More about 5670 needs maxing
  1. Thats a Old GPU, get a better one like 7750 or GTX 650
  2. i need it under 100$
  3. 7750 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102969

    GTX 650 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130827

    They are Non Factory OC cards.
    So OC them by yourself and get the best performance.
  4. also look at my psu
  5. and i have PCI-express x16 will it run?
  6. I agree with the HD7750.

    You can find the HD7750 for ~$100 these days. It is ~3X as fast as the HD5670 and uses just a little more power than the HD5670 too. Since your CPU is unlikely to be fast enough to keep the HD7750 busy, the HD7750 will likely end up using a lot less power and this may let you stretch your generic HP PSU's lifespan a little longer.
  7. 7750 doesn't require any connector of PSU.
    It draws power from Pci slot.
  8. u mean i will max gta five with it at 1280 x 1080 by also adding 2 gb more ram

    and will i get it at 80$ or below at used?

    Can't say.
  10. You can't get a card that will max out games for $100.

    P. S. those videos are fake.

    You have to be careful about which model you get. Some 7750s have DDR3 memory and you can find them NEW at around $80 and others have GDDR5 which provides about twice the RAM bandwidth and cost closer to $100 new.

    With a GDDR5 HD7750, you can play most games with most eye candy enabled at 1920x1080p.

    If you want to know how much these are worth used, eBay is your friend.
