Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33Ghz Intel DG33FB Classic 8GB (2GBx4) RAM ZOTAC GTX550Ti 1GB DDR5 Everything runs well. Almost every game runs on high (Not ultra/max) Total System Rating - 5.8 Graphic Rating - 7.3 Gaming Graphic Rating - 7.3 Deemo13 a c 163 U Graphics card a b 4 Gaming September 1, 2012 4:36:55 AM No one really cares about the Windows Experience Index. It doesn't grade well. Use a benchmarking software like 3DMark 11 to judge computer performance. What is the power supply? It should be fine with the Core2Duo, but most likely not with your power supply.

Deemo13 a c 163 U Graphics card a b 4 Gaming September 1, 2012 4:45:56 AM That's a pretty slow Core2Duo. And what power supply are you running? abhi_reapar September 1, 2012 4:46:10 AM atx g-tech 450 watt psu.............however,it might be old but i m using this psu since the last 4 years Deemo13 a c 163 U Graphics card a b 4 Gaming September 1, 2012 4:49:34 AM I wouldn't exactly endorse using that card with that power supply. abhi_reapar September 1, 2012 4:57:10 AM anyway i will get a better psu with enough watts......can i play fifa 13 on high settings????? Deemo13 a c 163 U Graphics card a b 4 Gaming September 1, 2012 5:02:51 AM Its not really the watts that counts, its the quality. If you had a good 450W PSU, you would be able to run a 550Ti no problem. Good brands are Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, and PC Power & Cooling. That being said, I would recommend the 7770 over the 550Ti. The 550Ti is quite old, uses alot of power, and the 7770 is just flat out faster. Deemo13 a c 163 U Graphics card a b 4 Gaming September 1, 2012 5:08:14 AM Its the benchmarks that matter, and the 7770 is just flat out faster. abhi_reapar September 1, 2012 5:09:50 AM but 550ti has more bandwidth,192 bit in comparison to 7770......is it just the gpu clock dat matters while gaming??? abhi_reapar September 1, 2012 5:15:05 AM how do i know the benchmark of a particular graphic card?well,obviously i cant get to know the pros and cons of a card until i get in my own garage....bt still how do i figure it out???? Deemo13 a c 163 U Graphics card a b 4 Gaming September 1, 2012 5:19:08 AM http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/536?vs=541 On a benchmarking website. The GTX550Ti for the price honestly sucks. Uses more power and performs less. abhi_reapar September 1, 2012 1:59:23 PM so what choices have i got???can u give me few choices among gfx card in same range as 550ti? Deemo13 a c 163 U Graphics card a b 4 Gaming September 1, 2012 4:56:55 PM Mainly the 7770. The 6850 is better, but more expensive. You need a better power supply for sure though. abhi_reapar September 1, 2012 5:07:26 PM ok i will get a 7770 hd but will i be able to run that card with the same psu? Deemo13 a c 163 U Graphics card a b 4 Gaming September 1, 2012 6:13:09 PM That I dont know. I would personally get a new one to be safe. Unless it has good 12V amperage. Can't find your answer ?
