Alright so, I have the ATI Radeon HD 4350 and I want to upgrade it to the ATI Radeon HD 5770.
I wanted to know if my computer can support this graphics card since it's $150 and I don't want to waste that money on a card that won't work on my computer :P.
So, here are the specs:
PC Model: HP Pavillion p6342f (worth $650 when I bought it in last July)
CPU: Intel Core i3 530 @ 2.93 GHz
Graphics card: ATI Radeon HD 4350 (want to upgrade to 5770)
Motherboard: MSI IONA 1.0
RAM: 4 GB DDR3
HDD: 625 GB Western Digital
I'm also running the PC at 1920 X 1080 resolution if that helps. So, is that card compatible with this hardware? Thank you!
EDIT: I now have the HD 5770 in my system along with a Antec 550w PSU, thanks for the help guys, the card works great :)
Yes your MoBo should support PCI-E 2.0, as long as you have the right amount of power in ur system you should be fine.

lol what are the chances of me stumbling upon this thread today for I just ordered that card yesterday and it will be arriving tomorrow but yes as long as you have a 450 watt PSU or above and a PCI-E slot and enough space in your case it should work lovely lol

Alright guys so I just checked and unfortunately.. my PSU is 300W :( So what card could you recommend me that would work on a 300W PSU and those specs above? :/
