I am looking for a new graphics card and my computer currently has AMD Radeon HD 7560D. what are some good graphics cards I could replace it with? I was looking at Radeon HD 7770 or ATI Radeon HD 6770.

Thanks!

  1. Did you look up your current power supply? I'm sorry to say that from what I can find, your power supply is not strong enough for either of those cards according to AMD's website recommendations.

    Are you able to upgrade your power supply too?
  2. Get the 7770, you could get an 6670 and Hybrid crossfire that with the APU but overall the 7770 will do better by itself than hybrid crossfire

    Hybrid crossfire is an option for a cheaper upgrade and less likely to stress your PSU (300W unknown) IMO thought the 7770 doesn't draw that much power

    What amperage is the 12v rail for your PSU? it should be on the label on the side of the PSU

    My motherboard has a PCI E 2.0 x16, does the fact that the 7770 is a 3.0 matter at all?

    If you're getting a new PSU then the 7770 will be all good

    PCIE3.0 is compatible with pcie 1.1 and 2.0 but the connection speed will run at the speed of the slowest part

    What model PSU are you getting?

    3.0 cards will work in 2.0 slots because the PCI 3.0 standard is compatible with previous versions of the technology. It will just operate at 2.0 levels.

    Nothing special, just whatever i can find at bestbuy that wont be to bulky for my PC.
  8. Look for a model from Seasonic, Rosewill, Corsair, Antec, XFX, Cooler Master

    Seasonic > xfx >corsair > antec > rosewill > CM

    All PSU's that fit into normal cases are the same size fyi
