DVD drive.

psu - yeas will fit, but the gpu, dya have an available pci-e x16 slot? if its v1.0a then you'll need a new mobo. if its v1.0b and above, no worries there and drop in a pci-e card
April 11, 2012 4:54:45 PM

I know i have a pie-e 16 express slot available but I don't know if it's v1.0a or v1.0b



maybe this photo will help u.

I used to have gt220 before in this system. Maybe this info might also help you.

and for the psu are you talking about the antec one or the corsair one that can fit into the case ?


Sunius , what is hyperthreading ??

the psu's mentioned throughout this thread is based on an ATX form factor, so they should fit inside your case - you will need to do some cablemanagament once you have things inside the rig.

if you've owned a GT220, previously, then the new GPU will drop in nice and cozy in your case.

hyperthreading - google it.

are you defi sure? many times out of none, the OP slapped him/her-self for "thinking" they looked the same and bought parts off the shelf only to find out that HP have proprietary parts inside there silly lil cases.

take a pic of YOUR case and keep us posted.
April 11, 2012 11:47:42 PM

Here we go!! Hope it will help you to answer my questions !! :) 


Since the psu place is top mounted i cant buy the corsair psu because it will take the air from inside the case which is already hot air right ?










see it's the same :p

okay now i'm convinced, get the 500W psu and you'll be good to transplant the psu to another machine/case in the future. But if you could get a 80+gold certified psu, 550~600W that'd be awesome!

case seems to have bad ventilation... but psu will be fine
April 12, 2012 12:15:06 AM

thanks but which one I should get ? the corsair cx500 watts or the antec 500watts xD



And yes the case is small I removed some pci brackets in the back so it can has some air. :)  the removable side of the case has a lot of small holes so there is some air that can exaust xD


And that's the card I used to have http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
