  1. I would suggest you upgrade your PSU :) And I don't think you would need a new cooler, have you had any problems with overheating in the past? If not, no you don't.

    But a new power supply is a must. Here are some recommendations.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026&Tpk=cx430 -This one will be good enough for your PC and the 5770 :) decently priced too!

    Any from that list is fine. Though if you prefer something different, I would stick with Corsair, Seasonic, and Antec (Preferably around the 380-450w as well :lol: )
  2. no i dont have any overheating problem in the past but my pc make some really bad sounds like grinding noise very often , so is that a sign of over heating or what ?

    and one more thing i want to play these games on my pc , can my pc play these games with good speed with 5770 .
    cod - 2, mw , waw ,mw2 , black ops , mw3
    batman arkham city , gta 4 , resident evil 5 , assasin's creed 2 .
  3. Hello,
    I am running a Sapphire HD 6850 with a CoolerMaster eXtreme Power Plus 460w.My system specifications are-
    Intel Core2Duo E7400.
    3.00GB Ram.
    500GB HDD(Internal)
    I too had the intel g33/g31 chipset on my Hp pc but thanks to Tom's Hardware,I bought the HD 6850.If you don't like the CoolerMaster,you can go for the Corsair cx 430,which I am told,is better than my PSU.
