Yeah, that PC is set to use a 7750 for sure, more than enough power.

I would recommend a more powerful card because you have such a powerful processor. At least a 7770 and more like a 7850 or 7870.

Also, you should use two sticks of RAM to take advantage of dual channel mode.

Yeah, but before that i should get a better psu.. That could be in christmas or so...
And also i was thinking in upgrading my PC by buying another 4 gb stick ram..

For now, ill stay with the 7750 .

It wouldn't be a massive jump over the 6670 to be honest. If you wait for more funds you can spring for a better PSU and a better card.

It's a 2 tier difference, which you might be able to see realistically, but I would go bigger.

And what power supply do you have? I suspect its not a very good one, since its got 20a on the 12V and 40a on the 5.

Yeah but i dont want to wait more, because i only have enough money for that video card.
And my PSU isnt a certified one, and yea its not a very good one, but i heard it can handle a 7750.

Yes, a 7750 will work well with that PSU. It's probably one of the best low-range cards you can get.

Next time for an upgrade, also consider getting a PSU with more amps/wattage into the +12V rail.

Im really happy with this card, before having this one, i had a 6670 DDR3, and when playing BF3 , upgrading it to High settings, i got 15 FPS more! and when playing GTA4, from High ( except shadow ) to Very High i got also 10-15 FPS more.
