• Is 5750 1gb a good card on a budget?
    44 replies, posted
I'm not a hardcore gamer but I do love to play most of the Call of Duty's and racing games now and again. Although, my 8600gt 512mb is dying and falling to alot of games now. I'm wondering if the ATI Radeon HD 5750 1gb is a good enough card to max out games like World at War at 1860x1050? My specs: AMD Athlon 4200+ Dual Core 2.44ghz (Rated at 6.30ghz) 2GB Ram Windows 7 32-bit I'm wondering how the card will perform on my computer? Fairly new to pc building so i'm giving it a go tomorrow :) My budget is of course around £110 due to the rest going to a decent PSU. Also, would a 4850 1gb be better or the 5750 1gb? Thanks.

I have one, it's more than satisfied me. It's surpassed my expectations. I manage to run fallout 3 at 1080p everything on highest and still get 40+ fps in heavy situations.

Of course me being new to all this, only know the basics :P Doesn't the vram help the resolution?
What PSU will you be getting?

Plus your res looks like more than one monitor setup, which is what Eyefinity is for and so the card should be able to do that with no problems. And if you look at the reviews at the website link I gave you, someone said "Amazing Reviewed By: on 2/12/2010 Tech Level: somewhat high - Ownership: 1 month to 1 year This user purchased this item from Newegg Pros: Just amazing card for the price, Install very nice stays cool runs all my games maxed out at 1920x1080 without a hick up Cons: None " :D Edit: Do you mean 1680 x 1050, because I don't even think 1860 x 1050 is res. Which if it is 1680 x 1050 than you will be fine.

[QUOTE=ferrus;20253927]What PSU will you be getting?[/QUOTE] It's one of Aria's own for about £30 reduced from some higher price. 750w if i recall?

This is because my bedroom is quite small and I have a gap in my case where I got something removed. Overall, my pc has maxed out COD 4 in that time on that PSU before now.

So while you may save £25 it may end up costing you hundreds in the end.

I read a review finding a good PSU and it mentioned buying a no-name PSU means 'buying twice' and nothing about damaging. I am after all going for one thats 250-300v more than I need so even if that power hit a peak it should be fine. I could afford a better one within the next couple of months anyway.
Also, cheap PSU means you'll need to replace it sooner. Seriously consider getting a good one.
[QUOTE=ferrus;20257745]Also, cheap PSU means you'll need to replace it sooner.

EDIT: As long as it does the job for that period.
5770 5750 will work on almost any cheapass psu, a 1gb version will give just a tiny boost in higher res atleast it is a great placebo effect.

what's up with that "rated at *retardetdly high* GHZ"? could someone explain?

I hope he means 3.6 or else he's using a liquid nitrogen pot.
i bet he thinks because its a dual core it somehow doubles his ghz
