More about need choosing correct video card
  1. what's ur PSU...check it in ur CPU(if it's the cheap one) tell me what's written with the +12v rail
  2. which psu do you have?does it has an 6 pin connector?

    hd 6770 will be the best card at that price just check whether you have 6 pin pcie connector or not

    if u dont have 6 pin pcie connector then get an hd 7750 which performs almost like hd 6770 and uses very less power and will work on 350w psu.:)
  3. My core Voltage is 1.256 V
  4. no i mean psu model and how many amps it got in 12v rail.:)

    a psu looks like this where u plug ur pc power connector



    open your case and look at the lable which look like this and it will be in your psu.:)



    there will be written your psu model and how manny amps it got in 12v rail
  5. I dont have that thing
  6. no you have that open your case u will find it without psu system wouldnt runs.
  7. i dont have that

    :D Its funny.
    Seriously, if your PC is currently running, you have it. The PC can not be turned on without the PSU.
    Or do you mean your PSU does not have the label similar to what sunnk posted?
  9. I DONT HAVE THAT ON/OFF SWITCH THING IN THE PHOTO
  10. But you have the box with the lots of cables, right? You do not see it outside of the PC. It is inside. If you are able to use the PC, then it must have the PSU. Maybe of different brand but the looks should not be too different. Can you take a picture of the inside of your PC and post here?
  11. i have like a shaped box inside but its in the top and its like attached with plugs

    yup dude that's d PSU...on it there will be a sticker ...tell me wat's written along the +12v box it wud be sumthing like 25A...tell the number

    yes thats the psu just rite all the information written on the psu label.:)
  14. in my PROCESSOR it says

    +5V 0.46A
    +12V 0.56A
  15. not in processer in psu (power supply unit)check it

    It will be better if you take several pictures of the inside of your PC in difference angles and so we can see ourselves. If it is not visible, we can point out to you to adjust angle or which part to focus on. Cheers! :)
  17. I cant picture the inside i dont have camera
  18. if u have mobile then take pic from it.:)
  19. nope
  20. We'd like to help you but because there is no definite answer to our questions, I will just take a safe recommendation for a graphics card that can fit into any kind of PSU and motherboard under your $100 budget:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-2.html
    If you want to graphics card with better performance & most probably do not need an upgrade for your PSU, the HD 7750 is recommended but its $109.99+shipping:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&Description=Radeon%20HD%207750
  21. ok let me tell u my VOLTAGE let me see .. brb
  22. Dude i found it the MAXIMUM POWER IS 550 WATTS
  23. ok so whats your maximum budget?
  24. About 70$
  25. so get hd 6670 ddr5 one or if u can get then get hd 7750 or hd 6570.:)
  26. IS HD5570 ok ?? for gaming?

    What is your monitor resolution?
    & where are you buying? Give us the link so we can choose from there & recommend to you.
  28. My monitor resolution is 1280 x 1024 thats the maximum

    and this is the place im buying here's the link : http://pcx.com.ph/components/graphic-cards-1.html
  29. and if u ever see the POWERCOLOR 5570 IM NOT BUYING THE 512 MB IM BUYING THE 1 GB ..
  30. I can not see the 5570 at PCX. But in any case, I do not recommend it. Given your monitor resolution & the available graphics card at PCX for < $100, I suggest the 6670 at P3200 or ~$75.00
    http://pcx.com.ph/components/graphic-cards-1/powercolor-hd6670-1gb-ddr3-128bit.html
    But you can also get the cheaper 5670 without loss of performance at only at P2750 or ~ $64.

  31. well for medium settings the hd 5570 is more then enough for high settings on that res get an hd 6670 or hd 7750 hd 7750 will be more better.:)
  32. Can u help me which is better HD5570 or Zotac GT430?
  33. hd 5570 is better then that gt 430 the hd 5570 uses less power and gives better performance then that card the hd 5570 is not an good gaming card it mostly used for htpc.:)

    That is why I suggested the HD 5670 at P2750 or HD 6670 at P3200.

    Give the kid a break. He did say he is just 1st year highschool. From where he is, it means he is just 12~13 years old. It's good that he even started asking about graphics cards. At least by asking he learned that he have the PSU after all.

    You mean maximum.

    Anyway, sabihin mo sa mommy mo, dagdagan nya lang ng P250 yung budget para mabili mo ito:

    sa konting dagdag na halaga e mas mabilis di hamak yung 5670.
  43. randomkid do u have Facebook? if u have can u pls write ur email add . so that we can talk it on faceobook . ty
  44. No. I do not have facebook. But you can PM me here in Tom's. I already sent you a private message earlier. You can send me a PM by clicking the green envelop near my avatar.
  45. sorry got wrong my maxiumum is only 65$ and beelow
  46. ok ill say something agen .. umm whats better the
    PowerColor HD5570 or the Inno3d 9800GT??
  47. The 9800GT is just a little more powerful but it also require PCIe power connectors which again needs that you look if your power supply have the PCIe connectors.

    So how much is the 9800GT being sold? If you are getting it 2nd hand and you have to pay for it, don't. If it is new, then the store is selling it to you just to get rid of it because nobody else will buy it unless is very cheap.

    You should know that the 9800GT is a very old model & tehcnology. It is already replaced by nVidia 2XX, 4XX, 5XX and now nVidia have 6XX. So its 5 generations old.
  48. huhuhu .. i think my mom is not buying me a videocard .. TT.TT do u have like an extra can u give for free .. :)) will really appreciate it?? i will pay for the shipment .. if u will accept ..
