    OK, I'll be wanting to know a few things about video cards. What's the right one for my system and how to install it. I'm looking to upgrade from the one I have but, not wanting to spend a lot of money on a new power supply if, I don't have to? I want to be able to play the games  today with less stress on my card. However, I don't see anything here dealing with AMD.

    Right now, this is what I have in the PC I'm gaming with now.

    OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
    Version:  6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
    System Model: Gateway FX6860
    System Type: x64-based PC
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3401 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
    Turbo Boost & Hyperthreading
    Power: 500 Watt

    GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5750 Series GDDR5 1GBVram
    8 GB DDR3 RAM
    AMD 14.12 Omega Drivers

    Monitor: AOC 20" 1600 x 900  16:9

    when i first started down the road of messing with computers i was using nvidia and EVGA my first mother board and embedded gpu were all nvidia and evga. amd has alot of great cards to choose from and your system can handle it. i also hear that with windows 7 you can get a free upgrade to 10
    http://shop.amd.com/en-us/gaming/graphic-card#4092cec5-70d9-430c-996d-d27ae5b3c64d=%7B%22k%22%3A%22%22%7D#Default=%7B%22k%22%3A%22%22%7D here is a list of some cards they also have cards with 8 gigs of vram which is great . with that you will be ready for 4k resolution.

    here are another bunch of gpus unlike evga they really dont give you an idea of how much wattage og power supply you need also if you can take a snap shot of your system motherboard and post to phptobucket i can see what kind of slot you have. your system is similar to mine i have a z68 mother board i think your is h67. the problem with the old chips they dont make our motherboards anymore. i wanted to upgrade but it would cost an extra $700.00 cpu, ram, and motherboard.

    This is the one I've been looking at. It has more positive reviews than some of the other ones I was viewing. However, in order to utilize Crossfire, it will require a 600W power source, sad to say, mine is only 500W. Even so, I'm not going to be using dual monitors right now and I can always upgrade (money allowed) to a better power source at a later date. As for taking a picture of my motherboard, how? If it involves using a camera, I don't have one. Not very photogenic. Laughing I could try to take one with my cell but, Idk how to send one online to an img site? I never use that function. I really don't use it for anything more than calling a taxi when away from the house. :/

    Anyway, I'm strapped for cash and have been saving up for a new card a while now. Like for the past year. I'm really trying to stay under $200 if at all possible and with AMD products.

    Also, I've never OC'd any of my video cards before and couldn't even if, I wanted to, don't know how?

    Here's the info from CPU_Z. Just click on it.

    how to build a htpc A5cdif-4

    I really don't know what I should do? The way I see the prices for a lot of these cards, $200 more and I can just buy a new PC with one of these video cards already installed, in most cases.

    Also, I just noticed something odd abut the way CPU_Z detected my CPU. It's showing 1.59GHz and my specs show 3.40GHz, what's that mean?

    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3401 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

    I'll review that video, thanks.

    i tell you brother keep an eye on new egg they drop price frequently and you get yourself a decent power supply at a low cost and it makes sense to wait because Amd and Nivdia are always trying to slug it out with cost and quality . so always keep your eyes peeled.

    do you have two PCI Express slots open ? you can get some decent deals on older cards and go sli instead of cross fire.

    I'll check again but, I opted out of that card for another one a lot cheaper. This is the one I got instead and saved like $50.00. Plus, I'll get an extra $15.00 rebate. It's ordered so, I'l get it soon.

    That video makes it look like simple work to install a card so, I hope I don't screw something, as simple as, that up? Laughing
    If this card doesn't work out in the system I'm putting it in, I got other systems with AMD cards that need upgrades as well.

    It's all in and running fine. Can't even hear the fans and some times, I wonder if it's working? Very Happy I got a good PC though. Having to tweak all my games again for the new card.

    Thanks for the help. Cool

    Thanks.

    Those are of FarCry4. I have it on Steam but, it's an Ubisoft game. It requires you to have their launcher installed. You can't get it from Ubisoft or, Steam, however, if you get it from Steam, you'll still need an Ubisoft account and use their launcher. All Steam does is, sell it to you and link you to Ubisofts' launcher if you want to play it and vice/versa if, you purchase it from Steam. If you purchase it from Ubisoft, you can omit using the Steam app.

    There's not that much difference with this card as was with the other one in graphics, however, this game needs at least 2GB of VRAM and my other one only had 1GB. The game was poorly optimized for many platforms and even players with high-end systems, are having issues with it. Player fixes have been given though. I had to change two values in the games' files and now, the game is running fine. That's even with this new card installed. I was still having issues after I got it. I still had to look for a fix. Mad

    It's a great looking game, that's for sure.

    If you have a Steam account, it's best to wait for one of their sales to get it, that's what I did. I got both, the Season Pass & the game for the price of the game alone.

    Yeah, it's a beautiful game. In these screens, I had. 'Volumetric Fog' enabled. I have some other screens with it disabled. They look better.

    I've been taking a look at some of my other, XP version, PC's and am thinking about upgrading one them. However, I think it would have to be a complete overhaul altogether. I'll keep my eye out on NewEgg.
