  1. Same PC specs, same PSU, now where have I seen you before?
    Weren't you opting to buy a HD 7750?

    And I agree with greghome.
  2. yes i planned to buy hd7750 but i am not sure wheather my psu will support it or not .And i dont want to upgrade my psu .So i am searching for a decent gpu which can
    on which i can play games like gta4,assain creed,just cause2,nfs shift,etc at medium settings.

    I had given you suggestion already.
    HD 6570. It's better than the GT240 and consumes less power too.
  4. so among Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6570 1 GB DDR3 Graphics Card and PowerColor AMD/ATI Radeon HD5670 1 GB DDR3 Graphics Card which one should i buy keeping my psu in mind?And tell me wheather i will be able to play the above mentioned games at 1400*900. Thanks in advance for the help
  5. The HD 6570 is somewhat, a re badged HD 5670, but the HD 5670 does provide better, overall performance.

    The HD 5670 1GB GDDR3 should be okay, for that resolution.
  6. Quote:
    the 6570 is not a rebadged 5670.
    though performance is nothing note-worthy. it performs on par with the 5670 so just get the cheaper between them

    More or less, they offer almost the same performance.
  7. Thanks for your suggestion.I have decided to buy hd 5670.Can u tell me which games can i play and at what fps it would be helpful for me to buy games.
  8. You can play almost all of the games out there at 720p or lower. You might be able to play other, less demanding titles, maxed out at your native resolution too.

    HD 5670 benchmarks.

  9. Thanks gman i have brought hd 5670.Can u guide me how to diable integrated graphics and install hd 5670.It would be helpful
  10. Like Greghome said, it should automatically detect the dedicated GPU once placed in the PCIe slot.

    If it doesn't, then you can change it in from BIOS. I don't remember in which section though, but you'll be able to find it.

    But nevertheless, it should automatically detect the card.
  11. I have kept hd 5670 in pci slot and i changed the primary display as pcie.But my system is not starting.cpu fans run normally.please help me .

  13. I have kept hd 5670 in pci slot and i changed the primary display as pcie.But my system is not starting.cpu fans run normally.please help me .
  14. The system is working when i remove hd 5670.But when i insert it and run it is not booting.The system is restarting automatically.I just changed the primary display in bios from pci to pcie.The system is not working even befor i changed it to pcie.
  15. CPU restarting, could mean the PC being under powered. But that 400W should have been enough. Either that, or the PSU is just isn't good enough

    Did you make sure that the PCIe slot is not filled with dust or anything of that sort. Do you hear any sorts of beeps coming out from the CPU? Or does it only restart.
  16. i dont listen any beeps the cpu is just restarting
  17. Most likely the system is under powered. Have you got another PSU?
  18. No i havent brought another psu.I brought hd 5670 so that it wont be necessary to buy a new psu. I dont have enough money to buy.But my psu should support this card as u said right.Why it is not supporting?
  19. It is a pcie 2.1 card
  20. I don't think that's the issue greg.
    PCIe 2.1 cards have compatibility issues with PCIe 1.0 motherboards, not 1.1s. My cousin runs a HD 6850 on a G41 chipset like mine, and he's got no issues, whatsoever.

    The PSU must be weaker than I expected. It might not be able to deliver 400W of power, or even close to 300-350.
    Save some cash, and later on buy a better PSU. Do not buy PSUs from iBall, Frontech or any other generic brands no matter how much power they have rated. It's best you buy a PSU from reputable brands like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, XFX etc. I'd put Coolermaster, somewhere in between them.
  22. But i saw some post which says that hd 5670 will run on 250 W psu also.But why it is not running on my psu?
  23. rohitsuresh said:

    Maybe that PSU must have been a bit better. But I don't see how a HD 5670 will run a 250W PSU though.
  24. Can u explain me in detail why my psu is not supporting the gpu?.And can there be any other reason why my system is not restarting automatically.
  25. i already spent 4000 INR.Even if i buy a psu is there a guarentee that the card will work?
  26. Now when i try to start my system when graphic card is in pci slot then there is a fan noise occuring and system is restarting.The cpu power button is not glowing.Is this due to lack od proper psu? or compatibility issues with PCI-E 1.Xs?
  27. Can you try the card on another system/PC?
    Just to make sure the card's not defective in any manner, like greghome said.

    But honestly, would compatibility issues be related to the system restarting?
  28. Guys please help me to find out why my system not booting wheather the compatibilty issue or the psu is not supporting it.If psu is not supporting then i can buy a psu.But if compatibilty issue is there then buying psu is a waste as i already spent 4000INR on graphic card.
  29. Are you connecting the monitor directly to your graphics card and not your motherboard?

    +1 Sometimes people forget some most basic thing,
    If u can change the Display to PCI in bios means u can boot an got to Bios just fine.... after u change and resave the bios do u change the vga cable to the new gpu (not the mobo?)

    Can u tell more clearly what do u means sytem not reboot/restart automatically?
    Do u have black monitor or system just restarting/turn off after some times??
    Can u be more specific? Not being smart ass but more info will turn to more better solution....

    Edit: Do u means u not get into OS? I'm have a hard time to understand the situation. Have u tried deafult vga mode (windows) to enter os and install the new driver??
  31. There is just a black screen.And after few seconds the system restarts.There is no beep sound also.
  32. I changed display to pcie in bios without graphic card

    Have you got a spare PSU?

    Can you try that card on a friend's PC?
  35. so: using onboard grafic its okay, but when u connect the gpu the system restart it self after couple second.

    I would try this, Unplug the gpu, clear bios, check the 12v auxilary power 4pin is connected securely in the mobo, plug on mobo speaker, and then using onboard make sure the system is fine, check the voltage, temp, etc. Turn off, plug the gpu but keep using onboard video, is it boot or not? it gets to os or not? in the os is it detected new device? if it restarting, after it restart, is it continued to restart or keep turn on but no picture (there a beep from mobo speker), or it just turn off? (if it restarting but keep on just no display u can try to switch the vga cable to gpu without turning off the comp.)

    im affraid it could means 2 thing,

    1. U got a bad gpu card : Can u try it on another / your friend system, but i doubt usualy gpu fails, it not restarting.

    2. U'r psu cannot provide enough power because of aging or else : Could u borrow another psu?

    +1 to greghome about trouble shooting, Toms had links about step by step troubleshooting u can follow. (I'm forget the link)
  36. I have brought a 450W psu.Still the system is restarting.Firstly when i switch on the cpu button only red light glows after few seconds the system restarts from this time onwards both green and red light glows.
  37. Tried the GPU on another PC?
  38. The GPU is working fine on my friend pc with same psu.
  39. That's odd.
    You said you bought a new PSU. What's the model/make?
  40. The model is mercury with 25A on 12v rail.
  41. The model is mercury with 25A on 12v rail.
  42. Mercury isn't top of the line, and 25A seems okay.

    What was your friend's motherboard?
  43. Quote:
    It's the PCI-E then ?

    It's most likely the case, yes.

    I'd like to know his friend's motherboard though.
  44. His motherboard is Intel DG41WV .
  45. rohitsuresh said:

    He seems to be having a PCIe 1.1 as well. Sounds like your PCIe slot is defective.

    +1

    If it mobo problem, are u confident in flashing bios (check if there new bios). and hope the new bios fix the problem, but warning failed flash make your mobo defective.....

    -can u refund/resell the gpu and psu since it not work with your mobo, or patiently save money to change the mobo.
  47. Tell me some ways to sell my GPU.
  48. Do u think that incompatiblity of gpu with my mobo is causing restarting of system
  49. rohitsuresh said:

    Well, since you haven't even used the card, you can sell it for the price you bought it. You can sell it on ebay, if you'd like, or craigslist. Or you can just sell it to a friend, if he needs it.
    rohitsuresh said:

    Not sure if incompatibility can lead to the PC restarting, but the issue is not compatibility, but the PCIe slot of the motherboard itself.
