    Default Planning To Buy A New GPU

    Guys I am planning to buy a new GPU for my following config.

    Intel Core 2 Duo E7400
    Intel DG41cn
    2 GB Ram
    Samsung 17' Flat / Dell 17" Widescreen ( I dont use the dell one that much, I use it for my another cpu mostly)
    1TB+500GB HDD

    Wat i need more to mention, I am not mentioning any figure or budget as my first priority is to know which gpu will be suitable most for this config. Gogeta got almost same config and if I recall correctly he got gtx 460. Dunno he is getting full support or not.

    Please dont post or give advice to update cpu. Thanks in advance.

    At that resolution, HD5770. You can go for a HD6850/GTX460 as well, it will give a performance boost but will be slightly bottlenecked by the CPU, especially at that resolution (I presume 1280x1024?)

    2 question, R u talking about that primary monitor i mention, i mean 17" Flat, is it is than its ok
    2nd q... What is bottleneck? Everyone mention the word bt I dunno the meaning.
    And so I should go for 5770 or GTX 460 or 6850.... can u mention price now?

    I think he is, because he estimated a resolution of 1280x1024 which is common among most 17" flat monitors.

    Actually bottleneck means hindrance or obstacle of some kind. If one of your hardwares is holding other hardware(s) back from performing at full power, that is what we call a "bottleneck". If you have a powerful GPU but a weak CPU, it will not be able to feed the GPU enough data. So, the GPU will not perform as good as it should have performed. That is what we call a "CPU bottleneck". Same goes for other hardwares. Very powerful CPU will be of little use when combined with a weak GPU. And a monster CPU+GPU configuration will be laggy when you have insufficient RAM (causing the game to fetch data from HDD every now and then). I think it is clear now.

    He was talking about it as the cards he suggested are considerably powerful, while your current CPU is not (but not by a far margin). That is why you may notice bottlenecks due to CPU like in heavy fighting scenes with explosions etc.

    Bottleneck is basically the fact that the processor cannot supply enough data to the GPU for processing, IE the GPU is more powerful than the processor. Thus at lower resolutions you will see that the fps your getting is lower than what a 5770 is capable of. But still should be a good gaming machine nonetheless as your CPU 7400 still has a lot of horsepower left .
    FTW!!!!!!!!!!

    For your monitor anything above HD 5670 is going to be good. I will not suggest GTX 460 because its power consumption is high and the cpu you have might get bottlenecked. Your target should a mainstream card like HD 5750 or HD 5770. If you prefer Nvidia then GTS 450 (price is slightly high then compared to AMD Gpus)as its on par with HD 5750. All these are well suited IMO for the PSU and CPU you have but undoubtedly the HD 5770 will be the best option here.

    An HD5770 would be perfect for you.

    Lower Resolutions = Higher Bottleneck, so a 6850 or GTX 460 won't be able to put it's full potential to work. And as you have an Intel Motherboard, there's no chance for overclocking too.

    A 5770 costs around ~11,000tk. And what Power Supply do you have? Is it a branded one? If no, then you'll have to get a branded one, something like a Thermaltake Litepower 450W will do, costs around ~3,000tk.

    Your mainboard supports DDR2 right? You didn't stated about the graphics card slot of your mainboard. So I am making an assumption here.
    I'm assuming that your mainboard has got a PCI Express 2 slot. If so, you can buy XFX Nvidia GeForce GT 220. Its a great GPU. Price's also as low as 9000tk.....
    You can play all the latest games (Crysis 2, Bulletstorm, Dirt 3) by that.

    But the problem is, with 2 GB ram and that GPU, you can't get the taste of Hi-Def gaming. But don't mind... :-P

    I bought my gigabyte gt220 before a 8~10 months ago at a price of ~6000 and at the same price you will get more powerful gpu like 5670 which wont consume much power like 450watt or less
