Atifirepro v5700

I want to upgrade my graphics. I have a AMD Phenom II x4 945 Processor 3.00 GHz, 8 GB ram. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. Would this graphics card work for me? I am not sure which graphics card to buy. I would appreciate any suggestions anyone has. Thank you. Rose

  1. Budget?
  2. Well I can't spend alot ot money maybe between 0 and $200.00 US dollars.
  3. Considering you're using a mid-range consumer CPU, I'd say that you're not doing the kind of things that a FirePro card excels at. What are you using this PC for?
  4. What is the video card being used for? If your gaming than get a GTx 560

    OR 560Ti with rebate

  5. Yeah, uh, Firepro is a workstation card I believe, you're using this for daily use/gaming?
  6. yea Gaming sorry i forgot that part.
  7. I would grab that 560ti, best card for 200$. (if you get the rebate)
  8. I really wouldn't be pushing a GTX 480 in the day of the Radeon HD 7000 series and the GTX 600 series of power efficient, well performing cards.
  9. The Radeon HD 7850 performs similarly (slightly worse, can be easily mitigated with overclocking) at the same price point with much lower heat output and power usage.
  10. The 480 is suuuuper hot and draws a ton of power.

    Yeah, we're talking almost double the peak power at load of the 7850.

    470 vs 7850 (doesn't have 480 for some reason)

  12. I don't disagree that the performance per dollar is good. It's a great deal in that regard. It's the performance per watt which is quite bad compared to current generation cards, which justifies its price.
  13. I agree, the 480 is a great card. However.. Playing Crysis 2 at Extreme Settings and DX11 and High Res Textures maxed out my card in the low 50's.

    +1

    Quite odd too that we have almost the exact same system :o
  15. I believe my power supply is 350.
  16. Pump up that OC on the 2500K aicom. :)

    Edit: Rosebud, a 350W PSU is not going to run anything, you need to upgrade to at least 500 for a 560.

    Well he's going to need a new PSU to comfortably run any GPU around $200, 28nm or not, especially since it's probably an OEM PSU.
  18. yea i figured I would have to get a bigger power box just wasnt sure how big of one i needed.

    Boy you guys reply real quick, well I just bought this power supply, next will be the card.
  20. Yea my video card right now is ATI Radeon 4650. I will probably go with the Radeon 6870 to go with the new power supply i just bought.
