Need help in upgrading my low-end gaming pc...

Hello, :hello:
This is my first Thread !!

My current pc is

Intel Dual Core E2180 @ 2.0GHz : Performance rated at 3.0GHz

ZEBRONICS NVIDIA NF-7050 motherboard

Nvidia GeForce 7050/ nForce 610i 256 Mb Onboard Graphics

992 MB RAM DDR2

250 HDD

ZEB-450W SATAPLUS (20+4Pin) PSU

And I wish to upgrade to -

3GB RAM DDR2

Power Color AMD/ATI Radeon HD5670 1GB DDR3 -- www.flipkart.com/powercolor-amd-ati-radeon-hd5670-1-gb-ddr3-graphics-card/p/itmd5ynejajvnugy

I want to play latest games like Max Payne 3 , GTA IV, Skyrim, CoD MW3, BF3 , Hitman 5 : Absolution etc. on the mid settings and on the res. of 1280x720 or 1024x768.. I'm confused that my mothrboard which has a PCI-E 1x16 slot.. but the gpu which i have selected is having a PCi-E 2.1x16 Bus Std. will this card suport my motherboard and give the performance i need? I'm pretty tight on budget.. so I can't upgrade my cpu.. but i have seen many youtube videos with hd gaming on this card and this cpu... will it give same performance.. ?

Will this card support my rest of the specs and how much memory(RAM) my motherboard would be able to hold ? It has two slots.. Please Answer in Detail... :D

Thanks in Advance!!

P.S. my motherboard ain't no good for overclocking.. i don't want no overclocking..!!

  1. And i want to play the above games on WIindows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit
  2. The motherboard should support that graphics card, as all versions of PCI-E are backwards and forwards compatible.

    I can't seem to find your motherboard anywhere, but I don't think 3GB of RAM is possible without 4 slots. With 2 slots, you might as well go for 4GB. As in 2 in each slot.

    That GPU should be a nice addition!

    And welcome to the forums!

  5. As in PCI-E 2.0 is compatible with PCI-E 1.0 and PCI-E 3.0

    And what about Windows 7? Will you be able to play the games? Well BF3 would struggle but everything else should run fine. Not like high or ultra graphics but you know.

  7. And 450w psu would be fine even if i play for 5-6hours relentlessly??
    And i want to play at atleast 1280x720 with 0 lags any above mentioned games?
  8. With the 5670 you should be perfect. GTAIV will probably lag a bit, but thats just because its GTAIV.
  9. So should i place my order with this hope that this gpu will support my specs and run as expected?
  10. As opposed to placing an order with the hope that it doesnt work, I think so. :)

    It should work, you do have a PCI-E X16. Post again on the forums if you have problems.
  11. I should order, right?
  12. If you want it, go for it.
  13. I want it.. Though it should support also.. So i should order?

    Go for it.
