    And by a large margin.

    And yes u will notice difference.

    And about the PSU what brand/model it is ?
  4. oh I see.

    the PSU brand is "power choice"

    and last question. how do I know if a game can run on my PC when I buy HD6870? I mean when I check the system req of games it shows like geforce 560 gtx or something like that

    thanks again!
  5. Well Gtx 560 Non Ti is on par with 6870.

    So u will do game. I linked u a benchmark where you can see game running with Hd 6870.

    Your PSU its not even a brand :S Im worried about it.

    Consider getting this and it will suffice you. You wouldnt have to worry about it :)

    65W Cpu
    155W Gpu
    32W Ram
    15W Hdd
    25W Dvd

    =300W

    IMO you should really buy this PSU. That HP psu its scaring
